This game is unplayable on my LG TV

LG has a feature where the TV will auto-dim when the screen is dark. This means l can't see anything in the game when it's dark (which, from the demo is a lot). This has only been a minor nuisance before but this sucks.

is there no option in the TV settings menu that will override that feature?

Agreed. There should be an option in the tv's menu to turn the feature off. If not I'm sure you could just bump up the in-game brightness to compensate.

I would suggest buying a new tv, but you know, it's more tabooh then mentioning child¨¨ or ¨¨¨ on here and having a positive attitude towards doing such things.

My cousin has this problem on her TV and the solution she found was to turn off the "energy saver?" (can't remember what it's actually called) function. Like you, she had no option to turn off the auto-dimming but turning off the energy saving thing did it.

If you turn the gamma up on the game the TV might not feel the urge to change the auto brightness. I have an LG but it has an on/off in the menu on mine.

Turning the gamma up does work... but it kinda ruins the mood...

What the hell sense does it make for your TV to dim when the screen is already dark? I just don't understand the purpose of this feature.
