Video cropped on Blackwell Deception on a 4k 16:9 screen?
« on: November 11, 2016, 12:29:11 AM »
I recently played through Shardlight on the same display so I'm not sure what it could be. For instance, on the first screen when you chat with Joey, the options are cropped out saying "hat with Joey" "lan" instead of plan and I can't even see the option that lets you leave the dialog. Any solutions? I've tried looking at the configuration tool in the game's directory but can't see anything that would fix it.

I also can't just play in windowed mode or something because that results in a reallly small image.

Thanks.

I am guessing that the game is incorrectly scaling up to your monitor size. If you go to the setup window and click on the "Advanced" tab, there's an option to enable side bars. That should theoretically fix it. Let me know what happens.

I haven't had time to try, but I think I tried that. The game isn't actually filling the screen and getting cropped off at the sides, it's just chopped off and sitting in the middle of the display in a (what I assume is) 4:3 image. I'll try both things suggested though thanks.

If anyone else ever has this issue, changing the graphics filter to 3x anti-aliasing filter fixed it for me, the side bars made no difference with or without.

Thanks for the help guys.
