Reflections outrageously bright

Beginning a couple days ago, andything that reflects on gmod does it about 100x brighter. I tried changing video settings, updating my cideo card drivers, uninstalling my most recent addons, and reinstalling gmod. Nothing is helping. Any idea what could be wrong? Picture below to show how bad it is.

Looks like a bloom issue. I forgot the exact console command but I think it’s mat_bloom or something like that.

pp_bloom

mat_fullbright

None of those seemed to help :confused:

Does anyone else have an idea how to fix this?

Try this. Go to singleplayer, turn Bloom on and set Multiply Amount to 0.

That fixed it! thanks a ton. I don’t know how it got messed up in the first place.
