Hey everyone, I hope you have been well.

So I recently installed the game on a new computer, using Windower. (I was on my old computer too)

First thing I noticed was characters (PCs/NPCs/etc) were a lot more skinny and taller than how the game ran on my old computer (Both are hooked up to same exact screen to run the game (TV)

I found out that this is adjusted with the "Background Aspect Ratio" found under Config>Misc. 2, which I can not seem to change when I am logged into the game on Windower on my old or new computers, here are some things I have figured out/noticed while trying to make it work:

So here is what is going on:

On my old computer (The one where the "Background Aspect Ratio" is the way I like it, when I'm logged into the game from windower, trying to adjust/change it does nothing.

On my new computer (The one that I don't like the "Background Aspect Ratio" on) same thing, I can't change it while logged into the game on windower.

Now, on both computers if I just log into the game with pol, I am able to change it, and it changes while I mess with the menu bag while logged into the game.

So, knowing that I was able to change it on the old comp somehow, and have it still show up the way I like when I log into windower, I tried changing it logged into the game on pol (I even did a save settings to server after) then logged into the game again via windower and loading saved settings. And it does not work.

Here's a strange thing though. On my lap top, when I'm logged into the game on windower...yup, you guessed it. I am able to change the background aspect ratio.

I'm assuming some setting is preventing me from doing so, but I can't figure out what it is.

Can anyone help?

Thanks for your time everyone

The config add-on will automatically adjust your aspect ratio, if you happen to have it running.

That was it, it was the config add-on.

I had a feeling it was something simple.

And now, my Taru is back to being short and fat, the way things should be.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply and help Arislan and Chaostaro

If I still want to use FFXI Config, but don't want it to do anything with the Background ASpect Ratio how do i go about doing that?

Under the config xml file do I set

<AdjustAspectRatio>true</AdjustAspectRatio>

to

<AdjustAspectRatio>false</AdjustAspectRatio>

This was just a guess. Or do I have to do something with the line underneath that or somewhere else, etc?

Thanks again

Looks like the line underneath lets me manually set it if i chose not to have it do it auto?

its set to 1.33333 by default.

How do I mess around with it? Do I just change the 1.33333 to the same/my preferred aspect ratio number that is in the game itself, under Misc. 2?

Thanks you

Yes, AdjustAspectRatio to false.

1.33333 = 4:3 (old standard)
1.77778 = 16:9 (4K, 1080p, 900p, 720p, etc)
2.33333 = 21:9 (ultrawide)

Why do you want your aspect ratio to not match your window size tho? Kinda weird.

Must just be because I am just so used to it being that way, I have had it this way since the Ps2 release came out.

What is the setting to have it at 5:4 ? (Max) under misc 2.

Also,

There is obviously no way to have them different for different characters if I am 2 boxing on the same computer?

For example I prefer my Taru's at 4:3 but my Dhalmel's at 5:4

Thank you again

The decimal is just the horizontal / vertical.

5/4 = 1.25


Code
    <global>
        <AdjustAspectRatio>false</AdjustAspectRatio>
        <AspectRatio>1.33333</AspectRatio>
    </global>
    <Character1>
        <AdjustAspectRatio>false</AdjustAspectRatio>
        <AspectRatio>1.33333</AspectRatio>
    </Character1>
    <Character2>
        <AdjustAspectRatio>false</AdjustAspectRatio>
        <AspectRatio>1.25</AspectRatio>
    </Character2>

Oh wow, there is a way, I almost didn't ask because I figured there was not.

Thank you so much Arislan,

Is it safe to assume "Character 1" and 2 are defined by in what order you open a windower window, and also log that Character into the game?

No, you change it to your character's names.

e.g. <Arislan> </Arislan>
