    Oh, nah, the resultion doesnt support wide screen sadly. Remember this was a game made in 97..or was the PC in 98....regardless still, to be able to play at normally higher is a miricle, they may update it in the future though.

    I doubt widescreen will ever be an option because these backgrounds are hand-drawn, as opposed to 3-D environments. It would take a full-on remake in order for widescreen to be supported.

    go into the settings and uncheck "keep aspect ratio". i just tested it, there is still a black bar at the bottom, but the rest is full screen

    Wide screen looks horrible seriously....

    Just tried it out. It works, but it zooms in a bit and messes with the character models (reletaive to the size of the background). I like that they gave us the option, but there's a reason why it's checked by default I suppose.

    Does anyone else have a black bar at the bottom of the screen that doesn't go away, regardless of resolution? Even if I turn on widescreen, it's still there.

    Bugs me, honestly.

    Yeap, universal. I read it exists on the original PC version as well....I think. But it's negligible in my sense.

    It exists in any resolution higher than 640x480 I believe. I will test really quick.


    EDIT: it seems that the black bar is here to stay.


    To correct my pervious statement, it seems it only will not exist if you play the original game in 640x480 on a CRT monitor.

    The black bar at the bottom is used by the menu system. So if you go into your menu you won't have as big of a black bar at the bottom.
