  • scaling for Geforce 8800 GTX

    So I am trying to figure out scaling. I have a widescreen display but am trying to display a game (BF2142) running 4:3. Right now it is streaching it, where I would like to have it put black bars up.

    I went into the Nvidia control panel, went to "change flat panel scaling, then put it on "Use Nvidia scaling with fixed-aspect ratio". Which should do the trick. But when I launch the game it still runs full screen. Dunno if I am doing anything wrong.

    Game is running at 1280x960 and my native res is 1650 x 1080

    i as well play 2142 on a 1650x1080, with the game resolution at 1280x1024, the 4:3 on my 16:10 screen doesnt distort any (not that i can notice)
    **********BUT 1280x960 is widescreen format... switch your game to 1280x1024 and that should make your bars appear

      hmm 1280 x 960 is 4 x 3

      4(320) x 3 (320)= 1280 x 960

      widescreen would be 1280 x 800

          Well for 2142, you can change the shortcut to run the game in widescreen by adding to the command line.

          Right click on the 2142 shortcut
          Go to properties
          Go to the Shortcut tab
          In the target line add the following to the end:

          +szx [length] +szy [height]

          For example, my shortcut says this:

          "E:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142\BF2142Pace.exe" +menu 1 +fullscreen 1 +szx 1920 +szy 1200

          Where my resolution is 1920X1200

            Talon-

            I was reading the release notes for the latest forceware that was released yesterday (158.22). In the "Open" issues section which means "issues that are either not fixed or not implemented in this version" I found the following note for WinXP:

            GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS: Flat-panel scaling doesn't work with widescreen
            monitors. [309707]

            It sounds like your problem may be an overall problem that NVIDIA is aware of but hasn't yet/can't fix.
