Possible to remove/change damage overlay?

When you take damage, the edges of your screen go red. For me, my entire screen becomes almost a solid red to the point where I'm completely blind when damaged - especially from flintlocks. You can imagine how difficult it is to play the game like this where not only are you damaged, but you are blinded mid-combat which can prove fatal if your oponent lands multiple hits while in close proximity.

Is it possible to disable this in the console? Do I have to lower a graphics setting? Can I somehow change the texture?

    i dont think so,but its a bit fair,because everyone has it,uneless ur screen resolution is very small or your brightness too low,if thats the case,turn them both up,then try to use color correction then get hit,turn it off then get hit again,see whats the best for you,this is a bit the same like the grail,it makes u 60%blind on temple and 30% on desertruin,will both be fixed(?) in the next update,wich will run the orange box.

    I don't think everyone has it. I think its a problem with the settings.

    If I get hit in a dark place like the indoor area with the stairway before the Viking -> Pirate tunnel or inside Hub Jub on Island, my screen turns a really dark red for about 2 seconds. That doesn't sound like a lot until you're in the middle of a fight, in which case 2 seconds of not being able to see anything feels like 5 minutes.

    Mayday, I had this problem, dunno how I fix'd. But I suggested taking this from 2.3 and they said this has already been looked. So expect it in 2.3.

    I think I fix'd it with my new monitor (higher resolution 1280x1024 -> 1920x1080)

    EDIT: sorry, I was contradicting myself

    I know it's nothing to do with my monitor, colour correction settings, or brightness.

    Also not only is the damage overlay more intense, but every overlay is. The grail enlightment overlay and the berserker rage overlay are both intense as well (not nearly as much - I can still easily see what's going on).

    My graphics card broke and I put in a different one so it could possibly just be how it renders these overlays. It didn't happen before with my nVidia card but it does with the ATI one I have installed right now.

    Is there any other way I can modify/change the damage overlay other than setting everything to low?

    Thats probably the cause then.

    I use an ATI and as stated before I have the same problems.
