Cropped Screen On Right During Gameplay

Hi all,

New to this forum as I got the itch to revisit a classic. After showing my stepson the first two Alien movies, I really wanted to get back into this game and relive my own youth!

Firstly, I'm delighted to see such an active community keeping this great game alive! Great job to all those involved! I've always preferred the second to the first yet it's the original AVP that gets all the love...

I had a few well-known glitches involving the mouse as well as the screen resolution since I installed. However, I seem to have fixed those thanks to advice in this forum.

Nevertheless, I'm still getting one particular issue where the right-hand side of the screen is cropped during gameplay as well as the opening screens before the main menu. It's very annoying as I lose about 3/4 of the screen.

That said, the pre-mission cutscenes run fine, which is weird.

I thought it was a resolution issue so I corrected that in the autoexec.cfg as well as the "WidescreenPatch.REZ". However, I'm still getting the problem...

I've also played around with DPI and compatibility modes but no success. However, I have disabled full-screen optimisation, which does have some improvement.

Anyone else had this? Any advice?

Running on AVP2AIO on Windows 10 64 bit. Let me know if you need any more info.

Many thanks in advance! Smiley

Welcome CP !

Have you tried installing MSP 2.4 ? (install that after AIO)

Then go into graphics settings.

MSP 2.4

It's an online patch! but also has many fixes.

Hi again x-M-x,

It didn't work at first but managed to fiddle with some compatibility settings and it now looks perfect.

For anyone else who may run into this issue:

Right-clicked on the .exe, went to compatibility.

Then "change high DPI settings". When the new windows opens up, I selected "override high DPI scaling behaviour" and chose the scaling to be performed by "application".

Works a treat now.

Thanks for your help. I'm going to enjoy a playthrough on an upcoming transatlantic flight in the dark!

Best,

CP
