Hi all am loving my 21:9 monitor, just a question with something that I don't understand . I will give you an example of what I mean , in the game titan fall in the options you have the resolution set at 2560 x1080 , but the aspect ratio only goes as far as 16:9 wide screen. So I am a little confused as I thought if it was at 2560 x1080 the aspect ratio would have an option of 21:9 which it does not . Does it mean that if you have the option of 2560 x1080 res then you are getting the real wide screen effect or is that only if you have got the option of aspect 21:9 as well as an option. I am just a little confused .Thanks in advance

It's because the game is based on the source engine. Left 4 Dead does this as well. You are getting a larger FOV, so that's not really an issue.
Source Engine just groups certain resolutions together and 16:9 is the closest Aspect ratio in it's list. This happens to me and I'm running 48:10 (7680x1600).
