    Can anyone give me some recommendations for a 42" wide flat screen. I've tried various settings but can't seem to get the right balance to give me a realistic driving position.

    Pete,

    a little bit more info would be useful.

    What is the maximum resolution this monitor can cope with ?
    Maybe 1920 is the max, so I would stick with it (XRes).
    The YRes is personal preference, maybe 768 is sufficient.
    No problem with the appropriate settings in RichardBurnsRally.ini and FixUp (fullscreenWindow=1, fixAspectRatio=1,centerMenu=1 ect).

    This will enable you to see a wider scenery, useful in sharp corners.
    You should close all other Desktop windows and set the Windows Desktop background to single color, black.

    My screen is normally set to 1920 x 1080 and the richardburnsrally.ini as follows:
    [Settings]
    ConstantForceMultiplier = -60
    Depth = 32
    ForceFeedback = true
    Fullscreen = true
    MinDepthBits = 24
    MinStencilBits = 8
    ParticleQuality = high
    RenderQuality = high
    RunIntro = false
    RunStartup = false
    Sound = true
    UseCubicEnvironmentMaps = true
    UseEAX = false
    UseSoftwareAudio = false
    UseTripleScreenBuffers = false
    WaitRetrace = true
    XRes = 1024
    YRes =768

    However this setup doen't give me an aspect ratio (if that's the correct expression) that I feel comfortable with for driving. I have a black background on my desktop.

    RichardBurnsRally.ini (only changed values listed):
    [Settings]
    Fullscreen = false
    UseTripleScreenBuffers = true
    XRes = 1920
    YRes = 1080

    FixUp.ini
    [Settings]
    fullscreenWindow=1
    fixAspectRatio=1
    fixVSync=1
    vSyncActive=1
    centerMenu=1

    This would be the recommended settings.

    Maybe try YRes=768, this lets you see more of the scenery but leaves a small unrendered area at the bottom of your screen.
