Fortnite rolled out a new update today, which introduced the Minigun, along with a host of other features and bug patches. However, a lot of users are reporting an issues with the screen size whilst playing Fortnite, with many claiming their screen is zoomed in too much.

Epic Games have recently acknowledged this is an issue, and are working on getting a fix for this as soon as possible. We’ve scouted through the communities posts on Reddit and have listed some tips that MAY work.

Note: This MAY or MAY not work. These are tips we’ve gathered on Reddit where players have stated it’s worked for them.

  1. Change your TV or monitor settings to wide-screen.
  2. On PS4, go to settings > sound and screen > display area settings. Shrink it to the maximum.
  3. If you have the option, turn off “overscan” on your TV.
  4. Go into the TV’s settings and mess around with the “picture mode” or similar. Changed it to “movie”, if that doesn’t work then try another mode.
  5. Change the aspect ratio of your TV.
  6. Go to your TV’s display settings, select aspect ratio and change it to Just Scan

Fortnite gets stuck on “press X to continue”. I press X and nothing happens. Been like this since last night. I tried a different controller no luck. I have the latest update and even tried deleting fortnite and reinstalling.

I do not know if this will help but, like with all new games that I get it asks me in the beginning of each game to set up the end of the arrows for the top and bottom, then side to side to make the game fit my TV. If you add this to the game it should fix our issue

Bear
Guest
Bear

Yes I looked all over in the game settings trying to find this and couldn’t.

ToastAndBud

Unfortunately none of these steps have worked for me personally. Maybe because of my old HDTV, nonetheless if you guys could fix this in game or have an option in game maybe just like the PS4 system does

Ben
Guest
Ben

I can’t get past the “press X to continue” when the game first starts. I tried reinstalling and it’s still the same
