Is there a way of setting it to 4:3 screen??

  1. I just bought the game and it plays on 16:9 as default. The problem is that my TV is a regular one, it does not support wide screen. Is there any way to set the screen to 4:3? I've looked for it but still haven't found!
    Thanks in advance.

  1. I think you should check what greatanubis said and make sure the Wii's setting is in 4:3. Also this resident evil is the first one to use the black areas on the bottom and top of the screen, giving it a "widescreen" effect. You should recheck the TV too. I could be some sort of setting or hardware compability.

  1. Is the Wii's system setting set to be 4:3? I haven't trying playing on a normal television, but all of my Wii games pick up the video setting from the Wii's system menu. Resident Evil 4 is not quite 16:9 though, so it may be different.

  2. There is no way to change RE4 to 4:3. Yes, it does suck. I have the same issue. My settings are on 4:3, but unless you have a crappy tv, it'll be fine.

  3. Why would you even want to change it to 4:3? It's better in widescreen and it doesn't matter whether your TV is widescreen or not.

  4. It's letter boxed, so even though you have the two black bars across the top and bottom of the screen, its still in 4:3 format. I think that may be what you're seeing.
