Standard-def TV users having issues with tutorial text cutoff?

#1 Posted by HTTenrai (241 posts) -

I have an HDTV, so this is a secondhand report, but my coworker has noted that a good 3/4ths of his tutorial text on the top of the screen is clipped off, and he can't read it. Switching between composite and S-Video didn't change anything, either.

Anyone else experience this? Maybe even have a fix?

I'd guess he should try to change his screen size settings on both the TV and the Xbox. I can't imagine it being because it's an SD TV, but because his screen size settings are wrong.

Is it set at widescreen on his Xbox? It probably shouldn't be.

Was he playing in fullscreen?  After you switch to the video source check to see if the tv has a menu option to change the aspect ratio to 16:9. Use it and make sure the 360 is set to widescreen as well.  If the tv doesn't have the option, then I don't know what to tell you.

yea having the same problem. It is really frustrating when games don't really accomodate sdtv still. Need a new tv. Have just started fable 2 so am hoping to get past most of the tutorial stuff once i learn whats going on and it wont be as big an issue. Quests still show up mostly ok because its only really the heading that gets half cut off. I blame Molyneux!

I'm in standard and I haven't noticed this at all.
