GTA IV is so awfully optimised, but I seem to remember it possibly being CPU limited, so it might not be impossible to run at 1440p to downsample (though for you running 1680x1050, you would want to try 1920x1200 or 2560x1600).

Not heard anything about GTA V for PC apart from rumours.

Man GTA IV is such a bad port. Playing it for the first time the other day for a long time to see it's still plagued by bugs, including not being able to detect the proper gpu settings out of the box, rockstar should be ashamed.

Well i can't seem to get my Qnix to do this. I could not get anything out of 120hz(likely due to bandwidth) so i set it down to 60hz to open up some headroom. Now i can set it all the way up to 4160x2840 but it does not keep aspect ratio, nor does it pan scan the screen there is just parts of the screen that are OFF the screen. I do have it set to override scaling and i did just do it on my Asus screen and it worked. Not sure what is going on maybe it is a limitation of the monitor since the name brand seemed to work just fine.

Yeah, the patches were almost an insult. They fixed a couple of the (huge number of) bugs, and then one of the patches made certain mods run worse as well.

120Hz is, like you said, unlikely, though I think some Qnix and Catleap owners have been able to get 110 or 120Hz. I wouldn't use 4160x2840 since it's a weird aspect ratio. I'd probably just stick to 3840x2160 as a maximum, or 3840x2400 for 16:10.

For Nvidia, your scaling options should be set as follows: select "aspect ratio" as the scaling mode, perform the scaling on the GPU, and check "override the scaling mode set by games and programs". Not sure what options are available to AMD users.

My first monitor went to 120 no problem. My next two got fuzzy at 96 hz.

I have all this set like you said but it still seems to through it outside the screen. Like the start menu is off the screen at the bottom almost like scaling is not working. Another way of putting it is the screen UI is not getting smaller so it is not supersampling. It seemed to be working on my other monitor so i am not sure what is wrong.

I don't know either frown.gif

It could be that your monitor doesn't support the scaling properly, but then since we've set "perform scaling on GPU" I wouldn't have thought the monitor would determine that.
