yep was over at the microcenter this morning and they have been told to stop selling and send all x34 monitors back to acer they have been recalled, so you guys who have this half working thing keep it if that will make you feel better lol.

Clearly there is a language barrier so let's put it this way and make everyone happy:

 Acer has "recalled" all unsold monitors back for a hardware upgrade.

 

 

(Want to call it a partial recall while we're at it? :p)

I hate repeating myself, but I can't help it: out of all my games, I can literally only spot the scan lines by looking directly at the clouds in Watch Dogs - and even then I'm only seeing the lines because I know exactly what to look for.

I'm heading off to work this morning, but I woke up early and spent thirty minutes 'playing' The Witcher 3. I was really searching for scan lines. Plain and simple, The Witcher 3, maxed out, is gorgeous on this monitor, just gorgeous, and there are no visible scan lines whatsoever.

I'm not speaking for anyone else... only myself... but although I can see the lines while running the pendulum demo, in-game (at least for me) this is a complete non-issue. When I get home from work tonight I am immediately going to delete that damned pendulum demo. I wish I'd never seen the bloody thing.

I'm in the same boat as you. Is there different severities of the issue?

I'm definitely NOT arguing that the lines are acceptable. They shouldn't be there. That said, for me to notice them I have to lean right forward and stop moving in any game I'm playing and only then can I faintly see them (for example I have to really stare at the clouds in AC: Unity. I've never 'naturally' spotted them, if that makes sense. I can definitely tell they're there in the pendulum demo.

I almost wish I'd never read about the issue, because otherwise my monitor has been just what I wanted so far. I'm past the 14 day return date, so unless Scan would accept it as a fault I don't have a choice on whether to keep it. Part of me is OK with that as I'm 99% sure in a week or two this will (hopefully) never bother me again.

Again, I'm not arguing that it's right - or that people aren't having more severe instances of it. Just my experience.

Its really your call...if you honestly plan on keeping the monitor for 3-5 years then yeah I would try and get it fixed....if your the type to always chase the latest and greatest.....then stop looking for scan lines all day !!!!!! Everything has issues. Even if you got a monitor crafted by the gods handed down in a sacred moment.....your still going to have texture pop in games, the lights will still flicker, your going to have glitches, they will hard lock games at 60fps for whatever reason. 4k is looming on the horizon. Windows 10 is going to crash your rig after updates, some punk kid is gonna hack steam and shut down the servers....(do I need to keep going) nothing is perfect. If it was created by a human being its ultimately flawed in some fashion.

Unbelievable. For many of us, Fallout 4 will be our first brand new triple-A title with our new monitor - and the early word is that 21:9 is NOT supported.

Here's a fix posted by someone at Neogaf. Note: I haven't tried this yet, since my game is still locked on Steam.


21:9 INI tweak:

How to add 21:9 (ultrawide) support.
To have this game run in 21:9 without issue simply open Fallout4Prefs.ini in your documents (C:\Users\[name]\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\), and change the following lines to how they are below:

bTopMostWindow=1
bMaximizeWindow=1
bBorderless=1
bFull Screen=0
iSize H=XXXX
iSize W=YYYY

Where XXXX is whatever your horizontal resolution is aand YYYY is whatever your vertical resolution is.


Next do the same for the second Fallout4Prefs.ini located in wherever you insalled steam then steamapps\common\Fallout 4\Fallout 4.

Currently the hud will stretch, but this is a good start and hopefully the hud can be fixed (i'll look into it).

My previous monitor was a Dell 2560x1080 display, so I'm used to this by now. Still, I expected Bethesda to get this right. Looks like we'll be playing with a stretched HUD. Oh well.

It's lame, isn't it. My hope is that while I finish off playing Witcher 3 someone can come up with a more comprehensive fix for Fallout 4.

Did this about 7 hours ago and it's been working fine. You only need to change the res though, and you only need to do it to the one file in my documents.

A smaller hud would be nice.

You literally change the res in the ini and it works fine.

You literally change the res in the ini and it works fine.

Thanks.

It astonishes me that Bethesda couldn't delegate one person to make 21:9 accessible from the options menu, and also to fix the HUD.

21:9 is gaining in popularity. Three years ago I would've understood it. But not now. Not at all. Thanks for letting us know it works.

The UI is messed up - see the annotated images here:
