Maps too dark - A Question for Counter-Strike 1.6

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.
Hi

I am trying to play cs 1.6 on a surface pro 3.
But many of the maps have areas that are way to dark.
eg the tunnel in cs_estate is completaly dark.
I have tried using an external gamma and brigtness software, and it works, but then bright areas are way to bright.

Does any one know a fix for this?

    May I know which cs_estate? Please link.

    Have you tried changing the game's gamma and brightness in the Options > Video ?

    What are your current Graphic settings (Renderer, in-game brightness/gamma etc..). Does using the flashlight help?

    I'm not quite sure about what you were expecting, but the sewerage tunnel in cs_estate was always pitch black, with hints of lights here and there. 

    CS 1.6 maps, some are brightly lit (Like both dust maps) or are just too dark, especially for a person who has just came off from playing Source or Condition Zero. 

    If that's a problem with your Surface Pro, please make sure to disable the dreaded "adaptive brightness" feature. You'll find quite a handful of tutorials online on how to do so.

    Never used or own a Surface Pro. Maybe the device brightness is too low?
