I tried to open up the test of my game, and for some reason, the game looks dimmer than usual.
However when I try to screen shot it, it looks fine for the picture.

two possibilities that I can think off:

1) you have added a screen tint somewhere, either through the event function or through a windows setting

2) optical illusion based on the surrounding, for example the same game (in a window) will appear differently if played on a dark desktop background as opposed to a light background to be seen around the window frame of the playtest.

The tint is visibly different between the screenshot and the game when compared side to side to me.
Like night and day.

then it looks like you have a tint active and the screenshot copied the picture data directly without the tint.
how did you do the screenshot?

I used the snipping tool app on my PC

Edit: I have found the issue and fixed it.
I had the "Play HDR Games" option turned on my display setting for my PC and when turning it off, it returned to normal.

Hi! I loe your desert NPCs for adding some variety. I've used them in a free game (The Snow Elf on Itch.io) and I'd love to use them in the new game I'm working on, which I hope to release commercially. I'd love your permission if I could have it!


So I figured out how to put words and pictures in the screen transition. It even wipes away from both the top and bottom. The possibilities are endless! :LZSexcite: I'm going to devise secret messages now for them because I'm a terrible wonderful person like that. :kaopride:
