I've taken a long break from STO and recently decided to get back into it. After patching up I found that the game was considerably darker than I remembered it being, so I attempted to manually adjust the brightness level with the Brightness slider. A nice idea I thought, but unforuantely the game seems to have a mind of its own and it will re-adjust the brightness to 100% behind the scenes as soon as I stop moving the slider. It does not actually move the slider back to 100%, it just changes it in the background.
So after having the loader verify the files and following that up with a full reinstall I still have had no luck getting the game to let change the Brightness setting. The game resolutely resets itself to 100% no matter what. Has anyone else had this issue and/or know of a way to fix it?
