    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with the resolution settings on this game. Any above 800x600 produce a black bar on the right side of the monitor. It's as if the picture isn't centered properly. On top of that, I tried enabling widescreen under the screen option to see if that would make any difference, and it doesn't work under any resolution. Anybody had this experience? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    There was a fix released for certain video cards, upgrading your VC game to v1.1. It was an official patch, but if you hunt around at somewhere like http://www.codenamevice.co.uk you should be able to find it :)

    I do have the most recent drivers for my mobo and video card. I also applied the patch to vice city to bring it to version 1.1, to no avail. Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I suppose I'm doomed to run it in 800x600.
