Hello,

 

I decided to upgrade from Windows 7 to 8.1 today and I got most of the things working now.

I currently have a problem with San Andreas where changing the brightness ingame has no single effect. It doesn't matter if it is all down to 0% or up to 100%, the brightness stays the same. (Pressing ESC twice doesn't work either.)

I have tried several things but nothing has worked yet. Yes, I tried downgrading my videocard drivers, I completely reinstalled the game and deleted the user files folder in My Documents several times.

 

My question is: has anybody experienced this aswell and do you have a fix for it?

 

My specs if needed:

videocard is a Sapphire HD 6870

And this happens even when you're running the game under Compatibility mode?

I tried it with every single compatibility mode and none worked.

Another hit for Windows 8.
If the software controls don't work how about manually adjusting the monitor.

Are there really no other alternatives?

Reinstalled Windows 8 etc. but I finally managed to fix it.

After trying things for hours I installed the SweetFX mod which replaced a directx 9 .dll, which solved my problem.
