I recently had to buy a new monitor and got a high res wide screen, but it screws up Diablo II bad. I realize that there might have already been a thread about this, but I could not find it. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
Your monitor itself should have a "preserve aspect ratio" setting or something like that. You have to activate it while the game is running. It will lead to black borders to the left and right, of course.
Unfortunately that is not a option available in the control panel of the graphics card or monitor. Nvidia no longer supports this card (which is only 3 years old) It looks more and more like I will have to take this monitor back and find a normal monitor somewhere.
I had the same 'problem' as you, but I just decided to play with the distorted screen. After a while you hardly notice any widening effect. Much less hassle to just get used to it than to buy a new monitor. :thumbup:
