Does anyone else find it a little to dark during the night in Red Dead Redemption?

I know the game is trying to be as realistic as possible, but I can barely see where I'm going at night. The brightness setting in options helps but it just seems to make the daytime look to bright. I am playing it on a good quality HD TV (Sony Bravia) so it's nothing to do with the TV.

Yeah, but I'll normally just make him have a sleep until it's light.

Hmm I've not had any problems with the brightness/darkness. If anything it doesn't seem to get as dark at night in the game as it would in reality in my opinion (not that I'm complaining), nor is it ever too bright for me either. I play it on a small (I forget the exact dimension) HD LG, so it's nothing special really.

The only thing I can suggest is to play it in a dark room, and make sure there's no light shining on your TV which may cause reflection and reduce the quality of the picture you're seeing.

hi Thomas
I totaly agree with you sometimes its too dark at night you just can't see anything
it was worse for me then it was raining just could not see anything
and i know its not the tv because i have never had a problem like this before
still a fantastic game though

It depends on which part of the cycle the moon is. When it's a full moon, it's almost like daylight - virtually no moon = very dark.

I think the most sensible option would be to adjust the brightness settings on your TV, or change them in the game options. I've got a relatively old Samsung LCD, and if it's too dark I just change the "HDMI black level". Does the job.

this is also a major problem for me. Either you save the game around 23.00 ish (wake up seven hours alter) - or turn the brightness right up.

I agree ..and did you notice the dust is too dusty, the light is just too light sometimes and the rain is too wet; not forgetting that the horses are a bit more horsey than I'd like tbh.

It's supposed to be dark at night because it WAS dark at night back then.....except when the moon is full and you get shadows almost as though it was daylight.
What's the point of being an amazingly accurate and atmospheric recreation of the early 20th Century West and then making the night-time unrealisticly bright so it's easier for you to see?.

Agreed, sometimes Ive had no problem at night, usually when the in-game moon is quite bright, but there have been a few times when its been very dark indeed.
But its never been something that couldnt be dealt with by changing the brightness settings.
