From 4:3 to 16:9
So I play this game on 1024x768 resolution and settings on low because my laptop is utter ♥♥♥♥. But there is one thing that bugs me a lot and it´s that I for some reason can´t change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9.
I went to options and change it to 16:9 and nothing happened, still 4:3 in-game.

So how can I fix this? Any help?

You're playing in a 4:3 resolution. Try a 16:9 resolution.

Try this:
Open the console with ~ and type in:
setres 1366x768
then press enter

Ok I tried that but then my fps sank to intolerable level (bad laptop I know).
Is there a way to have sort of custom 16:9 resolution with width being 1024?
Since in both resolution 1366x768 and 1024x768 the height is the same so that should be then changed (if said thing even works)

I looked it up and it's a very obscure resolution. Regardless, I guess it's worth trying out.
1024x567

Did not work. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ed. Oh well rather tolerable fps with 4:3 than 16:9 ratio with unplayble fps.

Well i dont really know whats the benefit going to 16:9 on bad computer other than that you can see more from the sides, kinda like having a higher fov.

Like if you go 16:9 with same width, lowering the resolution from 4:3 imo you gain nothing because you'll see targets at distance less clearly which is important in ro2.

If you're playing on a weak system regardless of it being a desktop or a laptop (in this case). What you should worry about is nothing other than the frames. It obivously looks much more comfortable, but thats a luxury that your system isn't going to handle. Heck if that means playing on 800*600, you should go with it, If that means guaranteeing your solid 30s and above. If not then don't even think about turing that resolution up, you're just going to further increase your disadvantage (something that you already have). Increasing the fov also degrade fps, and that's something you probably already know.

Already doing that. Played in 800x600 and then turned it up to 1024x768 and it stays at somewhat comfortable 40-50 most of the time. I was just wondering since other games I play (those that my craptop can run) I play in 16:9 so it having to play in 4:3 just feels so weird.
But I should be getting a correct desktop soon so I can play this fine game in all its glory.
