    Hi all,
    I compiled the r0.0.8 version on my Redhat 7.2 system (which has a 3dfx 
    voodoo banshee). Everything works as advertised, except the screen is 
    _very_ low contrast and dark. Does anybody have an idea of how to up the 
    gamma or some such thing?

This is the script I use to lauch Q2. Play around with the gamma setting
till it looks right for you.

xgamma -gamma 1.7
cd /usr/local/games/quake2
./sdlquake2 +set vid_ref sdlgl +exec bod.cfg +disconnect
xgamma -gamma 1.0
exit 0
