My screen gets dark when I tab out!

Post by Melegim on Fri 16 Aug 2013, 20:45

Hi! 
When I play The sims 3 and tab out, to chat on facebook or whatever, my game is all dark when I get back in. No matter how high my brightness is, it's very dark and it's very annoying! I've heard that one solution is playing in window mode but I don't like that at all so that's not an option..
Does anyone have an idea how to fix it? Smile

Hello,

How long did you wait - for the screen to get normal again ? Sometimes, it can take a little while. By the way, this "phenomenon" has nothing to do with any graphics setttings like brightness, etc. Wink

I have to restart the game to make it normal again, once I played like that for one hour or two.. 
Yeah I've noticed that too haha. But better get it clear, then nobody needs to ask if I have low brightness or something haha. 
But do you mean it should get back to normal after a while? Smile

Yes, when I play it does get normal after a while...

If that doesn't happen in your game though, I'm not sure what you could do then; maybe you could go into the options menu (in the Sims 3) and lower your graphics settings a bit. Other than that: there's no reason to tab out while playing The Sims (3), unless you are waiting for the game to load at the beginning. Razz  Of course, this is just my humble opinion.
