color profil and nglide: is it posstible to add an option?

Postby willow31 » Sat Nov 04, 2017 3:34 pm

When I use nglide, icc color profiles is not use in fulscreen mode. Is it possible to add an option to keep color profile in fullscreen mode?

I don't know...

Preserving color profiles in DX9.0 means no gamma correction. This will make some games too dark to play, example here (first screen shows TR1 without gamma correction, the second how the game supposed to look like - with gamma).

Gamma correction is not a problem because gamma is corrected with color profile.

Dgvoodoo 2 have this option and it's works very well. Under xp, there was software to force color profil and it worked very well.

It is a problem, you will get inaccurate image if you ignore gamma curve set by a game (icc profile has a different curve and you need to take both into account).

After your second post I did some research I found it is possible to retrieve gamma ramp of the device outside DX9.

With this post I can confirm the next nGlide version will be keeping ICC profiles, all automatically without any additional settings in nGlide configurator.
