The game Battlestar Galactica (Sierra Online, 2007) natively supports widescreen modes configured from within the game.

It allows independent setting of ratios:
4:3, 16:9, 16:10

and resolutions:
1024x768
1152x864
1280x720
1280x800
1280x960
1280x1024
1440x900
1600x1200
1680x1050
1920x1080
1920x1200

The game configuration file may be hand edited to set custom modes not officially supported by the game.
In MyDocumentsMyGamesBattlestar GalacticacvarsArchive.gm
the following variables may be configured to set almost any fullscreen or windowed display mode:

cvar.displayPhysicalScreenRatio = 1.33333;
cvar.fullscreenSizeX = 1024;
cvar.fullscreenSizeY = 768;

Oh yeah, I forgot. It's Hor+
Here's 1024x768 shots, top at 4:3, bottom at 16:10, print screen from game in full screen mode. I merged and added green text labels top left.

I just realized you might want separate images to copy into the wiki for a page, so here they are:

1024x768 4:3

1680x1050 16:10

Very cool. Looks like it may qualify for Certification as having perfect widescreen. Any chance you could do a Detailed Report - http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/forum/1067

We do Wiki pages after we get the DR.
