    There is some sort of annoying glow around the text on all my lcd screens now - I don't know when this happened, I haven't played for a couple of weeks.

    It makes the text on the screen harder to read at distance. Does anyone know how to get rid of it ? The same glow is around other lights too, but they don't bother me.

    Does anyone know how to turn the glow down/off ?? I can't see anything to help in graphics settings.

    If in Creative, F12 to open developer menu, Render Tab, Post Process Bloom, reduce emissivity to 0.800-ish. Or whatever you're happy with. You'll have to redo it every time you load the game.

    Otherwise use a skybox mod that reduces bloom.

    I think there is a way to edit cfg files to make that setting permanent.

    Only till the next time they alter something in the environment files in a patch or you verify the install through steam. Might as well use the mod if you're looking for permanence.

    I found the setting in the developer menu, but I can't shut the menu down afterwards.

    When I load into my survival game after I have set the emissivity the developer menu is still there and seems to prevent the world from fully loading, locking up the game.

    I need to shut down the menu in creative after setting the emissivity - how do I do that ?

    You have to uncheck the options otherwise they stay around even with the menu itself closed.

    It's simply an artefact of the new renderer. I'm fairly sure it's not intended, and even if it is, it needs adjustment...

    If you're not immediately in front of the LCD panel, the text gets completely blurred out. I hope they resolve this soon.

    Agreed, it's absolutely terrible.

    The emissivity fix works, its just that there is no key that I can find that shuts down the developer menu after I have set it.

    Then when I load my survival game, the dev menu is still present and the game hangs.

    Of course I agree, it would be best if the emissivity is set to a more reasonable level in the first place.

    You must switch the menu off the same way you switched it on.
