Hello,
I wanted to know if someone would be kind enough to provide a fix for the letterbox issue (or whatever it's called) when using resolutions like 1920x1200, etc. What happens is that when using none 16:9 resolutions there are black boarders at the top and bottom. What ends up happening is that even if you are at 1920x1200 the actual image is still 1920x1080. To compound the issue there is a performance penalty even though there is less of the image shown. However, the issue is not limited to just 1920x1200. But the example below should give you an idea of what's going on.

consolitis, acute case in this game, lol.

Thing like that, along with the "one-button to rule them all" gamepad friendly keybinding scheme, more sensitivity instead of less when aiming down the sights.

Still having a blast in the game, but cmon devs, lets stop cutting corners, and spend 16-20 dev hours actually fixing PC issues. You know EPIC will blame piracy when the game sells poorly on PC , lol.

So they took the time to preserve the 16:9 in narrower aspect ratios but let wider aspect ratios be Vert -?

In other words, 16:9 HFOV for everybody. So it's just a coherently lazy approach, actually.

Well, they don't like PC gamers, and consoles all play on 16:9 HDTV's. so screw the rest of us.

I would be forever gratfull also if one of you skilled genius's could please solve this problem. I love the game, its really fun, but i hate having borders @ 1920x1200. Im waiting for a patch/fix to play through the campaign but cant hold my breath and wait for EPIC, who might never fix it cause they dont care, it runs good on tv's...

At 1920x1200 you still get a performance penalty even though the screen is at 1080. If you go to 1080 the frame rates are better.

I found this theory on their forum:

too bad you can't really blame consoles since they are experiencing the same black bars and the image is squished. There are a lot of bugs too.
