    widescreen problems

    I just bought a new wide-screen laptop (1680x1050 resolution). When the program runs, everything is horizontally skewed; this makes moving things go much more quickly horizontally than vertically (making the game generally difficult to play). I’ve tried changing the resolution on the machine, but DII always runs with the same stretched screen (even when I launch it in a window with the “-w†addition to the shortcut). Is there any way I can fix this?

    i WAS going to suggest running it windowed. i'm running 1280 x 854 so i know the trouble with skew. i made mine windowed with the -w and it's a perfect little 800 x 600 box. why didn't yours work when you did that?

    Ok, I tried it again, and it wasn't skewed. I"m going to walk away now, hanging my head in shame.

    Thanks a lot for showing that I'm too stupid for my own good.

    theres really no way to fix it. I have 15.4 widescreen laptop and at first it seemed weird but after a while i got used to it.
