Resolution problem when in full screen

#1tgrokzPosted 3/24/2010 9:51:54 PM
my screen's native resolution is 1680x1050, yet when i run this in full screen, the resolution appears to be 800x600, the gamma or brightness seems way too high with a tint of green, and there are 2 small black strips running up the right and left side. i have this same problem with metro 2033, and while it also happened with AVP, the most recent patch for it fixed the issue. whats strange is that when i put it into windowed mode, the resolution looks perfect and crisp. the second it goes back to full screen, it looks like garbage
i also noticed that when the game starts in full screen, im able to hit keys and bypass the opening vids, where as while windowed, i have to wait for the little company logo nonsense clips.

i have a radeon 4870HD 1gb (w/ latest drivers), intel 3.2 quad, 8gb DDR2 ram, and windows 7
any help would be appreciated

also, as a side note, this is the first time ive posted on the GF boards in at least 7 or 8 years. apparently all the karma from my posts i made in middle school gained a ton of interest and im ancient. funny stuff.

Have you checked to see if you are forcing the game to run in that resolution in full screen via game options OR some option in your video card driver?

i ended up fixing it by enabling GPU scaling on the driver. metro 2033 still doesnt work right, but im more interested in JC2, anyway. thanks, though

i had that problem when i had my tv/monitor hooked up to the vga input on my tv. had to use a dvi to vga adapter from my vid card and whenever i tried to play games in my native res (1360x768) it would default to 1280x768 with black bars along the sides.
switched to hdmi connection and no problems anymore, i can even go past the native res but text looks all muddy and asslike
