Hello,

After trying many monitor configs in my past years of PC gaming (simple solo monitor, dual screen, 3D solo monitor, ...) I've recently decide to do for the best with my technology needs but with my lack of room to even start to dream of a real triple screen config :triplewide: :cry:

So I'm now a proud member of the 21:9 monitors family (with a LG 29EA73) and I now register to this beautifull forum with the wish to help to add informations / screenshots / reports for 21:9 in the Games Database !

I've got a good list of games in Steam, I should manage to add something interesting in there :D

I take a little bit more of time to become familiar with couple of barbarian concepts (HOR+ for example :wave: ) and I'll shortly be back to contribute !

:savews:

Hello and welcome!

:welcome

We sure have a lot of games that could use some 21:9 updates!

If you need any help, let us know. Also, join us in IRC. You'll see a fair few names and there may not be anyone talking straight away as we're often busy, but when we get back to our PC's we'd love to say hi and help out.

Cheers! Timmeh

Just done my first update on the Game Database for 21:9 Support on Age of Empires II: HD Edition :rockout:

It was the first game I found in common in the existing database and in my steam account to try an update :lol:

I'll continue tu update some existing games until I found one to create in the database 8-)

Great work mate!

Just a tip, when adding a screenshot, try to replicate the exact screenshots used in the game. It's pretty hard for a game like Age of Empires though with no real constant starting point in the game, so you just do what you can which is what you did.

Cheers!

Indeed, I've tried to find the same Gameplay Screenshot but it was not taken from the first mission of the campaign :doh:
So I take it somewhere where I can discover all the screen quickly.

I'll try to do a better screenshot matching next time

As you identify, ideally the DR *should* have been made from the start of the first campaign mission (or any reproducible situation that is available to people who have just installed the game).

If I come across this situation, I will usually re-do all the images from the same point that people coming along later can reproduce, but I understand not everyone has access to multi-monitor and 21:9.

:rockout:

Exactly, I think the same way, even if I make new screenshots for the resolutions I can, there some I can't do, like multi monitors, so I just add the 21:9 ...

For today, I updated Diablo 3 with 21:9 informations & screenshots, and this time, they all match ! :rockout:
