Has Anyone Ever Successfully Gotten a 480p OgXBox Game To Run In 16:9 Widescreen?

Recommended Posts

If you check out the wiki list for original Xbox games that support widescreen, you'll see a  shit load of games that supposedly support 16:9 widescreen in proper unstretched aspect ratio, though most at only 480p.  Well, I have a modded Unleash X OGXbox and have never been able to do it, despite fiddling with every setting I can find - from the OGBox's original dash to the display settings in Unleash X.  Nada.  Nothing works.  The few games like that Incredible Hulk one that were released in 720p have no problems with proper 16:9 widescreen but all these others that supposedly support it just don't work.  I even messed with the various aspect ratio & zoom settings on my Vizio 42" E420i-B0 Smart TV and no joy.  Just curious: has anyone here managed to do it?  I can easily live with those black bars on either side it's just that it would be nice to have 16:9 on all 480p games that supposedly support. it.

Just enable wide screen from the dashboard, and check that your TV is in 16:9 mode.

Note that in wide screen mode the internal resolution is still 640x480 (or 720x480 in some cases), but the viewport is now squished horizontally by 75%. This way it'll return to correct ratio when it gets scaled to the screen.

Also note that in many games the HUD doesn't get the 16:9 treatment, which means that a circular map or speedometer in the corner of the screen will still appear in 'wrong' ratio.

      Just passing this information on: I've just got word that FatXplorer 3.0 beta 1 has just been released for testing!

      This contains the long-awaited support of OGXbox disks!
      This means no more being restricted to FTP transfer speeds to fill your disks- you can drag and drop using the ordinary Windows interface. Some features are not yet supported such as: formatting. This means you would still need to format your disk first via your XBox using XBPartitioner, then connect it to your laptop/PC.
      I have noted that it does appear to support opening raw backup images, although NOT compressed ones (notably the XBMCOrigins torrent, as that comes in a custom .imgc compressed format due to being backed up by HDDRawCopyTool.). Also note that the final version will be pay-for software, although in my opinion well worth it. I've been using the 2.5 version for years for managing my 360 disks and love it.

      Hi guys, newbie to the forum. I've just ordered an Xbox One X and am now looking at a few games to go with it. Keen to buy Skyrim and Forza Horzon 3 (interesting contrast I know). The local game store has a deal for 4 Xbox 360 games for $20. Skyrim and Forza Horizon 3 are included in the deal, while their Xbox One counterparts are triple the price. So my question is, is it worth paying extra for the Xbox One version vs the 360 versions considering they are both "Xbox X enhanced"? Hope that makes any sense. Thanks to anyone with any advice &/or knowledge on the subject. Cheers
