Change brightnes ingame or outside game (PC)


I play this game with my girlfriend and we both sit in the same room. I noticed that when it is night in game we have diferent brightnes. I can run around withouth flashlight on but my girlfriend have to turn on the flashlight to se anything.
I have not found any setting for this ingame and I feel like I loose much of the atmosphere of the game plying like this.
Any solution for this?


I’ve been wanting to know the same thing, night time is too bright on my machine.


I can see what you are saying, but for me, the opposite is the problem; I can see it great on my gaming monitor but on my stream its very dark. So having no way to control it one way or the other is a problem. Anyone know how to do this, maybe in some config?


Sounds like you have different monitors and / or monitor settings.


I’d have to agree with @Taxen0 . This isn’t an issue with the game. I would bet on monitor settings mostly, but also just being different monitors. I suspect @Happydust has a higher end monitor or brightness settings are not at their default (increased).

And likely that the same reason @vonToddenstein is seeing difference in the live monitor view and the stream. Monitor controls have likely high brightness, but the stream sees the native brightness of the game.

Personally, I have a dual monitor setup. Both are same size (27"), but one is a 15 year old Samsung 1080p and the newer is a 4k LG. The LG is far brighter at its native settings. I also do content creation and photography, so I got myself a Datacolor Spyder calibration tool. With that, I was able to get both monitors looking somewhat the same. At least any video capture I do now looks the same in video as what I see on screen. That wasn’t the case previously.


Except that several viewers have commented that its too dark. I get that monitors vary. But not having a game adjustment isnt worth covering up; its still a problem to be addressed.


True that I do have a somewhat high-end monitor. But I have tried adjusting my settings to get the game darker and the settings on my girlfriends monitor to get brighter.
I just can’t get the “brigthnes” the same.
For that reason I would like a “adjust the slider so that the icon is barely visible” option in game =)
