• BZFlag brightness adjustment not working

    I am new to Antergos and have to say, GREAT DISTRO thus far!
    So, when I go into the game and attempt to set brightness level setting, it does nothing. I’ve been on other distros where brightness setting works and other distros don’t but, the distors that don’t work I can edit the config.cfg file and manually set the gamma (brightness level) and all is good. With Antergos I edit the config.cfg file but it doesn’t change the brightness in the game.

    Any help would be appreciated!

  • Hi,

    We need more info ;)

    Which graphics card are you using? And which driver? Are you running bzflag in a wayland or in a xorg session?

  • Hi,

    Which driver are you using? Nouveau or nvidia? (if you don’t know, just put the output of lsmod|grep nouveau).

  • @karasu

    The spec’s in my last post specified the driver but I am using nvidia.

    [[email protected] ~]$ lsmod|grep nvidia
    nvidia_drm             49152  2
    nvidia_modeset        794624  3 nvidia_drm
    nvidia              12197888  41 nvidia_modeset
    drm_kms_helper        126976  1 nvidia_drm
    drm                   294912  5 nvidia_drm,drm_kms_helper

    Yep, you’re right, sorry.

    Why do you use nvidia? It’s nouveau not working for you?

  • @karasu
    nouveau works but it doesn’t have the 3d acceleration support I need for gaming. NVidia is much better and system runs better with it.

  • Hi,

    I’m using nouveau, and brightness works as it should.

    You’ll find out that some games work better with the nvidia driver, and some others with nouveau.

    I’m not saying you should use nouveau, just that maybe this specific issue is due to the nvidia’s driver version.

    I’m sorry I can’t help you more.
