I have a serious problem: up to now I played GPL using my old 24" HP monitor HP W2408Q with its native resolution 1920X1200@60Hz. The grafic card is a Nvidia GTX 660 Ti. The monitor was connected with a VGA/DVI connection to the grafic card.
Some days ago I got a new 27" monitor HP27XQ with a native resolution of 2560X1440@60Hz or 120 Hz.. The grafic card is the same (GTX 660 Ti). The monitor is connected by a Display Port cable to the grafic card. System is Win7/64.
The result is the following: on the old monitor GPL (and other 3D games) was displayed as expected without any problems at the highest resolution and the maximum FPS.
Using the new 27" monitor it is not possible to play GPL at the native resolution (2560X1440 @ 60Hz or 120Hz) or at reduced resolutions like 1920X1080 at all. The principal problem is that the 2D starting screens (only a 640X480 resolution I assume!) is not displayed correctly in that way that only approximateley the upper left quarter of the screens and the menues is displayed so that I am not even able to direct the mouse indicator to the "options" menue. So the VGA screens do not fit to the monitor size and are somehow decentralized. The only possibility is to type "esc" and "quit"..... So I am not able to adjust the resolution within the GPL options sub-menue. The same for other 3D games like the IL2 1946 series (also starting with low resolution cover screens and menue screens). Adjusting the resolutions in GEM+ has no impact onto this behaviour.
Following other gamer forums in the internet and on youtube this behaviour should have something to do with the centralization of screens with different resolutions. But up to now I did not arrive to resolve this issue.
The drivers for the new monitor are the newest ones available on the HP page. I checked also the drivers for the Nvida GTX 660 Ti. There are no newer drivers available for this card than the drivers on my system from 2014. The normal Windows mode (Win7/64) is working correctly at the native resolution of 2560X1440 @ 60Hz or 120 Hz.
Does someone know how to resolve this problem?
