Running ezQuake on 10.6.5, the startup colors are very dark. If I try to change gamma or contrast to compensate, suddenly everything looks overbright like contrast is on full. Gamma also will not go lower then 1.0. The colors basically make the game unplayable.

Macbook Pro 15" 2.8 Intel Core 2 Duo with NVIDIA GeForce 9600M and 9400M

    Check if you are using too high a refresh rate for your monitor, that usually gives the effect you are experiencing.

    The command is vid_displayfrequency and should not be higher than 60 or 75 depending on your monitor.

    You need vid_restart for changes to take effect
