In a bit more "wordy" way: I've been wanting to play FF7 and FF8 on my PC for quite a while now, but since I have a widescreen, the image gets stretched and looks horrid (I have only tried it with FF7 though). Is there a way to play not only those two titles, but all those old titles that don't have support for widescreen monitors without the image getting stretched and NOT having to play them in a window?
Edit: Dammit... topic title gets cropped all the time. Well, the title was going to be this one: "How do I play "normal sized screen" games on a widescreen?".
What's a CRT???

However, my friend has a 22" LCD monitor and his NVIDIA control panel has that option too, so I wouldn't draw any concrete conclusions from that.

In this case, my only hypothesis is that when the computer was first set up, if you have anything like HP, it would've asked if you are "casual user" or "advanced user". For "casual users", some of the settings, etc. in the control panel are "dumbed down", or as they call it, "simplified" (both of which are euphemistic for many settings being taken out of view so you don't accidentally screw something up)
(I'm still looking for a way to reverse this -_-)
And I actually agree with Atriel =p Just got new computer today, and plan on keeping the old one (2001, Pent.3 @ 933 MHz and 386mb ram) functional for stuff like this (especially since I foresee many VN compatibility issues in the future).

what this thread says seems otherwise...
