But I take it to mean that people these days can't bother reading and understanding everything posted. Including the thread that explains people's need for this hack. Any resemblance of me to a raving lunatic is completely coincidental
The main focus of the censored thread had to do with allowing the user to pick any video mode they wanted. S1 widescreen is just a side effect. The main reason for this thread was to get an answer to why the info vanished.
FWIW, I understand TTG framing issues with the games. But people want/need to use specific video resolutions for different reasons. My reason is my TV display. Other want to run at the native resolution of their LCD monitor. That is how the picture looks best.
TTG could have made the games use any resolution and then just add sidebars or letterbox as needed to keep the framing. Oddly enough this is just what they have done for Wallace & Gromit. Of course if they had done that for S&M, you would not be able to hack them to widescreen I would have liked to see a stretch to fit option in W&G, but hey, you can't have everything.
I wonder why W&G has this great new video support? I wonder if it has anything to do with W.A.B's like myself that have pestered them for years over this issue. (W=whiny, A=... figure it out)
At least this thread and the S1 widescreen pics thread have not been removed. So now people can find the link to a way to solve their problem. Not a perfect fix, but it is better then nothing. In the future I will think twice before trying to be helpful.
Now on to playing W&G tommorow. Of course first I have to make a joystick profile. Can't stand the new keyboard controls. I play from the couch, not at the desk. I had thought about starting a thread on how to use AutoHotkey to use a joystick with W&G, but...
