    Creators update- games ignore nvidia ctrl panel color profile


    Hey,

    Need help with this asap because I am running out of ideas.

    I am manually adjusting colors with nvidia control panel since stock colors on TN panels suck.

    Since creators update, when I run fullscreen game, my colors revert to stock ones and even my desktop picks
    it up when I exit or alt tab. I can only fix it with changing resolution or something signal related back and forth or with restarting pc.

    Desktop and everything is fine. It only happens when I run games in fullscreen.

    Things I've tried:



    • 3 times reinstalled creators update including clean install once !
    • Sfc/scannow, dism scanhealth/checkhealth show no errors
    • Disk cleanup
    • Different drivers, currently on latest one.
    • Night mode on/off
    • Game mode on/off
    • Unpluging monitor
    • removing profiles in color management from display properties




    I am using xl2411 zowie TN panel 144 hz connected with Dual Dvi.
    Single monitor.


    Edit: I believe that source of the problem is a new feature which you can access by right clicking any exe, properties-compatibility tab and there is tick box called "Disable Fullscreen Optimizations globally".
    Enabling it resolves some of the problems and SOME games tends to pick up the color at start but they still (all of them) break on alt tab.


    Update: Windows insiders build 16199

    • We fixed an issue resulting in color profiles being ignored after launching certain fullscreen games.



    It would be nice if people on insiders can confirm that this problem is 100 % fixed.

    The Windows display profile usually only works in borderless window mode. Games that use full screen exclusive mode usually reset the gamma ramp. Windows would restore the gamma ramp when you quit the game. Some games like Dota 2 have a "-nogammaramp" launch parameter which use the display profile even in fullscreen exclusive mode.

    With the Creators update, I noticed two things changed. Windows does not restore the gamma ramp after quitting a fullscreen exclusive mode game. Thus the gamma ramp is broken on both the desktop as well as in other games launched afterwards. The "-nogammaramp" parameter no longer works in Dota 2.

    Same here and it's very frustrating. My monitor gamma gets reset after exitting most of my games.

    There is a workaround using DisplayCAL Profile Loader. You need to get the Windows profile converted to work with DisplayCAL though.

    For some weird reason, disabling write combining (USWC) did the trick for me. Now ICC profiles are fine after exitting games.

    That's probably preventing the gamma table from being written in GPU memory somehow. It will probably cause other problems and a performance hit when writing to GPU memory.

    same here , nvidia colors going back to default.
    GTX 780's
    latest nvidia driver v382.05.

    KB4016240 did something to fullscreen apps

    uninstall or downloading package won't work to fix anything.
    they need to send another fix for it is my guess.
    i hope they are aware they messed up things.

    hey,

    i went back to Anniversary to see if i can spot an error with new drivers or components.
    the new drivers seem to work fine on Anniversary.

    so my guess is , nvidia is not the problem.
    then i started investigating the directx components.

    in creators update in both system 32 and syswow64 there is a new D3DSCache.dll
    for the shader cache.

    i was wondering if any of you could try a game that resets the colors .
    and then with Shader Cache OFF in the nvidia menu. or driver inspector menu.
    for that game or global settings.
    plz let me know if that did anything, would safe me a lot of work going back to creators update for nothing.

    edit:
    also that KB fix tries to swap directx 12 components .
    KB4016240 and the replacement update KB4016871

    edit 2:
    nevermind , didn't work.
    i stay on Anniversary for now.
    i think it is more stable too.
