Summary0002237: Crop menu to 4:3 in widescreen resolutions using black bars
DescriptionThis proposed feature would, instead of stretching the menu to fit the screen in a widescreen resolution, draw it in the center of the screen using a 4:3 resolution with the same vertical dimension as the selected resolution (for instance, in 1920x1080, the interface would be rendered in 1440x1080), and draw black bars in the empty space to the left and right. This is the reverse of letterboxing--cropping the sides of a 4:3 image to display correctly in 16:9/16:10. I think this would be a very useful addition as not all all widescreen monitors have the capacity to pillarbox 4:3 resolutions to display correctly.

Note that this would crop the interface (which is designed for 4:3 and looks terrible on widescreen monitors) and not the actual gameplay, which would be drawn in the chosen resolution as normal.
