Default Cockpit night lights, 2.5.6 OB.

Latest 2.5.6.45317 Open Beta. No mods.
Cockpit night lights needs tweaking.

The default airstart setting is to bright.

White Flood Dim/Bright intensity is the same & is to bright.

Red Flood, Bright/Dim has the same intensity, MED has no flood.

Even if I "tune" all the, in cockpit displays brightness & Indexer, Console, Instruments brightness the radio, ACM & some other lights are still to bright.

ACM intensity wheel not working.

Edit: Console knob doesn't light up all consoles evenly.

At least for the radio repeaters, there are grey knobs on the lower right of each panel that you can use to turn the brightness down. The ACM panel is controlled on the Right hand side lighting panel where the Console/Instrument switches are located, turning that down should decrease their brightness.

it's been several weeks since I've flown at night, but make sure you're adjusting the ACM control at the top of the panel.

ACM knob intensity doesn't work at all.
