As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our

Any screenshot please!

If you installed to a long folder name structure P3Dv4 maybe can’t load the texture as it is maxed by the sim to 256 characters.

The best place to start is with Monitor Calibration.  I recommend a freeware tool called Calibrize.


After you are sure that your monitor is correctly calibrated most darkness related issues will be resolved.

All this should be in connection with the other suggestions such as a properly calibrated monitor using Dave's advice.
