HDR Not Working in full screen mode

Postby walterg74 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 11:06 pm

Hello,

I have an issue with HDR.

I use an HDR capable display, but when using P3D in full screen mode, HDR is not being used.

If I ALT-ENTER to Window mode, the HDR indicator on my display appears, and HDR is on again. ALT-ENTER back to full screen and it-s gone.

Strangely, if in full screen I go to setting, or press ESC, when menus appear, HDR gets activated again....

What's going on?

Hello,

I have similar issues in that P3D v4.5 is not picking up HDR correctly. For me it doesn't even make a difference if I'm in full-screen mode or windowed. It springs back and forth between HDR and non-HDR, so I ended up just disabling HDR in Windows.

Are we sure that P3D v4.5 is actually a native HDR application? The HDR settings within the application IMHO have nothing to do with the app's actual HDR display capabilities?

Thanks,

Jan

I stand corrected. I double-checked, and indeed when in Window mode HDR stays on consistently. Only in Full-Screen mode it constantly switches back and forth between SDR and HDR. Would indeed be nice to get it fixed.

As for hardware: I use a GTX 1080Ti in G-SYNC mode on an Acer Predator X27 HDR 4k monitor.

I have same issues with similar hardware (monitor LG 27GL850-B) with GTX 1080Ti checked with and without G-SYNC enabled. I had to turn off HDR from Windows in order to make P3D v4.5 usable.

We seem to be in such a niche of a niche market that no one can be even remotely bothered with our trouble :).
