First of all id like to say that ive used search in forums about this and theres not much talk about it, and no further discussion as such monitors are rarely used even by steam statistics show that most people still on 1920x1080 , at 60hz or 120hz or 144hz , im useing Curved QLED Quantom Dot 49 Inch HDR1000 5120x1440 at 120hz with Freesync 2, The Samsung C49RG90

Ive seen people request 21:9 and 32:9 Support for more than a year ago, as a 32:9 Super Ultrawide user, id like to see support for it
at the moment world of tanks uses 16:9 Aspect ratio rendering and stretches it to 21:9 and 32:9 

Kinda shame to buy this and not have it supported (yet) but games from year 2002 and upwards seems to support it just fine
Meaby its becose its an Esports game that they dont let you have advantage with wide monitor, Overwatch for example has their game stretch to ultra and super ultrawide aspect ratios, and they say they wont support wider monitors cose of Esports, i wonder if the same case in WOT. and is there any people here who could look at the config files or somehting to fiddle with the graphic settings in a way to use 32:9 Properly ? im sure it can be done? is anyone useing modified config file to let you play with aspect ratios other than 16:9? is it allowed? can it be downloaded somewhere? or can some teach me how to change it, cose i couldnt do it on options


And yes i know i could play it in windowd mode in a 1920x1080 16:9 aspect ratio or 2560x1440 in 16:9 Aspect ratio, but meh, i kinda dont want to play at all if i cant use 32:9 , i can play other games in the meanwhile, theres more to do than just play wot


Final Word, i have no mean to make this sound like a complaining and whining post, im just seeking for troubleshooting from the community and i want to discuss about your opinions about do you think Widescreens are fair or unfair , and should be allowed or disallowed like in overwatch? this is not a Support or feedback topic, this is General Discussion as i want to talk about it with the community in an open topic

Wouldn't 21:9 actually be called 7:3?

 

(also playing windowed btw on my wide curved monitor)

21:9 works fine with me..

 

32:9 I don't know, but I remember that before they were supporting 21:9 I had to change something in a file to force it,maybe it works also in 32:9. Just search for it in past threads.

for those who dont understand the advantage of having a wider screen, you see more, this is how it looks like when the image does not stretch on the screen, and works normally, you literally see more

in terms of video game its no advantage at all. you need to move you head and eyes a lot further to notice things which makes reaction speed slower.

thats why most pros and tournaments  use 24 inch monitors so they can see everything quicker.

When you get used to sitting in front of large wide screen you don't want to go back watching 24"

And that reaction being slower is complete non sense. I react in FPS games just as well in visual Q and audio Q with this resolution.

Got two like those upstairs; an old Frontech portable colour tv, and a LaCie 22 Electron Blue IV (2048×1536).

I would think it is very far down on the "to do" list

as you stated yourself: it is very rare in gaming situations.

 

I do know some games like Elite Dangerous and the latest F1 simulator support such displays

as that's where you have most use for it.

 

you could set the specific resolution and aspect ratio in the preferences.xml file for starters and test

but I'd highly suggest to set the FOV to 70-90°

I used to think 24er would do. Now daughter bought herself a 27" curved and I am thinking of quitting smoking to get one.
