My 17" monitor supports a max resolution of 1280X1024. But for some reason which I don;t understand Il2 '46 will only allow me to select a resolution of 1280X960.

Now I have configured my config ini to force the game to play at 12080X1024, but why doesn't the game support that resolution right off the bat since my monitor does support it?

IL2 is native 4:3 ratio.

1280 x 1024 is 5:4.

Due to the enormous number of monitor and vid card combinations and the fact the basic game engine is 7 years old, supporting a monitor and resolution that may have not existed when the game was designed seems forgivable to me.
