Hello thepseud0o and thank you for the report.
Does this issue occur in fullscreen, windowed mode or both?

Gamma does not work at all in windowed mode. So I get the image which would be displayed while playing in windowed mode.

Hello thepseud0o.
Do you use any third party program to take the screenshots? And if so, which one?

Hello thepseud0o.
We have tested taking screenshots with Steam, but unfortunately we could not reproduce the issue you have described. Can you try to turn off all programs running in background with exception of Steam and then try to take the screenshots again? Also, could you provide us with some of these screenshots?

These screenshots were taken with the highest gamma value possible and the lowest gamma.
On screen it looks like this:

Hello everyone.
Can you please post your video settings and dxdiag files here?

see my attached files above

Some questions which might help you identify this issue:

  • Why is my Steam-Overlay affected by the gamma-setting?
  • Why does gamma not work in windowed mode?

Thank you joe_mcentire.
Can you try to reset the gamma/brightness settings in AMD catalyst center to default, set the same settings to default in windows / on your screen and also set them to default in the game and let us know if the issue still persists?
