Hello,

you did a screenshot of the game in a maximized window. In such case, you have to manually set the window size to be of a 4:3 ratio (or you can use the in-game display menu as well) .

In real fullscreen, you have to configure your display driver in such a way that it will force a 4:3 ratio for 4:3 all resolutions ; for example, setting the display to 1024x768 will add some black bars on the left and right of the screen to display the correct ratio.

You'll have the same problem with all older games, and 2D games, and you'll need the same solution to correct that...

Hello,

it's not an option in the game, but it should be in your display drivers configuration panel.
I have it with my NVidia drivers ( name = Use NVidia scaling with fixed-aspect ratio), and it is very likely that recent ATI/ADM & Intel drivers have this option as well...

Hello,

humm, then there's not much you can do, except playing in windowed mode... :?
Maybe you could try to download the latest version of your display drivers, if you didn't already, just in case...
