Is there anyway (Website links/Hacks/Tutorials) to make games that don't support widescreen format (16:9/16:10) to make them run in that mode?

Most of my games that dont support widescreen will run at 1680x1050 but its not widescreen and chops the top and bottom off.

I remember dual headed gaming with Quake 3... But it is only for video cards that had DVI/VGA, not another PCi card randomly slapped into your computer, also it only works on Linux... :whistle:

about 10-20% of games support widescreen, some that don't can support after you edit few files

and most just won't support it

if you have an ati card, turn off, scale image to display in catalyst driver, this way it will keep the game in original aspect ratio (4:3) instead of stretching it

Well, most games I have do support widescreen.

Just some dont, even though they will run at the wide screen resolution.

Never mind then.

Just thinking real quick here, wouldnt this give you an edge in games? For example in cs, lets say, your walking through somewhere and off into the distance there is a guy that you wouldn't have seen if it werent widescreen, because it would have gone off the screen with a regular screen?

No... You're just changing the ratio of the image, not the output. If you get what I mean. Thats a quick thinker from me. I dont see how you could change the original image.

yes but on a bigger screen the guy in the distance would be bigger and therefore easier to see, thus having a big screen does add up to an advantage.........and they also kick ass :)
