I play l4d and its great, but it gets very dark to where i can't see a thing. Its just the main game though, the menu runs great and the hud showing the survivors and infected is awesome but the actual game just gets dark when i play. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

You should be able to turn up the brightness in the video options, but its odd that it is only dark for you in game

I tried that already, it helps alittle but it messes up the graphics and it still gets dark with that. Turning up the brightness for me only just lets me see things close up. Its actually better to play without turning up the brightness

Hmm thats odd.  What are you system specs and what are you video options set to?

All I really need is your video card and what os you are running (Mac or Linux), you video card and your cpu.

On a mac you should be able to find that out by clicking on the apple then about this mac

On Linux "uname -a" and "grep Driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf" should do it.

Im not very good with macs so I don't know if that will show video card type or not

 Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
 Number Of Processors: 1
 Total Number Of Cores: 2
 L2 Cache: 6 MB
 Memory: 3 GB
 Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

Ya your with your serial number and apple.com I found found out your system info.  You have an ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT with 128MB of GDDR3 memory video card.

From what I know L4D should be running great on your mac. I would open a support ticket about it or email info@crossover.codeweavers.com
Include your Processor Name/Speed, Memory,and Video card info and they should be able to help you out.

My only other idea is to try out some of the things in the Tips and Tricks section (ignore the SDK one)
