Ok, I have the 2.35 screen and anamorphic lens, I will have an XBOX one and PS4. For some reason I can't find good threads or info on gaming in 2.35 on a console for a beginner. I would like to avoid a PC solution if possible.

Can you advise me on the path you would go down? I know the consoles don't have the right aspect ratio, but could I clip a little here with something (don't know how to do this) and stretch a little there (NLS or lens) and maintain an image that doesn't stretch things weird or cut off key game info?

Any guidance appreciated, apologies if I missed the thread that relates.

Yeah, with any console game, you run the risk of cropping off the HUD overlays or other important video information. You could just stretch the picture without cropping, but that will probably look weird on most games. (Some may fare better than others, depending on the content.) Generally, it's easier to just play in 16:9.

You need to go the PC route to customize a game to render in 2.35:1.

How is Non-linear stretch with a lumagen. Is it worth the price of the lumagen? Any way I can do it for cheaper?

If your primary interest is video games, I'd think that a non-linear stretch would very badly distort your perception of where things are happening on screen and how much control you need to aim/steer/whatever in the appropriate direction.

Yeah, for games I think you'd be better off just doing a normal stretch.

I've never used NLS on my Lumagen so I can't comment on that.

Thanks guys, I will try normal stretch for a while using the lens. Can anyone recommend a rack mountable HTPC (component size) for gaming that I can buy with changeable aspect ratios and not custom build. I would also like to use it for a media server I guess. Ideally less than $1500-2000?

Have you ever tried this and, if so, how do you do it AND does it make the game still look ok? I say this because I also have an anamorphic lens/scope setup and I just bought a new computer that is, relatively speaking, a mid range gaming setup. I'd like to get into some good racing games and would love to play it in scope without missing any necessary information.

Sorry, I'm not much of a gamer. I've heard that it's possible, but I don't know how to do it.
