Small Screen Area

[Post New]by Gingerfire on Feb 18, 09 3:57 PM
All the games I have played up to this point have filled my monitor. This one just is in the center. Is it supposed to be a small screen? I enjoyed playing and would buy it, but I am afraid the game will remain small instead of full screen.

Hi gingerfire

I dont know because I have opposite problem.


I am having a problem that with a 22 inch monitor everything is too big and not really a quality display - unless the graphics are not really a good quality anyway? I have bought 20 games in last 2 months and this one is really bad on graphics quality in my books. If I am being unfair then thats ok but please tell me how to fix it?

Govegril, I had the same problem with all the words being too large, I had to call AOL and they had me go into the "innards" and change the font sizes. Thanks for responding! Guess some others are having my problem:-( I thought I would check before I bought the game. Too bad, it was fun playing the "trial version!"

Mine worked fine for a while then it went to small screen and stayed that way. I am now unable to play it. It's just too small. I did not change my fonts or do anything to my computer. I hope they find a fix for this. Good game I would love to continue to play

Thanks also for your response gingerfire.

I guess this game must be a bit finicky.

I hope you get your problem fixed soon.

Are all of you sure that somehow you didn't change the game options to play in windowed mode?

I didnt change anything, worked fine when I did the trial, then bought it. The first time it worked ok, now the screen is small and in the middle of the screen, when I click on full screen it gets shaky and the game is side by side double screen.

Hi,, I read your forums to see if anyone else is having problems with Cate West, I downloaded it but it wouldn't come up, I tried 2 times. Now I'm glad it did't. May try again later, if it gets fixed.

If I am playing and minimise the game to read email or browse - yes it does go small screen- it does this and you have to check on full screen to restore it in options, however sayng that-
out of 50 games I have bought from BFG this is the only one that does this.

In the small 2 inch screen the graphics are better yes- they look crisper and more or todays times expectations but I do not want to play a game looking at a 2 inch square for good graphics.


The graphics in full screen mode are about what you expect from a game 5-10 years ago.

I really like the actual game and game play but the graphics have put me off progressing past the first episode- they are really that bad on my PC - and I have no complaint about any other HOG game I have bought from BFG- they all look modern and crisp.
I can only say on my PC in full screen mode the graphics in this game are terrible but every other game I have on my PC which are numerous the graphics are fine so not prepared to play around with my settings for just this one game.

I have had this problem too on a couple of games but solved it by going into the advanced settings on the graphics card(mine is Nvidia) and letting nvidia decide the display size instead of my monitor.
