I've installed the Craft Pack 1.6 and selected the option to not set the widescreen resolution and use the game default. However, the concourse is now stretched to fill my 16:9 1920x1080 screen resolution. Is there a way to set it back to the original unstretched 4x3 ratio?

Hello,
In your XWA directory, there is a file named "DDraw.cfg". Open it with a text editor (like Notepad) and set "PreserveAspectRatio = 1".
; PreserveAspectRatio = 0 (no) or 1 (yes)
; When set to 0, the display will be stretched.
; When set to 1, the aspect ratio will be preserved.
PreserveAspectRatio = 1

Ok that's great, thanks. Is this a global setting that will change everything to 4:3? Or can I set the resolution to 1920x1080 (say with xwahacker) and have the missions in 16:9 and the concourse in 4:3?

But thanks again for the quick response and all the work you guys do!

In this case, the missions will be in 19:9 and the concourse in 4:3.

There is also a setting in the "TgSmush.cfg" file (PreserveAspectRatio) that is used when a video is played.

After downloading the newest ddraw file it made my concourse go to 4:3. I was able to fix mine also, so thank you too!
