    Default Irregular resolution problems

    Ok so I tried a quick search and I couldn't really find much so I need some help with this. I run my computer through my tv and because of this I have to use an irregular resolution size. 1768x992. I don't know how much of the dxdiag is needed so I'll put up to my video card. Let me know if more is needed.

    Don't know if that helps at all. Anyway the problem I'm having is that I can't get a resolution that fits my screen.
    1280x720 I would assume would pit the screen no problem but it only makes it worse. I am running it fullscreen so maybe I need to use windowed mode? I don't know I need help. I was running it on my laptop before I built this computer and it was running perfectly as I think 1600x800 fullscreen o I don't know. Maybe because my monitor is an lcd tv?

    The "lowest" resolution the game can go is 1024x768.

    So I guess 1280x720 is basically to low in vertical direction.

    But if you have an LCD TV you might have to set the proper "overscan" or "underscan" ration if you wish it to operate as a PC monitor.

    You might also need "drivers" for it when used as PC monitor.

    What is the LCD TVs native resolution ? That is what matters most for PC usage and for image quality you dont want ANY kind of scaling whatsoever anyway.
