Screen brightness problem
So whenever I play, the screen starts at the normal brightness but then gets darker and darker until I can barely see anything. Is there a fix for this?

Additionally if I go idle or die and watch someone else it resets it to being the normal brightness for a bit before going back to becoming darker and darker.

I also same issue with you, since laptop screen no function to adjust, so this clearly game HDR problem I assume. Play as Infected, normal brightness, once play Survivor, it become dark when see bright thing, so this HDR problem.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

i dont think its a hdr problem. i saw this on a mod server. if not, set the noteboook brightness to the max(if its a notebook). also, go for the catalyst software(if its an amd gpu) and set the anisotrophic filtering to be application controlled. try in single player if it still with bug.

Kevin... I had no idea to fix,
I happen when I play versus, and in survivor play, slowly getting darker, I check brightness by default 2.5 and text can see, it like normal.

When switched to Infected play, the brightness back to normal.

If thinking the brightness problem, but the HUD not getting dark, the Overlay normal brightness.

that why I think this HDR problem, when see Bright light move fast to Dark place, usually it change light level, similar to Human Eye.

I ended up fixing it by updating my graphic card drivers. Hope it works for you guys!

This didn't help me, reinstalling didn't help me. It seems to get brighter when i go idle and then gets dark again when i take control.
