  • Widescreen Question?

    I finally got this to run in full screen.Just want to know if I have this right,reason i'm asking is because i have no black bars at top,bottom and sides without using the 1.40 fixer.That people talk about.

    -Using nividia scale keep aspect ratio.
    -1680x1050 res
    - video con file is [email protected]
    -settings in game are [email protected]

    Just wonderd why no black bars?



    Does this look like kept aspect ratio or just stretched?Looks fine to me?

    Need Opinions

    Thanks

    it looks stretched to me. the HUD in the top right should be a circle, no?



    the one issue I see is the aperture of the sight, but the angle of the gun should skew that to a thin/tall oval. the more perfect circle in your pic seems warped in relation to the angle to me.

      Actually i was reading that in widescreen the hud is suppose to be a little oval. This is my shortcut edit:"C:\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" +menu 1 +widescreen 1 +szx 1680 +szy 1050.

        the aperture of the sight still looks wrong.... mine does too, but I just threw it in paint to skew it real qick, so the ratio is probably not right.

            I was saying the difference in the pics. I was actually lookin in here to see what I needed to get in. I have not installed the game.... yet.

                You have the shortcut mod correct. Even when you use the widescreen fixer the hud will still be slightly oval. I have heard that the +szx 1680 +szy 1050 command is not perfect aspect ratio for BF2 because what you are seeing as widscreen is actually the 4:3 ratio with the top and bottom of the picture trimmed to fit the wide profile. Also, you will not see black bars. When you play a newer game like COD4, you can actually expand your FOV (field of view) for a more true widscreen image with proper aspect ratio. For BF2, try playing with with widescreen fixer at 16x10 or 16X9 to see if you see a difference. You may also want to check and see if it makes a difference to run the unmodified shortcut with widescreen fixer. I have them both and just got used to how it looks so I have not messed with it.
