Got my 7800GS and now I play at 1280x1024. I would play at 1600x1280, but the refresh rate is really low at that point since I got a CRT. Besides, I don't feel the need to. It's really awesome. Lots of fun

Finally, somebody else who thinks RO has great graphics. I play it at 1280x1024 also, and it looks great.

People who say RO looks ugly, maybe it should. Its WW2. Look at DOD:S. The game looks cheerful and happy and bright. RO looks dark and dirty, like WW2.

Widescreen is the future.


1440x900 *drools*. I also get a larger field of vision than non widescreen users.

Widescreens are the future for games. Its alot more immersive when you actually have peripheral vision in games.

Long live 1920x1200, And you don't get a broader field of vision with a widescreen. The bottom and top gets cut of so if you got a 19" monitor everything on screen will be as big as a 21 inch monitor or something.

I play at 1280x1024 with 4x AA, and the game looks pretty unique. I think it might be the AA's doing, but everything looks 2D from a distance. Like a painting or something.

AFAIK, the pov doesn't change if you use a widescreen resolution, which results in the game looky kinda wonky (especially the HUD since it gets stretched out)

which is too bad b/c I'd love to play the game in widescreen on my widescreen monitor but it just doesn't look right.

You are correct sir! If you play on a 1280x1024 res. you'll note that the hud is already stretched out a *tiny* bit.:D

Yes you can't change the pov anymore so you won't see a broader like you could in the mod. Instead you run on a normal res and the top and bottom are cut off. and then a stretched hud is slapped on it.

In the hud round things will be oval. but ingame round will stay round.

I play at 800x600, and I still thinks it's good. There may be less pixels but the graphics are still great, the people are the same, the gameplay is still superb. I coukd play at 1280x1024, I tried it once, yes maybe the graphics are smooth and cool, and pleasant to the eye, but when ever I am shot at, and get supressed, I get a drop of FPS, and it's almost impossible to survive, or even to move. I think I'll stick to 800x600. I'm going to try 1280x1024 on BiA now though.

I plugged my 27"HD Samsung tele onto my 6600gt and there is no going back for me.

Running on 1360x768.

Its very plug & play and auto adjusts itself when a new game is installed.
HL2 & Co, UT4k, CoH's all work with no problem.

running at 1920x1200 with 8x AA & 4x AF - looks fantastic. Though admittedly each new game is a little harder to run at that Res. I can just about play Oblivion acceptably at that size without my computer collapsing.....
