If you don't have an anamorphic lens, doing the Zoom Method with lens memory is the best way to retain the full original resolution of the image. You don't need the OPPO's 21:9 modes for that.
I think you may still be able to benefit from having disc menus shrunk to the 2.35:1 ratio when zooming, or is there no setting to accommodate?

This is the thread I should have posted in first.

Anyway long story short.

OPPO FW 60A killed WCG for the off2020 mode. It added a green line if you had the OPPO connected to a 1080p projector.
It did add Dolby Vision.

I was having success with the older BenQ W6000. A while back, I upgraded to a JVC X3 1080p DiLA projector.

I'm now using HDR to SDR conversion with the Dolby Vision mode. The projector has inverse telecine which smooths out the judder caused by 60Hz and maps out most of P3 colour.

I can't remember the last BD I bought. Everything is UHD and the DV mode has elevated SDR BD playback.

I'll probably keep using mine solely for the v-stretch and since I have it off-network I am not worried about firmware updates for now.

I am unsure if i get this right. I dont have any lens in front of My projector, it just have the option of 16:9 or 2:35:1 and I use 2:35:1 since i have a 2:35:1 screen to project on.
My oppo 203 have these aspect ratio options, and I normally use 16:9 wide auto if i watch a movie fits for My screen.
So My question for you is that when i watch a 16:9 movie i use the option in oppo 21:9 cropped and then it fits just as I should with bars on each side, the real question is could or should i just stay on 21 9 cropped and the press the zoom bottom on oppo if i watch a 21 9 movie and then just press it again if a 16 9 movie. My concern with it is AM I better of with 16 9 wide auto option if i am watching a 21.9 movie instead of zoom on oppo in this case. I Hope you know what i mean.
And the reason i ask is, do I get the better resolution or anything Else like that with One of these two options. Thanks

Do you use your projector's optical zoom to change between 16:9 and 2.35:1, or do you leave it zoomed out to fill the screen width at all times?

When watching a 2.35:1 movie, there should not be any quality difference between using the "16:9 Wide/Auto" setting and the "21:9 Cropped" setting (after you hit the OPPO player's Zoom button). The 21:9 Cropped setting has the benefit of masking off the top and bottom of the frame for movies with variable aspect ratio like The Dark Knight or M:I Fallout. If you watch those using 16:9 Wide/Auto, some movie image will be projected onto your wall during the IMAX scenes.
