    Obviously this projector is widescreen compatible. People having been telling me that some games do not support widescreen, so could loose vital areas of the game.

    Is this true?

    Thanks

    For games on my Z3 (via HDMI) that don't support widescreen- it just stretches them out to fill the screen - so you don't loose any part of the game. To be honest you don't really notice it after a minute or two.

    My friend has a Z2 and via VGA can run games in 4/3 mode so they are the correct resolution if they are not widescreen....................having said that Half life 2 in widescreen is just WOW....it adds so much more to the game
