Basically, I have been playing Battlefield 3 at a competitive level for about 1 year. I used to play on my computer at home, but then I had to move to another country for studying and I decided to get a gaming laptop. I have a HD7970m on it. My problem is, I always played this game with a resolution of 800x600, and in game the aspect ratio was set at 4:3. I was able to switch to 4:3 by clicking on the button of the monitor. Now, that I am on a laptop, I do not have buttons that can help me. I can set an in game resolution of 800x600, but it looks strechted because, of course, is at 16:9. There is no option in game to change the ratio to 4:3, but I can only change the resolution. I tried everything from CCC but with no result. I tried to change the resolution to a no native one (800x600) and the set on properties in CCC preserver aspect ratio, but as soon as I go in game it goes to 16:9, while when I am not gaming it is at 4:3.
Any idea on how to fix this problem? I really need to find a solution ASAP because I am playing for my national team and we got through the group stage and I really cannot play at any other resolutions :/
Hey Mime, add this to the list of things I do not get "People in 2013 who think a game from the 21st century looks better when played at a resolution from the 20th century" as well as "People who choose to use a CRT instead of an LCD in 2013"
I can imagine... I shot one from a distance of about 10 feet with a 75lb compound bow a few years ago.
It bounced off and only spider-webbed the screen. I had to dodge to avoid getting hit with.... stuff. The glass in those things was crazy-strong. Then I thought to myself, "hmm... probably should have stood a bit farther away."

I've still got mine in the spare bedroom under some quilts, it's this one from Orion. I used to get such migraines when I would use it for extended times because of the flicker. I remember when I got my first LCD monitor, a Samsung something or other 1600x1200...Then most of the computers up at my university had huge Viewsonic 21 inch CRTs...
