I used to have this issue on a monitor and it turned out some monitors just can't do it. I know yours can though which is odd.. Did you try tinkering with your monitor's options via buttons? My current monitor has a options saying "maintain aspect ratio: yes/no"

Its pretty simple I just had a couple of friends that were having the same issue, all you need to do is put the following command line in the cs launch options: -nofbo -nomsaa (last one is not really necessary as what it does is just disabling anti-aliasing in cs which is not a big deal anyways) then restart cs and voilá back how it was before

But wait, isn't that monitor actually widescreen? If so, what's wrong with black bars? Assuming that you use a 4:3 resolution.

The problem I have is why would you describe this as 'problem'? The resolution you use is 4:3, the monitor you use ain't, hence black bars are the to keep a correct aspect ratio. It's an improvement, not a 'problem'.

Because they actually implemented that very improvement with THAT UPDATE.

Have you even changed the monitor settings so that it's not in aspect mode? Change it to fullscreen, problem solved.

i tried checking the option using the monitor buttons that didn't help either and my friend started facing the same problem after the update

Hey I know this is an old thread but I just got this new laptop and I would like to play 1.6 without the black bars on it. At this point i've googled the topic and tried everything: -Nvidia Control panel doesn't have the scaling options - launch commands don't fix it (-stretchaspect, -nofbo, -full, etc) - No 4:3 resolutons available the laptop is a lenovo ideapad y510p. Specs: Intel i7-4700MQ 2.4ghz Quad Core CPU 8GB ram GeForce GT 750M (Max res 1366 x 768) And I'm using the laptop monitor. If anyone sees this and happens to know of a magical fix please PM me. I'm thinking i'm stuck with black bars... not that big of a deal but i'm used to stretched :(

Dunno really. Many people, also me use black screen bars. Try changing monitor hertz too, it might effect it (for me it does)

2013-11-01 17:37
