|i had been playing on Windows xp for a long time and i had no problems with video brightness until i had changed over to Windows 7. i'd looked everywhere and couldnt figure it out how to fix it. some suggested plenty of configuration and screen monitor brightness. well no can do to all those suggestions. thx anyhoos!|

edit your q3config.cfg or pull down your console and type these configurations in. and this did the trick, and wella! lord and behold there was light.
