Hi skwire

I didn't think that appeared to work.  If I put in 53% for example and then stop the programme (right-click Exit), when I re-start the programme it's at 50%.

Am I doing something wrong?

If I could change the brightness in increments of 1% 'on the fly' that would be awesome.

I must confess, I'm an ex-VB programmer (mostly 6.0, but some .NET when it was in Beta 1 and Beta 2) so I should tackle the project myself.  Life's a bit full-on since the daughter arrived and I don't seem to find much time.

If you make the mod for me I'd be very grateful (and donate too).  I must introduce this to the rest of the Achromat community.  There is probably a commercial product that does this, but as 'donationware' this is pretty neat.

My daughter has Achromatopsia.  It's a a rare recessive genetic condition (1 in 33,000) that renders her legally blind and with extreme light sensitivity.

My daughter is only 21 months, so she's a little young to start using a PC.  She's fascinated by the keyboard but found my 19" CRT far too bright.

I installed your program today and she could read all the letters and numbers.  I had notepad cranked up to 160 font-size and the darkness to 90%.

Is it possible to get a version that goes darker?  Believe it or not 90% is still very bright for my daughter.

Thank you for this wonderful programme.
