    Random Whining About Dark Places

    Allow me to specify: any 16:9 resolution that doesn't make me want to tear my eyes out. I guess that would be a minimum about 480p 16:9. I use an LCD screen, but I frankly don't notice much difference between 720p and 768p, though that's probably because I'm not a technology freak like you, and I don't wank to images of GeForce GTX 690s.

    I'm using Windows (Windows 7, specifically). Darkplaces.exe, 64-bit variant. On the renderer, I'm frankly too inept to know specifically, but it's some form of GL. Finally, I use a Geforce GTX 260M.

    How exactly is 768p the minimal possible 16:9 resolution? Have you never heard of 720p? Also, either Dark Places is just shit at rendering lower resolutions, or it simply doesn't like my video driver, because my video driver is perfectly fucking fine.

    In the eyes of the developer: yes. In the eyes of the consumer: hell no.

    Every game released by Atari in the past two and a half decades or so sucked (with a few exceptions here and there), so I don't see how you could've possibly been disappointed by Enter the Matrix, unless you had no idea about the state of Atari at the time, or are insanely optimistic.

    Its gameplay still sucks shit through a swirly straw.

    Forgot to mention that 1366x768 does, in fact, appear, but I'm simply too picky to use it, as stated before.

    As I stated in my previous post, I prefer minimal widescreen settings (so this doesn't quite fit my tastes), and it's the source port, not my video driver which is the problem.

    Again, I have multiple source ports which stretch 720p to fill the entire screen, such as: ECWolf, GZDoom, Skulltag, EDuke32, etc. (I should also note to anyone who is wondering, I prefer to use the minimal possible widescreen resolution, because I use a laptop from 2009, and using the maximum possible widescreen resolution is slightly harder on my computer.)

    Exactly.

    None of the aspect ratios will touch the top or bottom of my screen, only center the image and surround the image with black borders. Also, yes, I do have the original DOS files, but I prefer not to use it, primarily because of the lack of 16:9 support, and the inability to keep mouselook permanently on. Well, there really isn't much difference in graphics between the two, except for the fact that looking up or down doesn't make things look warped, and my primary reason for using GZDoom is so I can look directly up and down.

    To Caffeine Freak: I'm sorry if this sounds asinine, but I'm not really sure what you're asking.

    I run GZDoom in 720p, and it scales to fill the screen. Also, the problem with the blurring was antialiasing, which, after finding the command to turn it off, made the textures just look blockier (which is ironically more appealing, and what I was looking for.) Also, my reasons for using source ports is as follows: More features, 16:9 internal resolution support, and not needing to open up DOSBox and rewrite the entire bloody Bible just to play a game.

    Kentuckids need more dakka

    I'm all for citizen ownership of firearms, but... are you fucking serious? What person with an IQ above 50 would give a child a gun and think, "Oh, this is a good idea." I mean, this wasn't even a family gun, this was the child's personal firearm, just... WHAT?! I don't think there are words in the English vernacular to explain how stupid that is! This is just another reason to be a misanthrope.

    I've tested the two, and decided to choose Qrack as my new source port to use. Thank you for the help.
