Widescreen resolution setting 16:9

6 posts in this topic

In the net7 config there is 1280x720 resolution but it’s not 16:9 native so the pixels are rectangular and not square (makes a stretched picture). It looks alot like 1024x786 just stretched to 1280x720. Now I know that the Earth is a bit oval but not THAT oval... like a big goose eg:);) So is that just how it is with no 16:9? I know it didn't launch with widescreen support, but not sure if the net7 resolution is suppose to work correctly or just a Micky Mouse fix.

*shudder* I should be getting my widescreen monitor back in the mail before too long... I hope this thing can be letterboxed!

Do you mean the 'Earth & Beyond Configuration' utility under 'Earth & Beyond' in the 'Start -> Programs' menu?

As far as I'm aware, E&B only ever offered support for 4:3 ratio resolutions.

Open the net7 configuration tool, the resolution slider is on the video tab. Notice first four words of my post ;)

The graphics will 'scale' to display in these resolutions.

Therefore will 'stretch' when running in 16:9.

Widescreen didnt exist when the client was created .. Not much we can do without a new client (I think)
