gtx460 scaling from 720p to 1280x1024 in metro 2033 and bfbc2

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm using dvi to hdmi from an evga gtx460 1gb to an acer 5360 projector, the projector is capable of 1080p, and the games play fine that way, but when I switch to 720p (to enable 3d), the projector is tricked into thinking its 1280x1024, and the picture ends up squished. Anyone have similar issues?

next time use the edit button instead of double posting

have u try forcing the resolution through nvidia control panel? what does the res on the panel says? have u try fiddling with the settings on the projector?
if these don't work, try creating a custom resolution in nvidia panel.

Like jam3s said, it's probably one of the 'zoom' or 'aspect' settings on the projector that you need to change.

Make sure the nvidia control panel recognize the projector correctly.

the projector is pretty simple and didn't have many options, I did change it to force 16:9 but that didn't enable 120 hz, but it did un-squeeze my image back to normal.

From the nvidia control panel, in stereoscopic settings, I clicked test 3d, then selected AA from its menu and choose to use for all games. And that seemed to solve the problem.

Now I want to know, is this a issue caused by DX11, because my 8800 I was using had no problem with these games, or is this a particular game engine not liking my gtx460?
