There is an option for monitor scaling in CCC, you just have to find it. I can't remember off the top of my head what menu it's under but it's probably under one of the monitor menus.
Ok, I was wanting to play Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (never played it before, scored a copy for almost nothing).. and it plays great on my PC at all ultra high (it is a very old game now).
But..... there is no way to set it up properly for widescreen.
Everything is stretched wide... like this is the Klumps version of Max Payne.
I went through everything in the AMD Vision Center (CCC) and could find nothing to adjust my HD 5670 to a narrower desktop than my monitor- it stretches by default.
I checked my monitor setting and there are no "vertical and horizontal size" options.
And I know this can be done- when I connect my old office Dell laptop to this monitor it has a cropped desktop until I change the desktop resolution, then it stretches automatically.
So.... what is out there (free) that will let me do this (put black bars on sides of screen to make my monitor standard format)?
I do have a standard format monitor I use, but it is off to the side (no desk space) and does not work with my speaker/keyboard/mouse set up to play games.
"Maintain aspect ratio" will display the game in the center of the screen using whatever resolution the game uses. If the game is 800x600 the game will be drawn using the center-most 800x600 pixels of the display.
EDIT: From AMD's website:
Reason to use GPU Scaling:
With GPU Scaling, a user can configure an image to take advantage of:
-The highest picture quality available by using the image’s native aspect ratio
-The full display area by stretching the image to fill the display
-As much of the display area as possible while trying to maintain the highest quality picture possible

The setting for staying in the center is 'Use Center Timings'
