Re: Widescreen Resolutions with Aspect Ratio Correction

Here's what I will do: - if user selects 16:9 resolution (more than 16:10) - games will be rendered in 16:10 with black pillars, - if user selects 16:10, 5:4, 3:4 resolution (lower or equal 16:10) - games will be stretched to entire screen. Sounds good. Thanks for taking the time to consider all th...

Re: Widescreen Resolutions with Aspect Ratio Correction

The approach outlined above, using black borders, sounds good. Realworld usecase I have with diablo 2. In example 2 - 16:10 display - Lets say I run diablo 2 at 800x600 (in game) - nglide is set to 1900x1200 (native resolution of montitor) - Game looks fine, as nglide currently displays the full gam...

Re: Widescreen Resolutions with Aspect Ratio Correction

Thanks for the excellent explaination!

Having the options below seems to cover all the possibilites

- auto render in 4:3 for 16:9 display
- auto render in 16:10 for 16:9 display

Re: Widescreen Resolutions with Aspect Ratio Correction

Yes, it is possible, but it's unreasonable. Stretching 4:3 games to 16:9 is just too much. The best setting for your monitor without losing image quality is to use 1440x900 (16:10 aspect ratio). Two small 80pix black bars on the left and right side of monitor don't harm too much and it keeps aspect...

Nglide Resolutions

More of a Niggle than a problem: I noticed that nglide does not list 1920x1080 as a resolution - there is a drop box of standard resolutions. Testing with diablo 2, leaving the resolution at 'by app', means that it does not streatch to the full native resolution for a 16:9 1920x1080 monitor. Playabl...
