If brightness is equal "-1", the mode of inversion of the image is automatically started.
If brightness is equal "-2", the mode of change of dark and light tones of the image is automatically started.

Possible problems:
1. Some programs use Overlay whenever possible, for example - Windows Media Player.
You can decide this problem, having started  Magical Glass before these programs.
2. Some videocards or the driver, can not support DirectX9. In this case try to update the driver on a site of the manufacturer.
