Playdead-16:10 support on PC please!!

Come on guys we all love this game but no 16:10 support is a little lame most PC gamers will not have a 16:9 display so if you could please look into patching this small thing along with an option to disable force feedback (I know I can edit the settings.txt file to false).

Thank you for listening.

According to the steam hardware survey 16:9 monitors are by far the most dominant in the market nowadays and the number is only going to increase.

16:10 monitors are a dying breed i'm afraid. So get used to seeing even more games in the future with no support for them.

Yep, 16:10 is going the way of the dinassaur.

Thanks for the info, but honestly, who cares? I also have a 16:10 (bought two years ago) monitor and I don't see the reason why I should accept this answer only because there are not much 16:10's around nowadays. How hard would it be to simply add a new resolution?

On the other hand, this is not really a problem with Limbo, since it is pretty dark, it is hard to see the difference.

Just face it. 16:9 is the present and the future. 16:10 is the past.

So buy a new monitor or stop moaning.

Yeah, you guys are right. I'm gonna throw out my dinosaur 30" 2560x1600 Dell monitor and get a brand new 27" 2560x1440 16:9 monitor. The upgrade will probably blow me away. *rolleyes*

if you have a 16:10 monitor, you have also a 16:9 monitor included, so, what's the problem?

I disagree with 16:10 being dead. Yes 16:9 is cheaper to make and easier to buy but if you want to spend the extra cash for an IPS 16:10 monitor they are still easy to find. I have the Dell U2410 24” IPS panel and I will never go back to a 16:9!! (No offense to 16:9 users!)

All of the games I have bought in these past months still support 16:10 (for PC games) and will continue too!
(I cannot think of any other game that I have recently purchased that does not support 16:10. LIMBO is the only one I can think of so far!)

I agree with the OP and wish Playdead would add the 16:10 option, but for a small indie game I don't think it will happen. I don’t mind the 16:9 in LIMBO, but if it was an FPS or MMO then it would.

Not only is that false, but it's a complete mischaracterization of the Steam Hardware Survey too.

http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey

40% of users have 16:10 aspect ratio monitor
36% of users have 16:9 aspect ratio monitor

edit: that's July 2011 survey results, since they don't have August results up yet

My hero.

I grow tired of ppl bashing us 16:10'ers. Get a clue, 16:10 is an awesome standard for alotta things outside of games, and should be supported properly in games for those of us who choose to go with it.

Stop punishing the few who choose to be different.

Why? Dell monitors are generally quite good.

My monitor is 16:10 and I can't honestly say I noticed the game running in 16:9. It's not that big a deal, is it?
