Hi Kavawuvi

How can I increase the brightness?
some maps are dark and i wish i could level the brightness, because it seems to be disabled since video settings.

Use dgVoodoo2 to change the brightness.

 

Chimera disables the gamma setting intentionally, and I will not be providing an option to re-enable it because it's actually really screwed up.

 

This is explained in the readme that is included with Chimera:

Why does Halo's gamma setting not work when Chimera is installed?

 

Short answer: Halo's gamma setting was disabled as it does a lot more harm than good. Basically, it's screwed up and there's no good way to fix it. This may seem like an inconvenience, but you really do not want to use this. We recommend using dgVoodoo2 for this, instead.

 

Long answer: How Halo's gamma setting works is, rather than changing Halo's own brightness level, it changes your operating system's brightness. It then stores the gamma setting by editing the registry. Halo is then programmed to restore the operating system's older gamma setting when it closes. However, this can only occur if Halo closes correctly. There is the chance that it won't close properly (exception errors, you closed it improperly, etc.), and if that happens, you may end up with Halo's gamma setting lingering.

 

We decided to disable this setting since it presented unnecessary modifications to the registry, it potentially ends up actually screwing up your operating system's video settings, and there is quite simply a better way to do it, anyway.

 

We are not going to provide an option to re-enable it. Again, use dgVoodoo2, instead.

Tiddy-bits:

Having FPS issues with latest version of chimera. It was fine when I was using chimera version that just released with lua support but now I'm losing like 90% of my FPS when I use updated version.

Assuming those screenshots haven't been rescaled, those are two different resolutions you were playing it, which is definitely a factor.

Oddly, this is familiar to you... as if from an old dream.

actually it is same resolution. I was running it in window mode while other was borderless I think? I get 900-1000 fps normally on 1920x1080. so I'm lost.

 

 

edit:  version that was just put out fixed my fps problems :)

If anyone could read and help me, I have a problem, I recently downloaded chimera from OG's post here, I enjoyed backpack_weapons, death_sounds and fp_legs, but chimera has a command called:

"chimera_split_screen 1"

this command change the HUD as in the image below. I don't know why the command doesn't work in the console, I just type it but nothing happens and I don't know if anyone has any script or recommendation for that, I will really appreciate it.  I repeat, the other scripts work for me, I have HAC 2, I have no problems with it and this command worked for me before with another chimera, but with the chimera that I downloaded here (which is not bad either) the command does not work for me. :C 

My discord is: TENSHI#0535
