1. I have just installed the game but it will not launch, because an error message appears "CD/DVD emulation program is detected. Close down any of these programs and continue". I use Alcohol 120% but i see no readon why the game won't play while the disk is in...

2. Is the max resolution 1024x980? I have a ViewSonic VX724 where the best resolution for all applications is 1280x1024. I have downloaded the patches for the game but i haven't installed them yet, so, this one might be corrected in a patch.

Any help is welcome

Regards
Athanasios

2. For "non-standard" resolutions (ie: not 4:3 aspect ratio) you'll need to edit the conf.ini, the game doesn't officially support resulutions that aren't 4:3 aspect ratio.

Only 1280*960 will respect the 4/3 aspect ratio (1280/960=1,33), 1280*1024 will give you oval circles (meters in the cockpit) and slightly flatened planes (1280/1024=1,25)

You're right of course Tully, but before posting i checked, and it appears that the Viewsonic VX 724 is a 4/3 screen.
