1600x900 only resolution that works
Serious Sam 3 1600x900 is the only resolution that works all others such as 1280x720 (which is the one i would rather prefer to play on due to decreased lag) and 1366x768 all play but i can only see in a square like view ( very hard to explain) i can also see through the mpa in front of me.

This is very difficult to explain but is there particular settings i should have on in order for me to play on lowered resolution

You could at least play in 1600x900 and lower your rendered resolution a bit. Check the advanced options for it. It's like rendering low res in your high res.
