Your screen is darker than it should be? The Youtube videos are lighter than it should be?

Have you tried patching it with other FF roms? It might be that the rom you're patching it with is actually messed up...
Who will quote me next?

I replied to him/her in a PM, but figure maybe other people would find what I said useful...

I hacked the color emphasis for everything but the overworld so as to make things darker. If the videos watched were made with a less accurate emulator that doesn't emulate PPU emphasis properly, it would look quite a bit brighter.

It may also be that the custom palette (NEStopia's) that I included with the patch isn't being used. All the DXOII videos I myself did use it.
