So here is the deal. Every time I start up the game, it changes saturation and color settings of my pc. Not just in the game, after I quit, everything is over saturated. I did a fresh 64bit Win10 install, with latest nvidia drivers, and its doing the same thing. any idea what yould cause this? I don't use any mods.

 

specs: I5-4570, gtx 1060 3gb

I also use a 1060 but don't get this problem. Updated to latest NVIDIA drivers last night still fine.

Try starting WoT with reset graphics.....

Are you running at native max resolution full screen?

I'm using borderless window mode with native res (1080p). This bug is present since they implemented this option (before there was only full screen and windowed mode).

Maybe it is your graphics card software that has game-specific settings?

some times gfx cards come with 3rd party software addons that are an "improvement" of basic nvidia drivers. Disable everything but the driver and see if that will help.

Strange, because it's doing it with WoT only, even stranger that in the Nvidia control panel, the color/saturation/constrast settings are the same before and after opening the game, but I can see the difference, and it affects everything. Sometimes it fixes when I change the game option to fullscreen and back to borderless, so it has something to do with the borderless window mode. I'll reinstall Windows 10, Nvidia Drivers (just the drivers with the control panel, nothing else) and the game. I wonder if it's gonna fix it or not.

If the settings are correct but the output is not, then it may indicate a problem with the hardware.

If you check Task Manager, WOT is probably still running after you exit it and have to close it manually.   

I need to close it manually and it fixes my brightness back to normal.

And my hardware has a problem, with only 1 game? I don't have this problem with any other game (and I have a few hundred games in my steam library).

 

BTW I did a fresh windows install (Win 10 64 bit pro), installed the latest Nvidia drivers, started up the game, everything was fine (it started in windowed mode by default), but as soon as I changed the setting to borderless windowed mode, the saturation/contrast and colors became dark again in the game and on my desktop....

Yet, it is totally possible that a particular set of settings/conditions triggers an error state in your hardware, since nobody else is reporting this issue. You may try to write to user support, btw.

Yeah I tried that, but all I got was a standard reply about updating drivers, etc, etc.... I still find it strange that this only happens when the game is running in borderless windowed mode, true fullscreen and normal windowed doesn't have this issue.
