#15537 (Bug) Strange color profiles – some programs using color correction tilt color channels (Unsure, displaycal or argyll issue)
About a year ago chrome started to show interface and sites in weird colors. Most was pink and green. Tried to update drivers (GTX 1080), clean install of Chrome etc – nothing happened except 2 solutions: first was disable hardware acceleration (very bad solution) and second change internal chrome://flags/#force-color-profile to be forced as sRGB.
Yesterday I found that steam shows same weird colors in internal web-pages – discussions, groups etc and rechecked all parameters, played with them and “fixed” as i guessed. But today I installed Atom editor, run it and… the same problem. All color channels are shifted.
When i tried to understand what’s wrong, i found that all color channels are shifted.
For example, normal Atom colors and shifted. If I make sRGB windows default profile as default monitor profile than colors are unshifted, when i delete sRGB and ICC profile from i1+DisplayCal is default/active then color tilt happens:
Profiles created with “eye one display” + DisplayCal latest wersion (220.127.116.11 for that moment). All monitors/profiles shows identical issue. If default profile set to standard “%Windows%System32spooldriverscolorsRGB Color Space Profile.icm” and we start Atom (Chrome with disabled hardware acceleration and/or flag #force-color-profile is set to Default or steam when Chrome with that settings) – then all is OK, when default profile set to generated by DisplayCal/Argyll – then all is wrong. And i don’t know where the problem will comes out next time.
