Hi there
Since installing 1.02 patch I am no longer able to use my native screen resolution of 1600 x 1200.
Max is 1600 x 900. When I go down to 1280 x 1024 I get black bars top and bottom of screen.

Any idea on how to get enable 1600 x 1200, apart from re-installing the game and ignoring the patch ??

cheers

Hi Mate
Have you checked and set the aspect ratio? Mine was like that, I play at 1920x1200 res and I could only select this resolution by setting my aspect ratio to 16:10.
Hope this helps. The options in the video settings of Splinter Cell Conviction

Hi there

I feel a bit of a fool, but I followed your collective advice and found 1600 x 1200 simply by scrolling down the list that little bit further.

However, the black horizontal bars at both the top and bottom of the screen are still there.

As I have a 20" LCD monitor I am assuming the Aspect Ratio should be 4:3 ??

Any suggestions on how to get rid of the black bars ??

cheers

Hi guys

No luck I'm afraid.

darkzero7.....My mfg recommends a resolution for my 20" LCD monitor of 1600 x 1200. That also seems the norm from my googling.

sam2000_290.....16:9 certainly gets rid of the bars top and bottom. I guess that's when Nvidia scaling comes into play ??

I find that intersting as I don't have to do that with other games. I just leave the Aspect ration at 4:3 and 1600 x 1200 is fine, no bars top or bottom.

I also think the screen characters look a bit odd....stretched I guess is the best description.

Anyway, it works ( sort of ) so I'll decided which looks better.

At least the game is working well, so I shouldn't complain too much !!

cheers and appreciate all your advice
