It puts it in the centre of the screen but honestly it makes very little difference, you don't really notice it after a minute. It's obvious why, as it would give an unfair advantage to those with ultrawide screens.

My monitor and TV each do 3840X2160, it works at that resolution fine.

With super wide it has the problem of either cutting the top/bottom off to give you full width or reducing to the center of the screen.


The fix more often than not is to see if it has a windowed full mode. This often basically goes full screen with no borders but fills the entire screen I find.

It's not a glitch or anything though, it's intentional. Apparently there was a bug where you could move units outside the viewable area, not sure if that's been fixed or not, I never noticed it though.

Nothing else seems to have been fixed, the ore miners still try to get to refineries that they cannot go to and don't check if another is available. On the last map fighting as Nod this can shut down your production. Would have been nice if they had bugfixed better.

Great video here that explains the complexity of pathfinding amongst other things, the team are Westwood were a bloody talented bunch!


The problem with that is it requires changing the AI and that could negatively affect the campaign. Improving the audio visual and adding some usability tweaks is one thing but adjusting pathfinding, etc is very complex and could fundamentally change too much.

Of course, now the source code is out I expect a ton of mods to do exactly that!

Yes, but this only affects the ore miners in specific situations. Make it that they cannot see refineries that are on other sides of unassailable water. I cannot get there, wait 1 minute try again.

They could have cured it, but the number of official maps it affects is small.
