How to Fix Brightness Issue in Kingpin: Reloaded

Can’t figure out how to make the game brighter? Here’s the answer.

How to fix your brightness

If you’re struggling with making the game brighter and Brightness/Contrast sliders make things worse, here’s the solution:

Use the Gamma slider in the Video options, but lower its value instead of raising it. In most games, increasing / raising the gamma slider value will make the game brighter, but in this game it’s the other way around for whatever reason (probably a mistake in the code somewhere).


Gamma 1.0 (default):

Gamma 0.4 (lowered):

If you increase gamma to 2.0 (maximum), you’ll be staring at a basically black screen.

Hope this helps (took me some time to discover, so I guess there are others like me).
