do you have "use stencil buffer" checked in il2 setup?

It's possible that OpenGL rendering is switched off or your graphics card is not OpenGL compatible.

Hmmm... Did you try to modify the contrast curve on your graphic card...?

On Nvidia:
right click the icon in the task bar, choose color correction, goto "Color Profile" and select "Advanced mode". The default line is a linear trend, but this may not be what you want.

If you make the curve first rise sharply and then more slowly, then contrast in the dark colors is enhanced resulting in more details. Similarly, if you want to see more details in the "whites" then make sure that the last part of the curve rises a bit more sharply than usual.

You can do this for all colors, but also for individual colors, changing the balance a little.

Hope this helps!

I had the same problem with my evga 7800gt 256 sli.Quick fix is to change from perfect mode to excellent.I finally got perfect mode working, how I am not sure.I was trying different card settings in the setup.exe.I think when I tried maximum settings ran the program, quit then went back to my noramal video card settings the problem disappeared.
