[XBTF] Cropped HUD in 1366x768

Post by Sorkvild » Fri, 22. May 15, 17:50

I run Steam version of XBTF on my notebook in native resolution 1366x768, but the image I see is slightly cropped from top & bottom of the screen. because of that, when docked at the station I can't see the amount of credits I have. Launching in windowed mode doesn't make any better. Ideas, fixes, workarounds?

At the time X-BTF was created, standard resolutions almost exclusively used 4:3 and 5:4 aspect ratios, so the game was written in those in mind. Widescreen 16:9 and 16:10 screens came quite a bit later and unfortunately the game doesn't work perfectly in those resolutions. The only real workaround is to choose a different resolution.

4:3 ratio looks bad on laptop's display, pity :/


I think many fans would appreciate some sort of final patch for XBTF & XT that would allow to play on widescreen
