official word on widescreen
« on: 08-01-2010, 00:01:11 »
I know he last patch added widescreen support so when I went out to replace my old failing monitor I happily bought a hi def 1920x1080 21.5 in monitor.

Easy enough to choose the correct resolution (1920x1080) in the game menu.  The game world looks nice too, but the map and chat/hud look like complete crap - it's as if i'm playing on my old 17" but with the text and map just stretched an extra 4.5 inches.  The text is enormous and wipes out my field of view, it's nasty to look at.

Does the widescreen fixer fix this?

Is this officially supported, no issues with punkbuster, etc?

Or is there another solution?

It's supported, and I  don't know why you are having these problems. But I assure you that it works, and I have screenies to prove it somewhere on the forum

Prove that what works, the built in EA/dice support or the widescreen fixer?

I don't have the widescreen fixer, I'm trying to find out about it... long have I heard of it's PB troubles as I played on a 17" 4:3 screen for the last 7 years.  Then wegot the 1.5 patch so i figured when i upgraded to a wide I'd have no worries... but yes my text and map, aka the hud, all look like hell. 

big blown out shitty text...  what to do...

EA support, but It won't look perfect because of EA. post a pic, it'll be easier to tell if it's a problem
