After a driver update a few months ago The Sims 3 became too bright to play when set to 1920x1080p or other 16:9 resolutions, and subsequent updates have not fixed the issue.
I play The Sims 3 with graphics set to maximum, even with all expansion/stuff packs installed I've never had any issues with graphics or performance.
It is not a monitor issue as everything else is at normal brightness when minimized and screenshots taken with the in-game camera (c key) are also normal. There is also no way to change the
brightness in-game as The Sims 3 does not have gamma/brightness settings.
My System Specs are:
AMD FX 8350 Eight-Core Processor
32.0 GB of RAM
Winodws 10 Pro 64-bit OS
AMD Radeon R9 390 Series GPU
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
