      I use a 28:5 aspect ratio, and the HUD scales to about half my vertical resolution (like this). This... isn't ideal.

      I reported this issue long ago, as have other people. From my understanding, this aspect ration was fine with Dota 2 a good while back, but was broken by some patch.

      I don't really care if Valve is against such resolutions (nor do I care about people's opinions on the matter). The least they could do is announce their stance though. If they don't want people using such resolutions, then fine; I'll know not to continue asking for it, and move onto some other game.

        I just bought an Acer 29" UWD and sucks that even with the fix, the UI still looks out of wack and spell icons are ridiculously huge.

        It would help if there's a post somewhere, reddit, here, wherever, that signifies that Valve doesn't support UWD (21:9, etc) with the game so we can just let the issue rest instead of bringing it up every now and then. Then again, we're the minority. In the mean time, anyone know how to force the game to run with black borders? I try 1920x1080 and its stretching regardless what I do.

          If you use windows, the trick is to go into your GPU settings and tell it to keep the aspect ratio. For some reason at least Nvidia decided that the default setting should be that it always scales whatever resolution you use to use the whole screen but it can be turned off. The options are usually:

          1. Scale to full screen (ignoring aspect ratio, probably this you have which is bad)
          2. Scale to full screen while keeping aspect ratio (this is what you want)
          3. Do not scale at all but center the picture, This is also an option if you make sure you have the correct resolution but I'd just select number 2 for simplicity.

          I'm on linux where it isn't as easy so currently I have to use windowed mode which results in a very glitchy experience : /

            Is 21:9 that common? I mean, they don't even care about 5:4 HUD gliches.

              I got a brand new 21:9, too.

              @Devs: Can you support it, please? Seems to become more and more common these days.

              If I set the graphics mode to 2560x1080 my graphics card only needs 37% of its max power (but I can't as stated play the game properly), if I set it to 1920x1080 the graphics card is funnily at 61%.

                  They banned override_vpk, so one can't play online anymore. Great work!!!
                  To ensure match integrity, using -override_vpk is not permitted when matchmaking

                    -enable_addons works just as well as -override_vpk. Use it. Please change the 1st post to suggest it as well

                      I mean, by choosing a different aspect ratio you can win or lose vision in some directions, so that can give you some advantage or disadvantage (i.e. wider screen can help you in an horizontal chase, pushing top, defending bot, checking runes, etc). Maybe some games are just not made for some aspect ratios or multi-screen setups.

                      I remember some Warcraft 3 tweaks that allowed you to "zoom out" (just like the dota 2 spectator zoom out) giving you a massive vision, it was clearly cheating.

                      It is still cheating.

                      • Okay, the fix no longer works T_T. Have to play 1920*1080 ;(

                        • yup having the same issue, it's the new year beast UI that is covering the shop and everything now.

                          It's okay though, game still in beta, give it time guys.

                          • Same thing, waiting for another patch

                            Comment


                            • All the recent patches broke the fix. Even when they reverted the UI from that New Year skin to the default, it's still messed up. Anyone have word of any recent changes regarding the fix?

                              What's more, you really can't fully utilize the beast upgrade box at the beginning of the matches when entering the Year Beast Brawl. I really do wonder why they can't just fix this.

                              Update: Fix is working again after the recent Steam patch this evening.

                              • I've tried replacing the fix and it doesn't work. How did you manage it to work? Now we have to use enable_addons instead of enable_vpk, did you change this?
