View Full Version : Black bars on top and bottom of the screen

I have a huge problem. When I am playing Revelation (not during cutscenes), there is a black border on top and on the bottom of my screen. This hugely limits my field of view, and makes the effective screen size smaller. What can I do about this?

Post a screenshot please. I would like to see

That's normal.
It's been there since the first Myst, I'm not sure why but somebody probably knows somewere.

It's your other actions bar....

Hmm, I thought the black bar was just on the bottom.

Thanks for the fast reply!
I have found the nature of the "problem". Myst4 chooses a (CRT) Monitor frequency of 100Hz at a resolution of 1024*768. The size of my screen is configured for 1152 @ 85 Hz.

All I had to do is adjust the edges of my monitor. ^_^ how easy is that, and how could I not have seen it ;-) My sincere apologies for this annoying newbie-issue.
