If I play these HD movie externally (VLC or any other players) in full screen I see perfectly these videos without black bars and without any breaking.No dice. Also what do you mean fix the aspect ratio of the menus? They are 4:3 assets, the OpenGL patch intentionally adjusts them to stay at 4:3 to avoid them looking squished.
It sounds like, if it was working, it would make the gameplay and menus 16:9 by *breaking* the aspect ratio
This becouse these videos are in 1920x1080.
And the some for this video youtube:
where I don't see any problems in FullHD without blackbars.
This patch Allow to see the videos in the some conditions nothing more nothing less.
However to see the result just copy the files and see what happen.
Personally I found it usuful, but my is only a opinion ...
