    Came back to the game after a few months break. And the game looks terrible after the Unreal engine update. Everything is way to over bright. All the fish looks like they have some sickness and all the lakes the water looks terrible. At Digger Lakes it looks like you are fishing in milk and the rest looks plain dirty. Things went badly backwards with the graphics. :(

    This was not an issue before the Unreal engine update. Before that update the game looked fine.

    I have googled for maybe a possible known issue in general with the card , and I came across this:

    https://pcmonitors.info/articles/correcting-hdmi-colour-on-nvidia-and-amd-gpus/

    I do use HDMI as my connection to monitor , and the symptoms caused by that problem sounds a lot like mine. Will check my Nvidia range setting tonight , test the fix mentioned there to switch to full range. And report back if there is a difference

    Can you provide us with a screenshot on how it looks before you try the solution at the link provided please?

    We will be interested to see the results when you have tried it.

    Ok I tried the above fix. It added a lot more colour , but the water ain't better. Still looks like milk at Digger lakes.

    And to make things worse , after I took the screenshots and exited the game , I loaded up again to check how the other lakes look and now my character with everything is GONE !!!! Just takes me to the create character screen !! This game sucks. I love this game but all the issues are getting to much now. All the time spend on that character gone for no reason !!!!

    Attached is screenshots of the Digger lakes milk

    Did your game crash when you exited it?

    Check in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fishing\FishingGame\Saved\Logs and see if the folder created around the time you lost your profile has a UE4 minidump. If it does please send this along with your reply to your Kayako ticket.

    There is no saved or logs folder. Created a ticket , but don't have much hope.

    Checked the water out on Xbox , looks just as terrible. Milk at Digger. So it's not a pc thing , but this game.

    RE my character. I restored the whole c:\users\username\appdata\local\fishinggame folder (which contains a saves folder) from my backups from yesterday. That didn't even help. All data gone. Is there somewhere else where the character data is located that I can check if I have it in my backups ?

    I'm on Xbox, and was playing this weekend's tournament on Digger Lakes, when my wife walked by and asked "Is that ice fishing?".

    Hopefully this will be addressed in a future update. Water is bluish-white on XB1. St. John also looks a little too light-blue to be realistic, imo. I'm in US, so my apologies if that's how the water really looks.

    It's not supposed to look like that and it never did. It went white like that after the Unreal engine update few months ago.

    The development team have been made aware of this and will be making changes to the water. At the moment I can't say if it will be in the next update or one after that.
