Everytime I start up the game, it shuts down right away, however if I plau back in my old CRT 17" monitor it works fine, any ideas?

oh, it could be a refresh rate issue aswell, if ur drivers/software are forcing a high refreshrate

you would think if you had the $$ for a Dell 30" you could figure it out...

oh and ive czeched to see the highest res u can run at


if u dont want stuff tobe cropped, then u can use 2133/4 x1600
u will probably need to make a custom res for that, and set the panel to fixed aspect ratio, or whatever so it doesnt stretch to fit it.

well that dell is on the way, we tested it on our Apple 30" display, the settings are roughly the same, would this cause the same thing for Ghost Recon and Lock-On?

I'm running a 26" ilo LCD HDTC/monitor and have basically no issues. Sometimes I notice a slight discontinuity in the refresh - especially in the Online 4 map in the mountains; though I suspect this is due more to my cr@p card (Nvidia 5500 - soon to be relegated to secondary status) than the monitor.

I have run it on my dell 37 inch monitor ok http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

monguse gave me some settings for running it in widescreen but cant find them or have used them, have you got the refresh rate set to the games? u could also ask in the forum on the Dell site, there is one for monitors http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
