I am having some minor widescreen issues. The text along the sidebar is overlapping and going beyond its 'box'. I have attached a screenshot to better show what I am talking about. Please note that I put it on a second, normal ratio screen and I did not have these same problems.

My widescreen resolution is 1920x1080. I am running Windows 7 64-bit.

Dave, do you want a DXDiag file or something?

Thanks

Chad

The message screen is doing it also.

Also, as a side note, is there a way to run BftB in windowed mode?

Thanks for the report, please do post a DxDiag file if possible.

Hi,

What font size (DPI) are you running at?

The game is designed for 96 DPI and you get wierd text issues if its not set to this.

BFTB wont run windowed, sorry.

I had the same problem when running fonts/display on 125%;
setting it back to 100% fixed the problem.

Going by Floyed above, sounds like that is my problem as my DPI is currently set to 125%. Is there a way to change this only for BftB and not for the entire computer? Tough to read the text when it is *that* small.

By the way, I tried editing the executable with 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings' and that did not work.

Thanks in advance

Chad

Chaning it for the entire system did fix this.

However, again, is there a way to change this for only one program?

This works: Make a Windows installation in a virtual machine (using Virtualbox, VMWare etc) and run that virtual machine in windowed mode.
I run it windowed/unity mode in VMWare Fusion on my MacBook Pro without a problem.
