I have mine at 1 now. Everything is much brighter with this update, even during daytime.

Yeah, set it with 1 during the day, and it looked fine at night too.

How are everyone's frame rates. I'm seeing massive hits around dubai, single player no other units on map. Like my frames went from solid 45's or maybe some slight dips under that in 2.5.5, to mid to high 20's in 2.5.6.

Rift S user - defo gamma set to 1 for both day and night.

Anything more just washes it out.

Look's brilliant its like new maps to be fair in low light conditions, also during the day the sky seems a more natural blue colour.

Anyway just need to kill the many many problems that 2.5.6 has created and then can actually enjoy it (multiplayer)

Sorry re FPS - hard for me as had to disable the VR mod which cuts the field of view cut down which i don't know why ED do not do themselves as can only look at the FOV at any one time to process around that is a waste of GPU- and lazy to be fair not to include it.

Anyway that aside, yes from when i didn't have it enabled (which had to for full screen screenshots) then there is a slight downturn, nothing massive however for me. That said i made the mistake of turning on the new feature of SSLR or whatever it is - do not do this in VR i dropped from 40fps to 24 ish - literally kills it.

Biggest hit i've found which has been logged but is a major problem was testing out the 14 to basically have a fly around and eat some miles up quickly on the PG map. Jumping into the rio pit for some reason i get a 50% drop in frame rates which makes the rio position untenable (not been able to test multiplayer because of the 2.5.6 problems however if its bad SP it's generally worse MP).

The major MP servers are all back on 2.5.5 due to crash issues, which may or may not be related to the lighting. Not clear on what those problems are, but it is a major bummer. But yes, if I'm struggling with FPS offline, its gonna be way worse online.

One of my bigger complaints right now, is under NVG's. The cursor and tips are treated as light sources, and therefore are really bright and unreadable in NVG's, and can wash out other things as well.

It's interesting that these are treated as physical objects in VR, but having them be more like an overlay would be better, at least as far as NVG's are concerned.
