Go into settings, click on color adjustment configuration:

 

With max settings, default brightness/contrast:

 

Adjusted brightness/contrast:

 

With most settings on low, still on Improved preset; default brightness/contrast:

 

Adjusted brightness/contrast:

 

Just putting this out there for those who haven't bothered with it yet.

 

It's a pretty big difference to me, especially on lowered settings as you can see, it makes the game look better, and doesn't increase graphics load whatsoever, as it's a simple brightness and contrast adjustment. Heck, I guess you could reduce other settings and just apply this adjustment, and the game will still look the same, pretty much.

 

FYI, saturation is always maxed, even in the default preset, believe me I checked.

 

PS: I worked hard to earn that Chinese New Year camo. Gold Type 59's are so mainstream...well I got a gold WZ-111!:great:

Well the first thing you should do is make sure you have a monitor properly calibrated to Adobe RGB to start with, and not make adjustments on top of potential faults.

Or just pick something that looks nice...

One of the problems tinkering with contrast is that it will make the game look better, but the darker shadows will make it visibly harder to see the enemy tanks. So you need to tinker with those settings to find the right balance, IMO.

I actually see a bigger difference between lighter and darker areas with these settings, precisely because the shadows are darker...they look too plain on low settings, this adjustment sorta boosts them. You'll notice the lighting in the default setting with max graphics and in adjusted setting with low graphics is actually quite similar.

 

I should point out right here...this fix is best to use on lowered graphics, I'll agree it makes things a bit too dark on max graphics, but it looks gorgeous.

While this options are nice

 

If you have GeForce Game Filter - you can get so much more and interesting results - with so many possibilities that make this in game options - poor options

Oversaturated imagery is personal preference, not something that is appealing to everyone.

So you prefer things looking bland and washed out?...

 

Alrighty. :hiding:
