KotOR widescreen scaling (1366x768)

Hi there, my first time on this site

TL;DR - need mod which would move the position of cursor by 17 pixels upwards and GUI mod to fit res 1366x785 (there already are some GUI mods for other resolutions) (EDIT: actually 1366x768 because that one is actually displayed). Or some creative workaround.

The problem with this game seems simple to an unprofessional eye (my eye) but may be challenging or impossibru in reality (due to cursor being HW accelerated; SW acceleration isn't an option as it moves only in the middle "square" if the resolution is too big and lags anyway)

KotOR, being an older game, doesn't natively support widescreen resolutions. There are some workarounds around this so you can set up custom resolution (found on http://www.wsgf.org/article/star-war...s-old-republic ) BUT there is one problem:

If you set height to be less than 785 pixels, the texts won't display correctly (= not at all). Say you have native 1366x768 res AND graphic card incapable of downscaling (which is 9 out of 10 cases). The only working option you have is to set up a custom 1366x785 resolution, which makes the game work without problems but results in the fcked up GUI (which should be pretty easy to correct for someone who knows the drill) and the tip of the cursor appearing 17 pixels under it's actual position (due to resolution being bigger than your screen is displaying).

Just so you can imagine it - say you float the cursor down over the menu options. Instead of different options to highlight when you actually run over it with with the tip of cursor, it highlights 17 pixels "later", when you already are in the middle - which can result in cursor appearing already in the other option while still highlighting the upper option box.


Don't know if I explained myself clearly but I trust many users have 1366x768 (or similar) and are experiencing this problem and many would be grateful if something could be done about it.

Would it be possible?

If not the cursor, can someone please at least set up a custom 1366x768 GUI? I'd be very grateful.
