View Full Version : Tomb Raider Legend - aspect ratios

27th Dec 2006, 02:09
I have a new widescreen monitor (Dell 20" 16x10 aspect ratio). I wanted to purchase the Tomb Raider Legend game, but I read on one forum that that the image will appear stretched on a 16:10 monitor. My question is, will I still be able to play the game in 4:3 aspect ratio without the image being distorted? It's ok if I have black bars on the side of the screen, I'm just don't want the image to appear distorted.

I have a 20" Dell too, 2005FPW. There are no black bars, the game looks fine and takes up the whole screen. It just doesn't look good in widescreen mode. In widescreen mode things look squished because the widescreen setting of the game was apparently designed for 16:9 widescreen, rather than the 16:10 widescreen that we have.

So it looks squished in widescreen mode because of this, but it looks just fine in normal mode. Takes up the whole screen and everything.
