Does anybody know of any games that support a 16:9 aspect ratio. With ATI now offering a solution to output component video I am investigating hooking up to my home theater projector.

TIA!

hmmmm
im sure that some games read the available resolutions off windows, so if windows contains oddball resolutions like 1280x768 or 16:9 widescreen ones then the game should run on them... should... mind you.

i know that Unreal Tournament has the resolution saved in its INI file. but i never tried changing it to an oddball resolution

Thanks for the reply. I don't think that a game gets it's resolutions from Windows. The video card determines what settings are available, but games must support a particular resolution for it to be used. I point to Diablo II which only offers 600 x 400 and 800 x 600. What I've learned from other posts is that Quake III and it's offspring support widescreen resolution. There's also talk of Unreal II doing so as well.
