    Hdr disabled by controller input


    I haven't tested this with any other games.

    I have Witcher 3 through gog.

    Whenever I run it, the hdr10 symbol appears in the top right corner.

    Using KB/M works just fine. But if the game detects any controller input (through my ps4 controller connected wired or over Bluetooth, or a steam controller) hdr is instantly disabled. It turns back on if I input through KB/M.

    The odd thing is that if hdr gets disabled by controller, the gamma slider in game doesn't work. Which is why I think it may be a windows 10 issue.


    Anyone have any ideas?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 HDR problems in full screen.

    Hello moderator

    1. Its all the games I own that don't support HDR10. Basically when I full screen on a non-HDR game, the screen goes black for a few seconds and HDR gets disabled and all the colors looked washed out (Like its in SDR)

    I took 2 screenshots, One is in window mode, the other is in full screen

    Windowed mode (HDR on) : Imgur

    Full screen mode (HDR off) : Imgur

    2. Yes SDR looks washed out. I want to play my games in full screen and in HDR. Playing in windowed mode is a nightmare

    3. I know because the monitor goes black for a few seconds and all the colors look washed out (As shown in the screenshots)

    Sadly the fixes did not work Hdr disabled by controller input :(

    I updated the GPU drivers via GeForce Experience app.

    My Monitor does support 4k HDR10

    I tried lower the resolution and the refresh rate but that did not work.

    Here is a video of my problem

    YouTube Link :

    Time Stamps :

    0:00 HDR mode is on everything looks fine (In the video, when it looks high contrast, that means HDR is on)

    0:35 I full screen the game. If you notice the high contrast is no longer there, the colors are washed out

    0:46 I disable full screen and HDR mode is back on

    *HDR looks high contrast, Ignore that, that's just the video itself.

    Im also using windows 10 64bit 1809
