I play lots of pinball on my PC and I turn my monitor to play in vertical 9x16 resolution and play in a cabinet mode. I fired up TGC2 in this vertical setup as golf would seem to be more suited to a vertical monitor. Everything works great and I can choose my resolution of 1080x1920. The golfer is a little out of the picture, but you can see his shoulder and that is enough to achieve the tempo swing. Another plus is the hole is bigger on the screen.

Video below shows this black box that appears after each shot. Any way to fix this? It would need fixed anyway for furure mobile use. :)

That looks like playing in tunnel vision...give me my 50 inch screen horizontally any day.

You turn your 50" screen sideways. :) I was using my 27" monitor for this.

Oh, I know what you are doing but it is like looking down through a cone as for FOV

Also looks like it did something horrible to your golfer's outfit.

I still hope a dev looks at the video in the first post and would tell me if they can get rid of the large black boxes for me. It is a different view. :)

Do you get the black box when the monitor is horizontal?

There is no Support forum listed under TGC2 Forums, so it appears that getting a dev to look at a thread is near impossible.

If a dev could look at the video in the 1st post and tell me if they would/could fix this black box issue I would appreciate it. It's not hard to test, just switch to portrait mode and choose a res setting in TGC2 for a 9x16 res. You don't even have to turn your monitor to test it, just look at it sideways. :)

I just tried it. It was kind of a pain, but no real problem. I switched my monitor to portrait and set resolution at 1080X1900. I then called up TGC2. Went to the driving range. Only did 1 shot, but the black box appeared and remained for 10 seconds or so while the range was loading. Then after the 1st shot, the black box appeared very briefly and then I was ready for the next shot.

So it appears this is not unique to your system. And I'm not a dev. I'm hoping a moderator will bring it to the attention of the devs since it is reproducible.
