Environment disappears in windowed mode with widescreen

I play CoH in Windowed mode so I can switch back and forth to the desktop easily, and I've hit a strange graphical bug. If the screen aspect ratio is too wide, the world geometry simply vanishes. I can see other characters and scenery props, but most of the world simply goes blank.

 

I can reproduce this issue easily by simply shrinking the vertical axis of my window; if I go to an aspect ratio much wider than my monitor, the game graphics blink out. It appears to be related to Field of View, which you can see in one of my album images: If I set the FoV super low and go to a wide ratio, I can get some world graphics to appear.

Hi all, I'm hitting the same exact issue.  It is related to Field of View.  Enabling it (automatic, default setting) does not give me enough depth so if I disable it and set the FoV I get the same environment graphics issues as the BrightGreenLine.  Help!

I haven't run into this.  Then again, I'm not REALLY playing wide-aspect ratio.  And only play Windowed because of my goofy setup and how Windows 10 doesn't differentiate between game resolution and desktop resolution.

 

So I get other issues.  Like finding out how wide the letterboxing is in cut scenes.

 

Resolution: 6480x3840.

It definitely seems to be tied to the aspect ratio. I don't think the developers ever planned on people using triple widescreen monitors :)

 

I downloaded the source code and have been digging through to see if I can manually override the FOV, but haven't found anything.

4k should be fine as it's 16:9

can anyone confirm?

 

My setup's just ever so slightly taller than 16x9

16x9 for 6480 is 3645.

 

For the picture above?  You're probably having it conk at roughly 3240.

4K is 3840x2160.
