I don't know if this was always like that in Arma2, as i never used a NVG before in Arma2, but in Arma1 it was the case and i think its realitic, right?

Switching NVGs on or off does not trigger any HDR Effect

Switching NVGs on or off should trigger HDR Effect, which simulates that your eyes get used to the new conditions. It was like that in Arma1 at least.

I used the "-winXP" switch to start the game, otherweise impossible :-(

Actually I do have the HDR effect. Possibly this is disabled when you turn postprocessing off in graphics options - is this your case, can you verify?

You need to clarify what you means. Best would be a video.

Here using NV during the days, makes it very bright green almost impossible
to see any shapes. Looking into the sun/light sources, makes it even more.

Hi this happens only at daytime i noticed, at night times there is the very good and noticable HDR effect.
In Arma*1* at daytimes, there was also very strong/noticable HDR effect when switching NVGs On/Off, so your eyes needed at least 2-3 seconds to get used to the new lighting conditions.

Added my Settings attached. For reference to the Devs, "hoch" stands for "high", "sehr hoch" for "very high", "niedrig" for "low" and "breitbild" for "widescreen".

Right. Maybe it was dropped on purpose/limitation though.

Actually, the reason for the missing HDR effect is the fact that sunlight (even during overcast weather) is much brighter than the brightest NVG image. Thus you wouldn't need any eye adoption time for turning on NVG during the day.

Does that make sense to you?
