trust me: you really do NOT want to do that because you would see less than other players that way (small part of screen missing on left and right). If you still want to do it: read on.

• Options > Graphics > Change the resolution to "640x480" > Ok
• Options > Graphics > Check "4:3 Ratio Gameplay" > Ok
• Play!

CS2D is a 16:9 aspect ratio game (e.g. 1920x1080) since version whatever.
A 16:9 aspect ration can't be displayed in a 4:3 aspect ratio (e.g. 640x480) without EITHER showing black bars OR showing less.

The vast majority of users has 16:9 screens which is why CS2D's standard has been changed to 16:9. So switching to 16:9 already was a fix. Switching back to an uncommon aspect ratio would be dumb.

So either play with a 16:9 resolution or play with another one and either accept bars or that you see less. There is no magic way around this.

AFAIK some monitors are able to stretch their resolution, I played CS2D 800x600 in a 16:9 screen with no black bars.

Ugly solution though

@user Goo: How is that possible ?
I can only play 800x600 with blackbars (top and down) with 16:9 scaled to 4:3 .

@user SlimPT: Depends on your monitor and your video drivers. So you can either change this with a setting in your video driver software or directly with the settings of your monitor. Well.. or you can't if isn't supported.

Like user Goo said that will stretch everything horribly. It's not a good option.

But if you must...
I assume you would need to do this since CS2D has no aspect ratio settings:

1. Go in full screen with a 4:3 resolution.
2. Open your monitor panel (unless in laptop then IDK) by pressing the physical keys on your monitor.
3. Switch aspect ratio to 16:9 from most likely Auto.

Note that in such a weird solution moving will have different speed on either axis.
It's not recommended unless well you like 4:3 over anything else in this game and black bars scare you.
