Hi!
I installed gpl again after many years - so far everything is working well.
But i have one problem:
the game does not fit to the full screen, it does not reach from the left to the right edge of my display, there is a black border on each side (about 4cm).
There is also a border on the top and bottom with the pribluda-display.
I have a mac-book and i am running gpl on windows10.

Thanks for any help!

These are the screen captures of the G.P.L. sim menus/driving/replay.  The first three screens have black bars on either side (my capture program removes these bars) when viewed on a wide screen monitor with 16:9 ratio.  The fourth screen is displaying a patch to remove the top and bottom bars while driving.  The fifth screen is the replay screen with the bars left in to display important info readouts.  I do not use Pribluda.

The sim was originally released in 1998.  :)

Ok, so the black bars left and right are results of the different ratios of game and monitor. but there are also black bars on top and bottom - so the displayed space is realy small.

When the sim was released there were very, very few 16:9 monitors.
As you are driving, the display covers the entire 16:9 screen .... as long as you are using the No Black Bars Patch.
The replay screens also have a Patch to remove the bars, but I find the bars necessary to display the top and bottom info readouts.

Greg has already mentioned it.

You can use the "No Letterbox Patch" by Lee Bowden to remove to black bars on top and bottom

-> there are also screenshots
