Version 3.2.2 (The Forgotten Update)
This update sucked
Minor bug fixes (detailed below). If you were one of the few who nabbed v3.2 in the short time it was up you won't get a notification for this update so I'm telling you to grab it now!
Version 3.2 (The Usability Update)
Completely redesigned reset key
- Much smarter now (predicts intentions)
- Press to reset to 0 and back to default gamma
- If sneaking brightness will reset to max instead of default gamma
- Now works for all possible defaultGamma values
- No longer fails to reset at certain values (small bug with negative defaultGamma, will be fixed in future update)
- New retracting animation when hiding indicator
- Temporarily pushes indicator out of view
- Sneak and press to toggle auto-hide (auto retracts indicator)
- Brightness limits have also now been permanently restored
- Hold down the Brighten/Darken keys long enough and increment value will jump
- ↑ Note: I broke this in a last minute change in v3.2. Version 3.2.1 fixes this and an update check screw up. Sorry!
- No more having to delete the file every update
- Removed increment, increment_sneak, textPosX, textPosY, setLimits & hideIndicator
- Added autoHide (automatically retracts indicator)
- ↑ Replaces old hideIndicator option in config
- Configuration will be moved from file to in-game in a future update! This is preparation.
- Besides the orange of course, that defines Gammabright!
- If intruding just retract/restore it with the hide indicator key
Lots of other bug fixes and changes
THIS WAS A BIG UPDATE!
- Download LiteLoader and Gammabright for your respective Minecraft version
- Run the LiteLoader installer (if wanting to run w/ Forge, make sure to extend from existing Forge profile)
- Close the installer and run the Minecraft launcher
- Select the new LiteLoader profile (if it's not already selected) from the bottom left corner
- Run the game. If you see the small LiteLoader tab on the right side of the main menu you're half way there!
- Close Minecraft and navigate to your .minecraft folder (if you don't know where this is find it)
- Drag and drop your Gammabright LiteMod (should have the extension ".litemod"!) into the "mods" folder
- Run the game again and Gammabright should be activated! (see Gammabright in the LiteLoader tab?)
- Congratulations! You've installed Gammabright. Now see below to know how to use it!
How to Control Gammabright
Gammabright is controlled using the G key and the arrow keys. Below is a description of what each key does.
- Press the G key to enable/disable Gammabright - This key can be changed like any other keybinding through the "Controls" screen
- Press the down arrow key to reset the brightness between 0% and the default - If holding the sneak key at same time brightness will always jump to 1500% (Maximum Brightness)
- Press the right arrow key to increase the brightness by 10% per tick - TIP! If held long enough, brightness increment will double for quicker navigation
- Press the left arrow key to decrease the brightness by 10% per tick - TIP! If held long enough, brightness increment will double for quicker navigation
- Press the up arrow key to hide the indicator. Press again to show - If holding sneak key Gammabright will enter auto-hide mode (see Configuration below for details)
Changing Gammabright's configuration options is simple and quick! Here's a list of the currently available options:
- defaultGamma (default - 15.0): The brightness value Gammabright sets to when first enabled. You can change this to any value from 15.0 (1500%) all the way down to -7.5 (-750%) and your brightness will adapt accordingly. ---
- hangTimeOn (default - 1500): This value represents the amount of time the indicator stays visible before retracting off the screen when autoHide mode is enabled (see below). ---
- hangTimeOff (default - 750): Similar to hangTimeOn, this value represents the amount of time the "Gammabright: OFF" text stays visible after disabling Gammabright. Set this to 0 to remove this feature. ---
- autoHide (default - false): Normally when Gammabright is enabled the indicator stays on-screen until the mod is disabled again. Enable autoHide to automatically hide the indicator after a predefined time (hangTimeOn). ---
- autoEnable (default - false): When autoEnable is set to true Gammabright will enable itself on every world load without the need for you to toggle it. This can also be paired with autoHide if you'd like Gammabright to just do its thing and get out! ---
- checkUpdate (default - true): If the update notifier is bothering you or if something has gotten screwed up on my end you can set this to false to stop the Gammabright update message from appearing.
A: Some resource packs break Gammabright and others do not. The reason some do is because they modify the default lightmap that Minecraft uses (via OptiFine or MCPatcher). This lightmap is what Gammabright is based on. To get Gammabright working again with your resource pack, open up your resource pack and navigate to the following path "assets\minecraft\mcpatcher\lightmap". Once in the lightmap folder you should find a file named world0.png. Delete this and you will be good to go! As for shaders, the shader mod core completely breaks Gammabright, so sorry about that!
Q: Gammabright isn't loading for me.
A: First make sure you downloaded the correct version of Gammabright for your version of Minecraft, as well as the correct LiteLoader version. Make sure you have the Gammabright .litemod file in your "mods" folder as well. If the problem persists, leave a comment, let me know what's up.
Q: Can I overhaul my brightness without Gammabright?
A: Why yes you can! However, it's not as simple as using Gammabright (which is why I made it). To do so, open up the "options.txt" or just "options" file inside your .minecraft folder and change the number on the "gamma:" line to your desired value (15.0 is Gammabright's default - 1500%). This is exactly where Gammabright does its magic! Just remember though that if you change your brightness in-game you'll have to do this all over again! You may also randomly lose your brightness every once in a while, Gammabright creates a backup to prevent this.
Q: Can I get banned for using this mod?
A: Depends on the server. However, Gammabright is one of few mods many server admins allow due to its effects being achievable through a regular "vanilla" client (see question above). The choice however, like with any other mod, is up to you! To stay on the safe side, check with your server admin before using on your server.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Safer than your mom.
- Move configuration file to an in-game GUI
- What else?
