World map zoomed in too much.

I have an odd problem.. the world view during the game selection screens is zoomed in too much. I've attached pictures to show what I mean. The large world size is a mega-closeup, with the earth only being viewable as a planet in the duel size. Everything in-game is normal, so it's just a minor annoyance.

I'm not running any mods, nor did I change anything in the regular files since the problem cropped up (I don't think). Any solution?

1280*800 is such a strange aspect ratio.
Most players play with ratios like 4:3 (800x600), 16:9 or 1280x1024 and games are tested in those aspect ratios.

If you run in a more standard resolution it will be fine. 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024,1600x1200 are typically the standard resolutions people use, although if 1280x800 is the native resolution of your lcd it would be best to stick with that.

1280*800 is not strange, as I have a widescreen which Civ IV supports. The resolution is irrelevant, and even with downgrading the resolution to 1024*768 the problem persists. To reinforce my point, this DOES NOT happen in-game, just during the map type selection screen. I was just used to seeing the planets with a not-so-zoomed-in view and it looked much better before. Why it changed, or how to change it back I don't know.. that's why I'm asking. :)
