Display setting question(s)
JUst upgraded to a new CTX EX950F 9"monitor and am running into some strange things. Hope a few of the hardware guru's cab explain. Old mnitor was a CTX 17" - had desktop display set at 800x600/75hz refresh - 32bit. Had dislay set from edge to edge. Video card GeForec2 GTS 64M.
FS2k2 was set to 1280/960 and I usually run in fullscreen 3d mode. Display filled crt edge to edge top/bottom.
With new monitor (19") using recommnded 85hz refresh the fs2k2 display fills screen BUT is actually a little too big. Hit ALT for menu and can just barely see it at the top. Red pause messsage can't be seen at bottom. I can resize the screen but the menu always stays at the top.
Now for the funny part ( to me anyway) - changed the fs2k2 display setting to 1280x1024. Now the full screen display has a black border 1/2" on sides and top and 1/4" on bottom BUT menu and all messages are clearly visible.
1)Why does this happen?
2) How can I get the display to fill the screen AND still display the menu, etc?
I'm really puzzled why changing monitors has had this effect - the video drivers (Nvidia 1241) are the same.
Thanx for any help,
