    Hmm interesting. Can you adjust screen properties in games/driver to account for the curve?

    I don't think so, never seen such an option. The curve is trying to account for traditional flatness, anyway.

    Trouble is usually the scene is already projected onto a flat plane, so accounts for the greater distance between the eye and edges of the screen for example - showing the same image on a curved screen will make the edges appear slightly stretched compared to the middle. I suppose increasing FOV may help a little.
