      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Need help, screen size changing

6 posts in this topic

I am completely at a loss here. Last night whenever I started up Tales of Graces f the screen size shrank so that it no longer filled up my TV. Rayman Origins still works just fine, however whenever I tested the Metal Gear Solid HD collection it did the same thing.

I checked the Display Settings and I have 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p all enabled. I have no idea where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This problem just started last night. I haven't changed any settings on my PS3 since the last time I played it.

Edit: Also, the home screen is the right size. Whenever I start the game is when it shrinks.

I know for MLB the Show I had to go into the game settings and stretch the picture vertically and horizontally with the sliders because there is 1 inch black bars around the screen otherwise.

See if your games have a similar option, likely under video settings.

Unfortunately I already checked, and Tales of Graces f doesn't have that option. At least, I couldn't find the option if it does exist. :(

I've tried to look up the problem but I keep coming up empty. Maybe I'm using the wrong search terms, but I seem to be the only person who has this specific problem. In the threads I read the problem was solved by enabling all the resolutions in the Display Settings or hard resetting the PS3, but neither of those helped at all.

I honestly don't know what could have happened between Monday (the last time I played Tales of Graces f without the screen problem) and last night. I didn't even touch the PS3 between those two days. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this, because it sucks having to play on a smaller screen.

Maybe give it a try set to 720p? Uncheck 1080p/i and see if that makes a difference. That's the only thing I can think of that might help, but I don't see why it would make a difference. Also check the aspect ratio of your tv, see if it is on just scan or 16:9 and switch it to the one it's not on and see if that makes a difference.

What is your native resolution? 720p or 1080p? Keep only one number checked, the native resolution and see if that helps. Some PS3 games default to 480p (in the past) when people had 1080i CRT TVs.
