    Whilst reading this site I was linked to Good Old Games. A digital distribution service focused on ye olde pc games, who aim to have classic titles like Monkey Island and Tie Fighter, Fallout and MDK, and so on, all fully compatible with Vista, available for between 5 and 10 dollars? Blimey mate. I'll surely sign up for the beta.

    Comapible huh. Wonder how they run on a widescreen monitor. Don't like 4:3 > 16:10 stretch o vision.

    But I signed up for the beta, particularly liked the DRM Free part.

    Oh I should add, on closer reading, Monkey Island and other LucasArts ones are merely "hoped for" at the moment, but they consider it a priority. Fallout and MDK however are confirmed, as are many other Interplay and Codemasters owned thingies, like Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Freespace 1 and 2, Sacrifice, Descent 1-3 and Kingpin: Life of Crime, with Shattered Steel, Jagged Alliance 2, Redneck Rampage, Operation: Flashpoint, Colin McRae, and TOCA Race Driver 3 supposedly coming up (found this on Shacknews).

    Buried away in the ATi Catalyst Control Centre/nVidia Control Panel (delete as appropriate), there's an option to turn off flatpanel scaling. Basically means the 4:3 picture stays 4:3, with black bars at the side.

    Yeah. It appears to have been borked in Nvidias drivers for quite a while. dDesn't work on my monitor anyway and searching google appears lots of people have the same problem.

    Doesn't always work though, I've had no end of trouble with it. For me some games just stretch regardless of that setting, and it doesn't seem to be related to whether they use software rendering, D3D or OpenGL, or what resolution I choose in-game, so I'm not sure why it is.

    Does anyone knows about GoG competitor DotEmu ?

    It has been really moving forward lately, I'm wondering how the future will look with two DRM-free digital distribution services focusing on older games.

    and the aspect can be set on the monitor settings located on your monitor physically, just pick 4:3
  • Deleted user 28 September 2010 22:02:29

    I prefer GoG of Magog, to be honest.
    Particularly the shot of Jesus the alleged magic jew carrying a sniper rifle on Calvary about 1/3 way down the page.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.
