I am migrating to a new laptop, on which I have installed FS2004 and FSX. In both sims, the aircraft (when viewed from spot plane etc.) appear grey / dull, even in full sunlight.
In the start-up screen, the aircraft appears OK initially, then if I change anything, it suddenly dulls down.
Here is a comparison screenshot of my old machine and new machine, same location, same weather. Newer machine aircraft not nearly as bright as the old one (the scenery seems to be the same in both cases).
Here's a shot comparing the FS2004 loading screen as it comes up at first, then after switching aircraft. The first case proves that my machine will display the plane "bright", but it fails to do so in the sim itself, and FSX is the same.
Anyone know what's going wrong here?
Thanks for your tips,
