View Full Version : 1280x800 doesnt fill the screen
08-20-2011, 01:01 PM
I was having a little problem with the game jerking along a little on my laptops full res so i decided to lower it. As the title suggests when i lower the setting below 1600x900 it doesnt fill the screen.
Is there anyway to fix this or is that the way it is, as its a bit of a pain to play. fullscreen with big black boarders all around.

The engine is really, really weird.
I have my video drivers set to Enable GPU scaling (either with aspect ratio or simply to the full panel).
Whenever I start the game, the driver's GPU scaling options switches to 'Use centered timings'. (that creates borders around the picture)
And as such, if you use any resolution below your desktop resolution, you end up with black borders all around. It's basically forced 1:1 pixel mapping.
Changing you desktop resolution before starting the game doesn't work! The game still starts with borders.
There is a workaround thought...
Disable GPU scaling in you radeon CCC drivers, and leave the scaling to the monitor.
Or just run the game at you maximum resolution...
It's bonkers, yes.
