    Enclave is an older 3rd person view hack-n-slash game where you progress through small linear maps. Fight Orcs, Goblins, theifs and other monsters. The story is simple, the quests are linear, its a fun button masher for quick gaming satisfaction.

    enclave25.png

    Select Textures
    Adjust world and character textures
    Increase or decrease anisotrophy
    enclave26.png

    Rule of thumb:
    High Setting = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low Setting = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Enclave ran extremely well since it is a directx 9 game from GOG.com
    I cranked everything to high and it supported high resolutions.
    I was impressed with the texture quality and the lighting for such an old game.
    Enclave should run on any laptop and maybe even some netbooks.

    Looks like the command xgamma will work for you, but where to enter it?
    Code:
    xgamma -g .5
    Maybe in Miscellaneous Tab you can run this code in the commands box?
    I would have to try it myself when I get home from work.
    At least try it with the command line....
    .5 will darken the screen a bit and 1 will set back to default.

    In PlayOnLinux
    1. Go to Configure
    2. Select Game (left side)
    3. Click Miscellaneous Tab
    4. Textbox at the bottom
    5. Enter: xgamma -g .5
    6. Close Configure
    7. Run Enclave
