How do I stretch my resolutions in games?

#1el_DubblePosted 3/28/2014 6:37:40 PM
So i'm playing old games lately due to my pants laptop and my native reso is 1366x768 but alot of old games dont have widescreen so i'm playing in 4:3 reso's.

Which is fine but none of the games stretch, theres just these huge black bars down the side.

I've looked at my graphics properties and theres only one scaling option and it reads "maintain display scaling"

Any way I can fix this?

I don' tthink you can stretch a games resolution unless there is an option for it.

Google the specific games, there may be .ini tweaks that might let you do it but it all depends on the game.
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

Wow, you're laptop automatically maintains aspect ratio for you in the best possible way and you're complaining and want it to stop...

Usually if it stretches a 4:3 game into 16:9 or 16:10 it's just gonna make everyone look extra short and wide...I used to have that problem playing Max Payne. He looked like the pic on the left:

Anyway... you might check to see if there's a widescreen mod for your game...
If you check there you might be able to find one (Depending on the game)

Whoa, wait, what? There are some people that would rather have a stretched image than a correct aspect ratio? I can't stand having things stretched and I despise panoramic view (where only the sides are stretched).
