Lighting Issue
I used to play this game on my PC very often, and recently got a new one. When I installed the game and played it, the lighting was, well... not the way I remember it. If I can recall, the lighting in the game is supposed to be vibrant and actually dim and whatnot, especially around fire and actual lights. Instead, I found myself in not a colorless, but VERY dull world (my Series EV was kind of dulled out). I'm not sure what kind of issue is, but if need-be, I will gladly put up screenshots, but would prefer not to have to if anyone knows the issue. Is is a file that is messed up? Please refrain from recommending a reinstall as I have already done so, and found no luck. I am having trouble seeing when the lighting is like this so please help. Thanks.

It could be your visual configuration. If you can, post a screenshot so we can see what you are seeing.

when you re installed the game, it probably set the graphics quality to Low. when you launch dungeon defenders, dont press Play when the little window pops up. go to Configure and look for the graphics settings. if its on low, change it back to high

You said new PC. So can you tell us what graphics card you had before and what you have now?
It could be a matter of the game detecting the new one as less capable and using lower settings for it (apart from some drivers outright cheating and taking visual shortcuts).

Apart from setting graphics quality to High, also set postprocessing On. If that does not solve it, post screenshots and we can maybe find some ini-file changes for you.

Have you tried to brighten your screen on pc - if laptop probably the" fn" key or Shift and f4 or f5 or something like that. they lighten and darken your screen.
