Hi I've got the same problem described by the original poster. I was playing maybe 4-5 days ago, I accidentally minimized the game, and when I did, the settings from the game for gamma and brightness seemed to transfer to my desktop. Since then I have had someone re-format my computer, and nothing seems to have changed.
Umm, so I'm out of ideas completely. Is it possible that the game wrecked my monitor or graphics card? If not, why did re-formatting the computer not change everything back to normal? It's just an old crappy cathode-tube style Dell 19'' monitor, but up until I played this game, and minimized the screen by accident, things worke3d fine. It ran beautifully, my card temperatures stayed normal, never even had one error or crash. I'm sure I'm missing something here, please help!
