Whenever I play certain games full-screen the text gets horribly distorted. At the same resolution windowed the text is fine.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

A screenshot would be helpful.

I'll take a pic with my phone and upload. Screen shots produce the same quality in both states. When it's full screen and I ALT+Tab all text is distorted.

No idea. I would check and adjust your font settings. smooth text and dpi.

Almost looks to me like the full screen shots aren't in native resolution.

These are pics of the screen from a camera, right? If you take a screenshot and view that windowed, is it still messed up?

Edit-- Re-read above post, but taking viewing a screenshot produces all other text normal but the screenshot text distorted?

sorry i took so long to reply. The screenshot text will be perfectly fine if I take it windowed or fullscreen.

If i make the game fullscreen then ALT+TAB both screen shots will have distorted text along with everything else.

It kinda looks to me like the software is trying to run a resolution higher than your screen is capable of producing. I'm not sure why that would stick when you alt-tab, it shouldn't change your desktop resolution when that happens.

When I use my graphics card control panel to run my 1080p Monitor at 1620p downscaled to 1080p it produces a somewhat similar, yet not as drastic effect as your images. I'm assuming it's not as drastic since it's downscaled. However my monitor will not try to draw an image that isn't as it's out of range.

oh its only after you run a game fullscreen that this happens

ok, well yeah, run the games in the proper resolution of your monitor, but yes odd that it should not affect your desktop resolution afterwards
