    It could be the tears trickling down your eyes when you look at that tiger???? Shocked

    Seriously is it the actual picture in game when playing the mission or the pic of the game menu? Because the game menu has rain drops added once you enable the Autumn weather mod .I think ti was Deviator who added that feature a while ago.enabled

    I apologize, I wasnt being specific enough of what the problem is. When I run SF I think the game is defaulting to its basic resolution, My monitor is native 2560x1440, So when I get to the Main Menu I can only see the top left corner of the screen, like in the screenshot. I have tried editing the config file but that didnt work, also tried clicking "use desktop resolution" and the 'no hardware restrictions button" and installing and uninstalling every version of the widescreen fix mod I could find.

    sorry for not being more specific but I thought this might be a common problem.

    Then it is a problem of the video card drivers.
    For any case plug off TV set. then:
    1. uncheck "no video restriction", save, re-start the game


    2. if it didn't help, then check "no video restriction", save, exit.
    3. install desktop resolution 1920x1080
    4. start NVIDIA control panel and find smth. like:
    - "use NVIDIA scale"
    - "use NVIDIA scale at fixed image"
    - "use monitor scale"
    - "no scale"

    Play with all items and check out how picture looks in the game. U need to save ratio of the monitor resolution or manually setup where the center of monitor is. Suppose, WIN10 installed the monitor center in the wrong position in the game, then u've to change it.

    If all else fails try changing the value for Aspect in the render paragraph of the config file:

    //ïðîïîðöèè ýêðàíà (4/3, 16/9, 16/1, 5/4)
    aspect = 1.777777;
    //îêîííûé ðåæèì
    windowed = 1;

    If you have 0.000000 try 1.777777

    Also set windowed at = 1 if not already done.
