    yeah, it's set properly =[

    i made a picture to demonstrate what my problem is

    (i added the lines in paint, just imagine that they're black)

    P.S

    mine is the wii edition, i just got a random screenshot to explain my point,

    the bars that are appearing are black, i just used grey to illustrate my point better

    the bars always appear during the game.

    You got a PAL Wii? Cause if you do, and have a decent tv use 60hz.
    If you have combonet cabels (bought seperatly) you should use 480p.

    I use 480p, and there is not borders on Resident Evil, and ive just tested on 60hz aswell - no borders. I dunno if this could solve your problem tho, but its a try worth.

    I have the official rgb cable and when I set the wii to pal 576i(50hz) I get a green line across the bottom of the screen but when I set it to 60hz it disappears. Anyone else getting this?

    I don't know the technical reasoning for it, but I heard it had something to do with a lot of widescreen TVs being made differently and that most are made a little off of 16:9. Some widescreen compatible games don't account for that so you get black bars if you have a TV that is wider than what is actually displayed. I'm not sure if anyone can understand me. [​IMG]

    when i set my wii from 50hz to 60hz everything is all blurry looking and i think the bars may have gotten slightly bigger, or it may just be me... =/

    Don't worry about it. The action from being swarmed every now and then will keep you focused on the shooting. [​IMG]

    Come to think of it I actually had these black lines but I paid no attention to it. The game's too good! If they were red or blue or something insane then I would have cared/noticed.

    PAL Wii (and game) running at 480p, 60Hz on a widesreen NTSC only tele.
