how to get tsukihime fullscreen for vista

Unread post by onizukaeikichi » November 23rd, 2007, 9:33 am

i know that the game installer isnt compatible but i am able to run tsukihime on vista. But its on the 800X600 size and my screen reso is 1600Xsomething. Its really small and i tried playing with the tsukihime.exe shortcut options like setting it to be maximixed but there's no effect to it.

On xp, even i am on the 1024 X 768 reso, the game itself will be fullscreen without me doing anything (which is good)

I need help since i am a newb with vista, if not the worst is that i have to set my reso to 800X600 when playing tsukihime :x

thx in advance

Does the "F" shortcut not work for Vista?

Not ctrl-f, just f. See also the readme?

tsukihime was installed on my laptop so i cant try now, ctrl + f works fine for me, but the pictures are stretched up since i am using widescreen 1600X1050. I will try f as well, see if it cures the stretch thing. Characters look fat =/

ok i tested, the characters does look a little bit stretched, maybe its just me =P. The f works as well. Is it suppose to look stretched on a widescreen monitor? I played tsukihime on my old comp, non widescreen, perfect for the 800X600 reso so i can see the difference.

The stretching is not the fault of Tsukihime or ONScripter, it is your videocard being incompetent. ONS changes the resolution to 640x480, and your GPU decides that that resolution looks good when it is stretched to fill your entire screen. Your screen does not have a 4:3 aspect ratio however, so the image is stretched out of proportion. Many laptops have a setting to disable this zooming in their BIOS. For a desktop, your best chance is to try to disable it at the driver level (although some very expensive LCD panels are capable of disabling it themselves). For nVidia drivers, go to the nVidia control panel, enable advanced settings, disable "treat as HDTV" in the "Manage custom resolutions" page. Then go to "Change flat panel scaling" and select "Use NVIDIA-scaling with fixed aspect-ratio" or "No scaling".

I have no idea... Try reinstalling your video drivers in non-Japanese locale?

try going back to the English locale (temporarily)
[in the case that you forgot how to: it's in Control Panel > Regional and Language (meh, type in "locale" in the search bar.) then find it from there.) ]

if it's still in Japanese, then re-install Forceware (drivers)
if it isn't, then do what you have to do (aspect ratio thing.)

once that's done, go back to the Japanese locale settings then run the game.
idontknoW has left this forum, that is all.
use the YM / Mail buttons if you need to contact me.

thx idontknoW, i followed Message's instruction, i changed the scaling part but the custom resolution thing i couldnt find. Anyway, Tsukihime looks fine now and i noticed it doesnt affect my vids or anything. Does setting to the fixed scaling have other effects?

thx for help

edit : i noticed that it has also affected melty blood as well. For a fighting game, seeing the black bars on the side isnt pretty :? looks like i have to reset the scaling thing when i play melty blood.
off topic, do you guys find the black bars on the side annoying? Or you guys prefer to see inflated characters =p

The scaling setting affects every application that changes the image resolution. So naturally MB is also affected. As for the sidebars, personally I don't see how they could possibly be more annoying than a farked-up aspect ratio... But I've got zooming disabled entirely, so low resolutions are surrounded by a huge area of black. Zooming makes the image very unsharp.
