A guide to fixing the aspect ratio on widescreen displays.
About the problem By default Dark Sector runs in 4:3 aspect ratio no matter which resolution is set in-game. This causes the aspect ratio to be stretched in widescreen resolutions but with the following config file tweak you will be able to play the game at the correct aspect ratio without any stretching.
Solution This guide is for 16:9 displays but should work for 16:10 displays as well.
Step 1: Find DS.cfg in steam/steamapps/common/darksector/configs
Step 2: Open DS.cfg and enter the following above Graphics.FullScreenSizeX=: Graphics.DisplayAspectRatio=FullScreen4x3
Step 3: Below Graphics.DisplayAspectRatio=FullScreen4x3 add your resolutions, for example: Graphics.FullScreenSizeX=1920 (1366, 1280) Graphics.FullScreenSizeY=1080 (768, 720)
Step 4: Save and launch game and it will now run at the correct aspect ratio without any stretching
Note: although this guide says to use 4x3 (which is 4:3) that is actually the true 16:9 aspect ratio as the aspect ratio codes were mixed up when the game was ported to PC.
