Automatic Brightness Fix (No more adjusting brightness)

No more adjusting brightness each time you open your game
This is an automatic fix for those who need to adjust brightness each time they open the game, just do the following:

1. Create a shortcut for CoDMP.exe

2. Right click on the shourtcut, and choose properties

3. Go to "Shortcut" tab

4. Go to the end of the "Target" line, press space and paste the following: +toggleconsole +r_gamma 0.5 +wait 2 +r_gamma 1.0 +toggleconsole

So the "Target" line should look like that (ofc the game path will be different on each computer):
"C:\Program Files\Call of Duty\CoDMP.exe" +toggleconsole +r_gamma 0.5 +wait 2 +r_gamma 1.0 +toggleconsole

5. Press Apply, and then press OK

If you want the game to be darker or brighter, just change "r_gamma 1.0" to the value you desire, 1.1 for example for brighter game, or 0.9 for example for darker game.

Now each time you open the game it will automatically set the desired brightness for you.

Question: I set my game brightness to "r_gamma 1.0" and it works, but when I try to make the game even brighter by setting it to 1.1 and above, it dosent work, why is that?

Answer: To solve this, right click on your CoDMP.exe and choose properties, choose "Compatibility" tab and tick the option called "Run this program in compatibily mode for:" and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3)

Now you should be able to set brightness to a higher value than "r_gamma 1.0"


Personally I use: r_gamma 1.1
+toggleconsole +r_gamma 0.5 +wait 2 +r_gamma 1.1 +toggleconsole

You can also set the compatibility layer using a batch file, like this:

set __COMPAT_LAYER=WinXP
codmp.exe +set r_gamma 1.3
