Q8FN brightness downgrade in Game Mode with FW 1290.4

Updated my Q8FN to firmware 1290.4 yesterday, immediately noticed downgraded brightness and color vibrancy in Game Mode. 

Local Dimming has also been messed up again in Game Mode, even though it worked ok in the previous 2 updates. 

Picture quality is just worse overall. 
There are other users on the EU Samsung forum that have noticed the same thing.

 

PLEASE FIX THE GAME MODE BACK TO EXACTLY AS IT WAS IN FW 1270!!

Previous settings (in Game Mode, non HDR) Xbox one x, PS4 Pro, Switch 

backlight-30

brightness-0

Local Dimming-High


now I have to use:

backlight-45

brightness  (-2) to avoid washed out image

local dimming -high

 

 I don't expect a "solution", just stating that the new FW 1290.4 has nerfed the PQ. Many other people are complaining about this on other forums right now also

+1, same issue on my q8fn.  Local dimming is completely broken in game mode.  It blooms like nothing I have ever seen, and brightness is reduced.

This update has ruined Game Mode. I am done with Samsung. Their FW updates fix 1 thing, but then always break 2 more... and in this case a complete degradation of picture quality
