If your monitor turns darker in fullscreen and the game doesn’t respond to brightness settings, you can fix it with setting r_overBrightBits from 1 to 0 If your monitor turns very bright when attempting to Alt+Tab ↹ out of the game, you can fix it with setting r_ignorehwgamma from 0 to 1 If the intro and ending videos have audio but no video after this fix, you can view these files externally by extracting them from localized_english_pak0.pk3.
