[Official] 21:9 Owner's Appreciation Thread... post... anything related to 21:9! - Page 22

I asked Steam forums about a game if it had support for 21:9... Developer answered me first said that I had to play windowed with ini edit... Later he replied again saying that he messed up because he though 21:9 was surround with 3 monitors and it was the first time he heard about 2560x1080p resolution frown.gif

Come on developers do your work and follow technology redface.gif

he was a cool guy though.

Wow, how does a game dev "never knew" about 21:9?

Probably because 21:9 is still an incredibly niche market. How many normal gamers do you know actually have one? Out of all my real life friends who game on PC, only I use 21:9. The rest are on 16:9 or 16:10. Any time ANYONE considers buying non-mainstream products, they should have already considered that they will be receiving very little support from the majority of the industry.

Incredibly niche? A year ago when i got mine, sure. I actually have 2 friends IRL that have 21:9... one I didn't even realize PC gamed has had one for a while now and another that has had his since Black Friday.

And judging by the number of models currently available and coming soon, manufacturers certainly aren't ignoring the market segment...

When you got one does not make a difference whether or not it is niche or not niche. Those 2 friends you know are probably what a normal gamer would consider a high end enthusiast would be my guess. Here is a better statistic to go on:

Per Steam's Hardware Survey released 1/2016

1366x768 (laptop resolution) - 26.62%
1920x1080 (1080p) - 35.11%
21:9 (2560x1080 and 3440x1440) - A whopping 0.34%

When an entire aspect ratio (not even talking about a specific resolution here) is less than half a percent, then yes, it is an incredibly niche product. Enthusiasts do not drive the gaming market. Monitor manufacturers work in a "follow the leader" type world where if one releases a certain type of monitor, than others will too, simply because they want to have one as well. Here is the thing, new monitors do NOT drive the gaming market. It is MAINSTREAM ADOPTION that drives the gaming industry to provide wide support for a new resolution. Is it cool when a dev includes UWD support? Yes, absolutely. Do I and should anyone EXPECT them to cater to a niche that is accumulatively less than a fraction of their customer base? I certainly don't and IMO no one should intelligently expect that either.

Not really high end enthusiast or hardcore gamers, just older, more well off gamers who have gamed for a long, long time pn PC... And you're arguing for no reason. I didn't say it wasn't a niche market, but just look at how many models are being offered and how many more are coming out. Are you denying that 21:9 popularity hasn't been increasing steadily? There's been no big marketing push... it's all being driven by consumer desire, unlike 4k monitors which are heavily marketed.

Even at Best Buy, Hewlett Packard has a 21:9 All in One.

21:9 is gaining traction. It will never be mainstream just due to cost so again, I don't know why you're arguing that 21:9 hasn't gained in popularity with gamers and for productivity, it clearly is.

Please read my post again or at least, actually read it. I never argued that it is not gaining traction compared to before. My argument however, has always been that it is incredibly stupid to expect mainstream support for the resolution from developers when the resolution is barely being used.

Your question "incredibly niche?" implies that you do not agree and I simply provided you statistics that show it is incredibly niche. Could the resolution blow up as prices start to tank? Sure, that's how things become mainstream, they become affordable.

Additionally, the gaming industry always plays catch up. New tech and software always comes out before developers actually start incorporating said stuff into games. Point is, if you buy a niche product, expect very little mainstream support.

Well, regardless if being a niche market or not, I just hope it becomes a standard because 21:9 is really awesome when properly supported. Pretty sure all of you can agree with that biggrin.gif

As a 21:9 display owner, I definitely want to see that happen, though unless prices start falling fast, that's not going to happen anytime soon.

Perhaps you should actually read my first response to you. I never said I expected mainstream support, I only questioned your use of the word "incredibly". Yeah, when I first bought mine... perhaps you should look at the post dates in this very thread and see how incredibly niche 21:9 was among computer enthusiasts here and pay attention to how this thread has grown.

Steam Hardware Survey? I didn't want to sound rude before but LOL. You realize a great deal of those people will never even be able to afford a 21:9, and most people are still running dual core. It's stupid to suggest that their survey means anything to the actual enthusiast market. Half the people I know on steam are running non-gaming systems on Steam. That's hardly a gauge for interest among gamers and enthusiasts. How many of those people live in countries and can't even afford a serious gaming rig?

Again, you're just arguing for the sake of arguing. I never stated that I expected mainstream support, nor did I imply that 21:9 wasn't a niche market.
