Since we've had the Hook_32bpp.dll we've gone through various degrees of brightness within the hangar

(Please note: that Blue Max's effect are not installed at this point)

but how do we get from this with no Hook_32bpp.dll (please ignore the craft and object) I'm just talking about the hangar

to this! Which includes the latest Hook_32bpp.dll (please ignore the craft and object)

.
There's no illumination what so ever the lights of the hangar are dull and lifeless

If it wasn't for every texture in the hangar being illuminated it would look like this

.
And this is without a Hook_32bpp.dll or fully illuminated textures (this is just to show what we have come from)

Sorry about this Jeremy, but please put some life back into the illumination :D :D :D :D
Thanks

Hello,
What is your brightness setting in the game config menu?

Dim, minimum, it's alway been set at that

The image above it basically the same as a hook_32bpp from 20 July 2019 16:14 you released 3 that day this was the second version you posted, to be honest I don't mind it

It is a little extreme for everyone else I think though, is it possible to tone it down a touch :)

Just tested it, that I don't mind :D

I had to remove the Hook_D3d.dll though as it's still playing up

The issue is related to the illumination default value.
It was 63.
In the WIP, it is 255.

We need to find a value that work fine in all cases.
