    Hello vorpX – community !

    First of all thank you vorpX Developers – your software is worth every cent! I love experiencing my games on the DK2!

    Because I have a weaker graphics card (AMD 7750), I was happy to gain lots of fps using the “8:9 Hack”. Especially The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion runs in 960×1080 with the help of the “FOV Modifier”.

    Everything is beautiful and in around 40fps with the game main menu correctly scaled to 8:9 ascpect ratio. The game inventory and menus, too – edge peek is very helpful. So Oblivion is a clear recommendation.

    Unfortunately, the newer games based on this engine, Fallout 3 and NV have problems: In both games, the main menu does not scale to mentioned resolution, so I start new games or load saves by moving the cursor, listening to the selection-click and go. So far so good.

    But here is the catch: although both games run in 8:9 considerably faster, I cannot play them, because if I enter a new area (room or house in megaton for example), they crash. “Fallout has stopped working – Windows is checking for a solution to the problem”.

    Of course I could buy a faster gfx-card and go back to 1920*1080 which works. But perhaps somebody knows a solution to this problem.



    You could try a 4:3 or 5:4 resolution like 1280×1024. Those are directly supported by the games and even have a few advantages in regard to async timewarp.


    Thank you! I will try this and report here!


    Thank you Ralf!

    iSize W=1280
    iSize H=1024
