Mainly 1920x1200. 1920x1080 cuts a bit of screen on both sides putting you in a slight disadvantage, a 1920x1200 support would be great for those of us who use 16:10 monitors.

Thanks!

Which reminds us that monitors with a 16:10 aspect ratio are an abomination and should never have been invented...

Actually you have no idea what are you talking about.

First of all 16:9 is TV STANDARD FOR MOVIES. Movies. TV.

16:10 is for display monitors. However, because of huge popularization of 16:9 on notebooks it became a standard for PC display monitors too. Which is one from biggest mistakes ever.

On a 16:10 display monitor is more natural to read articles and also, you have bigger view in games, where in 16:9 you have not.

And yes, you are wrong.

PS. I'd like to see support for 16:10 too, but it's not like letter box annoys me. I'd honestly way more like to see coop online on PC.

Oh, so maybe let's try this way. Quotes from Wiki:

Quote
16:9 is an aspect ratio with a width of 16 units and height of 9. Since 2009, it has become the most common aspect ratio for sold televisions and computer monitors and is also the international standard format of HDTV, Full HD, non-HD digital television and analog widescreen television.

And here is about 16:10:
Quote
16:10, also known as 8:5, is an aspect ratio mostly used for computer displays and tablet computers. The width of the display is 1.6 times its height. This ratio is close to the golden ratio "\varphi" which is approximately 1.618.
LCD computer displays using the 16:10 ratio started to appear in the mass market from 2003. By 2008 16:10 had become the most common aspect ratio for LCD monitors and laptop displays.

And now MOST IMPORTANT:
Quote
Since 2010, however, 16:9 has become the mainstream standard, driven by the 1080p standard for high definition television.

16:9 is a TV standard, dude. Deal with it Tongue

Regardless of the above, you can manually set the resolution by editing config.txt in
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Spelunky\Data

That should solve your problem.

Don't be stupid. It's as much a monitor standard, too. Read all your arguments and you'll see that you defeat yourself with them LOL

This thread is a mess of argument over semantics, so I'm locking it.
Feel free to make a post in the appropriate area, where Derek will hopefully take notice and fix up said 16:10 support. Smiley
In the meantime, Stray Cat has provided a solution, just up two posts. Wink
