Solved: Trying to run TDM in 1920x1080 on 32:9 monitor

Hello,

I'm trying to run TDM in 16:9 (1920x1080) on a Samsung C49RG94 32:9 monitor.
What I want to achieve is not widescreen play (which is working), but I want to play TDM in 16:9 centered with black bars on each side.

The PBP (picture by picture) of the monitor doesn't seem to support this (left or right side only, but not centered) and the monitor software "Easy Setting Box" also does not seem able to achive this.


So I'm looking for way to either run TDM in fullscreen or in window mode with black bars on each side.

In window-mode the two best programs I have found so far were listed here:
https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Borderless_fullscreen_windowed


- Borderless Gaming (not the also listed Windowed Borderless Gaming)
and
- Simple Runtime Window Editor
 

Both were capable to bring TDM in window-mode without borders and disabled windows taskbar in the center of the screen.
But the problem, that the rest of the desktop is still visible remains.

Is there any known way to run TDM in (preferred) full screen mode with black bars left and right so that it runs in 1980x1080 (or 2560x1440) in 16:9 on a 32:9 widescreen monitor?
Currently, if you set a lower aspect ration than that of the monitor, TDM stretches the display (Subnautica for example shows black bars in this case).

If that's not possible, is there any known way how to bring the window-mode to show black bars on the side or some comparable reasonable workaround (which doesn't require to delete every icon, permanently hide the taskbar and the set the desktop to black)?

Thank you very much!

Nevermind, it's always the easiest solution that occurs to one last.

I set the windows resolution to 1920x1080, which centers the screen on the 32:9 Samsung and TDM then is also centered with black bars.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
