Far Cry 2 Widescreen Issue

The Far Cry 2 Forums have word that widescreen support in Far Cry 2 is actually a cropped version of the 4:3 video, reminiscent of a similar problem, or design decision, from BioShock (story, story, and story). The Widescreen Gaming Forum is all over this, as is their way, and there are hopes for a fix for the just-released first-person shooter sequel soon, official, unofficial, or both. Thanks Ant and Voodoo Extreme.

The 4:3 monitor will always show more of a 3D scene


You are wrong, simple as that. I've already linked several sources to prove that.

If that's true, then what are you complaining about? I thought your problem was that the view in widescreen had been cropped? Also, read that sentence again. The whole thing, and think about it. There's a difference between horizontal and vertical FOV.

Your Wikipedia link is totally irrelevant.

16:9 is better than 4:3, this is true. Is one 'wrong' though, and what does this have to do with the field of view?
