SiN Steam - darker than your average bear.
 
I just started playing SiN Steam after beating SiN Ep1 and even with the brightness cranked, it's ages darker than what my original copy of SiN would be at.

For instance, in Freeport Bank when I open the secret vault in the room near the security system, I can't make out peep in the vault (which should be the Scourge of Armagon boxes, IIRC) and that's only one good example.

Is there some kind of 'jack it up' Brightness code I can apply or some kind of makeshift patch in the works?

Gracias,
Erik

Same here.
I create a lot of cartoons/graphics and use color correction tools.
The Source engine version of SiN was perfect but to play the older/original SiN on Steam I had to adjust the in-game brightness all the way up and it still seems much too dark.

Interesting. For me, I was able to get the original SiN much brither than Steam SiN or "Source SiN".

With Source SiN, I have the brightness cranked to 11 and it's dark as a hairy, dank cavern.

Has anyone figured out a way to brighten the game? I seriously can't play like this, I can barely see anything, I'm not having fun. =_=

I found this post very helpful when I was looking for help on the same thing: http://www.ritualistic.com/forums/showthreaded.php?Cat=&Number=163784&page=& amp;view=&sb=5&o=&vc=1

Short version - Go to the console and type in these three commands:
intensity 1.5
gl_modulate 1.5
vid_restart

And substitute 1.5 for any suitable number you like.

Wow, that worked wonders... problem now is my game is stuttery.. lol

Edit: HAHA this really sucks, your fix worked beautifully, but now the entire game is acting erratic. Controls are slow to respond, sometimes not responding at all, and the game stutters nearly constantly as I move around.

*sigh*
