I’ve been using HDR in Windows 10 for my games for over 2 years now… what’s different about this?

It’s no different, And HDR in MSFS sucks. Horrendously bright with under saturated colours. I use an Asus ROG PG43U in 4k- Gsync

Are you sure you’re setting it up properly? You need to have Windows setting to turn on HDR. Then turn on the HDR in the sim. If only one of them is on while the other is off, that’s where you get the over exposure and undersaturated colours.

Either have both On, or both off. They both need to match to be able to see it properly.

And I’m using a Sony X90F 4K HDR TV

Yes both on. W10 under advanced display properties and also in the sim. But it sucks IMO…

Ahh okay. All I know is that the geforce experience can’t do live broadcast in HDR mode, so I had to turn it off all the time. Which is an even more shame, for your standards. Hahaha.

Strange thing is i use HDR in Cyberpunk and it’s freaking amazing, So either my monitor hates MSFS or MSFS HDR is not up to the job yet?

Nah, not really. I did play Cyberpunk in HDR as well, and I did notice some difference. But for my taste I find the Cyberpunk HDR is “oversaturated”. Like it’s too vivid that I get a headache after playing for a few hours. The MSFS is a bit more on the good enough look while being comfortable.

Maybe it’s because Cyberpunk has a slider setting for the HDR stuff, while MSFS doesn’t. It just set that way. I don’t think it’s the monitor though. That’s just how these two games have their HDR coded, I guess.
