[Feature request][Issue]: SDL_SetGamma: Gamma settings not working in Amnesia

Gamma settings are not working in Amnesia: The Dark Descent.


Thread in steam for linux discussion thread:



There is a link to explanation from Frictional Games forums in last post:



Inability to set gamma on ATI cards or gamma too high on ATI cards

It seems the ATI drivers are not supporting the X method used to set the gamma that is used by SDL_SetGamma, a workaround is to use the xgamma utility that should be available with your distribution to adjust the gamma.


Thank to devs for their hard work.
