I didnt hear any comment on that particular matter from Oleg , and any mail regarding widescreensupport towards Oleg was kept unanswered http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
The current "fake" support is an annoyance and was never taken seriously by the development team.
Funny, I know games from 1999 with full widescreensupport , acnt be that hard to do , can it ?
There where some topics a while back , I dont think Oleg was in the house when they appeared and gone under in this forum.

P.S. Hi Slechtvalk former 37NV_ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I asked Oleg and he said wide screen support is a problem with video card drivers, not IL2. The thing is I tried both my ATI 9800 and my new GeForce 6800 GT and both have the same errors.

Weird. I don't really believe that this is a video driver problem because I can use widescreen with others games which support widescreen.

It's not a video card problem. No other titles I have (like Half Life 2) have an issue playing in WS format. I can get it the game into widescreen format but the picture is cropped because it isn't ruly supported...

What you missed in the "old" thread:
Well it "works", but with following limitations (that rather gives widescreen a disadvantage compared to 5:4 displays with 1280x1024):
underlying picture is 5:4 , green border is standard 4:3 (e.g. 1024x768) and the orange border is what you see with ~16:9 resolution.

funny thing is that the engine cant scale the field of view side by side, only from top to bottom !

I dont know about you , but i want that side to side , would be a complete other sim for me!
P.S. And dont think above is impossible, I just used the "rotate" feature in mopdern drivers to get to a resolution of 800x1280 , so if I would be able to tilt my screen you could nearly look above you without moving the view !

What's interesting is that other games can use it.

We really need it for BOB. It would be very immersive to say the least.

I have seen your first picture but I didn't know you could scale the game the way you showed it in that other picture. It's almost funny! Good thing is that I can tilt my monitor so perhaps I could try to fly like that. But yes a wider view horizontal would be much much better.
