Hi,

I'm running OS 9.2.2 on my Blue and White, and have a 16:10 display connected, which works fine at native resolution. However, some older games force 640x480, and they get stretched horizontally to fill the screen.

Is it possible to force a 4:3 aspect so that everything is the correct shape? It does depend on the game, but in many cases I'd prefer to have black pillars on the sides instead of everything being stretched.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

I had never even thought to look at the settings on the display itself :)

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll take a look once I get home.

Well, there doesn't seem to be an option... although it's hard to say for sure because this display (an AOC) has the worst UI imaginable :(
