    Right, just wondering if this is meant to happen, i run PGR3 on my 360 on 1024*768 and its done in a somewhat widescreen is there anyway i can change that to full screen?

    all games will be like that on a tft. PGR3 has issues of being incorrectly proportioned at 1280 x 1024 etc, but 1024 x 768or whatver it is, is the setting that is correctly proportioned.

    Is yours a 4:3 screen like mine, or a widescreen tft?

    To clarify, only 17" and 19" LCD monitors (of the non-widescreen variety) are 5:4 and therefore suffer a vertically stretched picture from a 4:3 source in certain games (such as PGR3). Widescreen monitors are 16:10 and can suffer similarly (stretched from 16:9) if the panel doesn't offer an option to maintain the aspect ratio.

    If its not widescreen then yeh. Just try playing PGR3 on a normal TFT split screen at 1024x768. Tell me your results, i am interested to see if you get the same as i did.
