Hello. I'm writing this topic after the 2.10 update, on 12/22/2017. I loved the update. As a veteran player, it will take some getting used to, and some practice with HUD, but in general, a great update. But there is one thing.


The store was, I suppose, made for 16:9 screens. Since most people have those monitors or laptops, it's understandable you wish to make it as best as possible for the large part of the players.


But there are still some people, including me, that have 4:3 monitors. And for those people, the store is cut off and we can't see half of it. The most left column, with Dragon eggs and viking clothes and farm seeds and food is completely cut off. Only one half of the right column is visible. The display of the selected item is also cut off at half, and the only way to exit the store is by pressing ESC button on the keyboard.


It is very frustrating. Now, I may be wrong. Maybe there are people who have 4:3 monitors and still see the whole store. But I know I did everything I could to try to change that. My resolution is at maximum, I tried going full screen and exiting full screen, even reinstalled the game to see if that works. But nothing happened.


The store is very a important part of the game. Getting new Dragons eggs from it. Buying seeds and animal food from it. Buying new clothes, saddles, stables... Everything. So I really hope you make the store compatible for 4:3 monitors. Maybe just shrink it a little...?


I hope you update the store soon, or at least give me a reply on how I may fix it.

Here are all my Dragons, shown in order of bonding with them.


Skycutter, a Hideous Zippleback, is a shy and smart Dragon that preffers solitude. But that also means that I'm the only one in the world she really knows and loves.


Sharpwing, a Whispering Death, is an agressive Dragon that lives in the dark caves beneath Berk. On those rare occasions when I can find her, she is very distant and almost never allows me to ride her.


Sparkeye, a Skrill, is a wise Dragon that never fights and can solve every conflict.


Pepy, a Snafflefang, is a playful Dragon that hates work and usually plays with other Dragons in the Wilderness.


Lullu, a Gronckle, is the happiest one. She is always happy, no matter what.


Fireclaw, a Monstrous Nightmare, is a curios Dragon that loves investigating. Every time she finds something new, she has to know exactly what that is.


Saphira, a Shockjaw, is the competitive one. She loves Racing, and won't stop until she comes first ten times in a row.


Wavecalmer, a Thunderdrum, is the gentle one. She never fights with other Dragons, and helps everyone she can.


Brighteyes, a Deadly Nadder, is the strong one. She sacrifices herself for everyone, and never regrets anything.


Softie, a Hotburple, is the lazy one. She spends her days sleeping in the Stables, and it's impossible to get her out for a flight.


Shaphead, a Devilish Dervish, is also one of the wiser Dragons. If we're not flying together, she usually hangs out with Sparkeye.


Braveheart, a Mudraker, is the brave one. When he was only a hatchling, I rescued him from the Dragon Hunters. Now, with my help, in his heart there are flames of bravery that will never stop growing.


Shaggydog, a Night Terror, is the wild one. Even though he's trained and we have a very good bond, he doesn't like chains or cages and will do anything to stay away from those.


Frozen Heart, a Groncicle, is the spirited one. She usually spends her time at Icestorm Island, with her family.


Logi, a Typhoomerang, is the protector. He is extremly loyal to me, but is only dangerous if you try to hurt me, or anyone else.


Wonderwing, a Raincutter, is a cruel but fair Dragon. She stands for justice, and can be deadly if injustice is shown to her.


Lady, a Razorwhip, is an explorer. She loves exploring new islands and searching the sea. Unfortunately, she never plays with her sister Cersei.


Cersei, a Razorwhip, is full of anger, fear and sadness, because she never met or even saw her mother. She doesn't like other Dragons and other Vikings, and I'm the only one she trusts.


Frozen Soul, a Snow Wraith, is the guardian. She is the one that never sleeps at night, because she flies around with me, making sure that everyone is safe.


Summer, a Windwalker, likes to fly very high up to watch at everyone from above. While I can barely hold on to his back, he loves diving and making sharp turns between the clouds.


Princess, a Fireworm Queen, is a real drama queen. When she hatched alongside her 1 253 brothers, she walked right into my Stables. Of course, she had to roar all the time, because that's what she just has to do.



Natasha Romanova, a Sand Wraith, was born for races and killing. Fortunately, she's trained well enough to know right from wrong.


Ghost, a Screaming Death, is a real explorer. He likes to fly around and look for new islands with Lady.


Mockingjay, a Deathsong, is a lonely Dragon I saved from Melody Island. Since many Dragons are afraid of her, I'm always there for her.


Viserion, a Shovelhelm, is a proud, strong Dragon that protects everyone he trusts and kills everyone that betrays him. He's a great friend to have and your worst nightmare if you betray him in any way.


Daenerys, a Timberjack, is a strong, proud Dragon that takes what she wants, but still has a big heart. She's the breaker of chains and Khaleesi of the sky.


Sansa, a Shivertootth, is a young, happy Dragon with big dreams. If we're not flying around Icestorm Island, she is definetly somewhere near Ruff and Tuff.

Same exact problem! Hopefully this gets fixed soon. -.-



I’m sorry for everything I’ve done.

Yep. Same issue.


Downloaded version, on Windows 7 64 bit.

I am also using the 4:3 size ratio and I cannot see the two ends of the store.


I have mentioned this to Brynjolf and said that the isutation is the same on both fullscreen and windowed (although I took a screenshot only in windowed mode) and he claimed it was because I was not playing in fullscreen mode.


1. I mentioned it happens in both modes.

2. It should not make a difference if I play in windowed or fullscreen mode. The game offers both modes so it should work properly in both.

Have you tried to run the game with another resolution in windowed mode?

Hold down shift while start the game to bring up the config dialog where the resolution can be changed.

Most of the settings there will probably ignored but resolution still works.

I have tried it.

Turns out it wasnt on my native resolution but after setting it to my resolution.... it didnt change anything. The shop is still not fully visible.

Well, I actually thought you could set a 16x9 resolution with the width of your screen.

For example if you screen is 1280x960 (=4x3) you could use something like 1280x720 (=16x9).

(This may only work in windowed mode)

An option like that is not visible for SoD.
