View Full Version : Max. screen resolution help

07-12-2006, 09:29 AM
My video setup

ASUS Nvidia 7800GTX 256
Samsung 191T 19" LCD Max and native resolution of 1280X1024 16 or 32bit
- all latest drivers

In the setup mode, I am unable to select a screen resolution higher than 1024X 768

Yes I have edited the conf.ini file but when i load the game or setup it automatically resets back to 1024 or something lower.

Anyone with a similar setup and this kind of problem? This also applies to IL-2

with a few more details:

From the [window] portion of your conf.


and set...



If you're trying to run at a native LCD resolution, set ChangeScreenRes=0 as well. This will prevent the game from tying to switch to different resolutions to display the splash screens etc.

Well I've tried all combos but still no luck. I really have no clue what the deal is. 1280 never becomes an option. oh well...... thanks anyway.

Don't give up. Even though you change the resolution in your config file, the 1280 X 1024 resolution won't show up as an option in the video setup. It helps as well to right click on the config file, select properties and then tick the read only box.
