    Ultrawide screen monitor?

    Post by Txema on Wed Jun 29, 2016 3:17 am

    Has anybody played Steel Fury using an Ultrawide screen monitor (aspect ratio 21:9, screen resolution 2560 x 1080)?

    How does Steel Fury look in those monitors?

    Thanks for your help !

    Once I played the game on my 55 " smart 4K TV. It was overwhelming to say the least. Worked fine .But it was only a 5 minutes experiment.

    These UHD screens are impressive, although the prices are still impressive also. Would really like to give one a try though and see if you can setup a three window display. Wouldn't it be great to have a 180 degree view of the game while playing out a mission. One word comes to mind, immersive. Wink

    Quote... you can stack two or three windows side by side without scrunching things up too badly.

    Quote... And there are a lot of compelling reasons to opt for these epic, open-faced displays over the aforementioned UHD monitors.

    Movies are more compelling, video games are significantly more immersive, and you can stack two or three windows side by side without scrunching things up too badly.

    Hi Lockie !

    I have tried Steel Fury STA 3.1 in an ultra-widescreen monitor (21:9 aspect ratio, 2560X1080 resolution). I have implemented the change that you advised in your previous post:

    It looks very good but there are some important bugs:

    The size and reticle of the gunsights is wrong. Let's see:

    Without pressing Backspace:


    Without pressing Backspace:


    After pressing Backspace:


    After pressing Backspace:


    There is "clipping" in the left side of the screen:


    BUT there is NO "clipping" (it works properly) in the right side of the screen:


    Part of the text is missing in the text window:



    Is it possible to fix these problems? How can I fix them?

    Thank you very much for your help !

    Hi again !

    Now I have tried using STA 2.2 and there are almost no problems when using the ultra-widescreen monitor (21:9 aspect ratio, 2560X1080 resolution) !!!

    I have enabled just:

    1. SSM 2.41 (Steel Sound Mod)
    2. STA 2.2
    6. Wide-screen Fix v.1.0 STA2.1

    and now the gunsights and gunsight reticles look very good !!

    moreover there is NO "clipping" with the turret hacth !!

    The only important problems are:

    Part of the text is missing in the text window, and there is an extra "box" at the bottom of the screen:


    The tooltips appear a bit cut at the bottom of the screen:


    The "box" blocks the view of some of the options. How can I change the size of that box?



    How can I solve these problems?

    Steel Fury looks fantastic in the ultra-widescreen monitor drunken drunken drunken

    Let me add an additional comment:

    I have checked STA 2.2 using the regular 1920 x 1080 (16:9) screen resolution, and I have noticed that the extra "box" still appears at the bottom of the screen:


    Moreover, these tooltips also appear a bit cut at the bottom of the screen:


    These little bugs are also a problem when using the regular 1920 x 1080 (16:9) screen resolution !

    In the in-game video settings is your screen native( 2560X1080 ) resolution listed?

    Yes, the native screen resolution 2560 x 1080 is listed and I have to select it to make it work properly.

    I think we may try. STA1.x/2.x has the base fix for the 16:9 monitor. There are some files, which used to replace the original. Don't remember what was exactly. Suppose, someone has this fix.

    This "box" is remains of my try to add "loader N2" Smile
    OK, I'll try to fix it.

    Hi Lockie !

    I have tried using STA 2.2 with the new widescreen fix v.11a and the ultra-widescreen monitor (21:9 aspect ratio, 2560X1080 resolution)

    I have enabled just:

    1. SSM 2.41 (Steel Sound Mod)
    2. STA 2.2
    3. Wide-screen Fix v.11a STA2.x

    I have set the "aspect ratio" to 0 in the config.engcfg file (aspect = 0;). In this way Steel Fury sets the aspect ratio according to the screen resolution (that I have set to 2560x1080).

    Now the extra "box" at the bottom of the screen has been eliminated (as intended) and all the text is displayed properly in the text window (as intended). These two bugs have been fixed using Wide-screen Fix v.11a STA2.x !!!





    Thank you very much for your quick fix !!!

    Для розробки моду "Монітор 21-9".
    Потрібні знімки екрану з гри  (без встановлених доповнень) оригінальних прицілів з гри (Т-34, МК-2 Матільда, Пз-4)

    To create and start to develop the mod "Monitor 21:9" it is  
    necessary to get the screen images from the game (default installation without any mods) the next original gunsight reticles:
    - T-34
    - MK-II Matilda
    - Pz.IV/F1/F2

    How about two monitors, guys? Would that also be possible? I guess not, since the gunsight is in the middle of the screen.
