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.

Made a surprising amount of progress in these past two days. Really helps when parallax mapping breaks limitation and allowing me to be creative and make maps that match my vision.
Let's promote our amazing artists in RPG Maker community! I posted right now about my game Phil Alone on Twitter and I decided to thanks Lime Zu, the amazing artist that did all the pixel assets for my game!
I just realised that the reason behind me not being able to make a game may be the lack of my original resources. I just dont like the look of MV faces and sprites, lol. Guess I will have make my own art.
I'm posting a commission art soon! :kaoswt2:
So here's a fun/tragic fact about me: I have an awful memory. But to be correct, I have memory "leaks". My memory is actually amazing, my issue is I can't keep memories for long, in fact, I once forgot my name. :kaoswt2:
