Hi everyone!

One of my users has a tablet, and he wants to run this flight sim software on it, but it doesn't work right on his tablet because it requires a widescreen display to work properly.

Does anyone know of software that will force a resolution that the tablet normally wouldn't be able to handle? Everything I've tried detects that it can only do 1024x768 and lower.

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked for any video driver updates?

thanks for your reply.

I have checked. The problem is that the onboard video can only handle 1024x768 and lower... no matter what drivers I use. That's why I'm hoping to find software that will force a different resolution.
