    Hi guys, I'm trying to install SF Kharkov and STA 1.2 on a new laptop and having a hard time.  I have a pretty minimal JSGME setup (below), when I start the game I can only see the upper left portion of the main menu screen, as if it's blown up.  I have no access to any of the menu buttons. because of this.  I've tried changing the config resolution with no success.  and tried removing some JSGME elements which didn't help.  My laptops native resolution is 1920x1080.  Has anyone else had this problem...?  Thanks!

    Had the same issue with my new laptop which has a 15.6" screen. Everything (menu and misisons) was off screen. I solved it. I think changing the aspect entry in the config file.

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

    Try that value and save . If it does not work try 1.000000; or 0.000000;

    Didnt work I'm sad to say. Sad In fact, none of the changes I make to the config file seem to do anything.

    any other ideas?

    Thanks!

    Well, this is my first time installing on this laptop, so I don't believe there's any profiles yet.

    Do you mean disable the fix-widescreen mod in JSGME? I just did, it didn't help. Sad Thank you though.

    Well this is irritating...in the below image, the yellow square is all I can see on my monitor when I run the game.  But when I captured the screenshot using fraps, the whole screen is in the screenshot.  Shocked

    I did, but it's not 100% clear what he did to fix the issue. I don't have access to any of the menu controls because of the way the screen is positioned...can I make these changes to the config and get the same result?

    The pictures are 1920x1080, so I think the res is just the monitors resolution.

    I figured it out. Because I have bad eyes, I had Windows 10 display settings set to 150%. When I set this to 100%, all is well.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    That's  it! This is how I solved my problem too. Mine was set at 125%. I had just forgotten. Thanks for sharing it and reminding me as well. I should have shared it when it happened to me...

    For those wondering where to find this.,

    Open your Control Panel in Windows ( 7, 8 , 8.1 or 20 doesn't matter it's all the same), go to Display and Appearances and then Advanced Display settings, Customize your Display. You'll see a slider with the line above that says : Change the size of text, apps, and other items; 100%.

    and make sure it's set at 100% the default value.

    This is too bad because now I can't read anything else on my PC Sad  

    Is there no way to make SF ignore that scaling setting and just run at 100%...?

    Edit--Yes there is! Right click the SFK42 shortcut, then properties, click the compatibility tab, then check 'disable display scaling on high DPI settings"

    cheers
