    Ok max I can see in game is 1380x760 or somthing.. anyone know how I could edit it to 1680x1050? It looks decent even @ 1380x760 but I think it could look even better!

    I know with some games you can change the res like in FEAR extraction point you can go into settings.cfg and change the screen hight elc.. I tried it on FEAR but it dident let me open the setting.cfg file... goess its just for extraction point.:toast:

    I think there is a line you can put in front of the target for the shortcut, but I have no idea what it is. Sorry :)

    Hm... I think it might be "-w 1600 -l 1024" without the quotes, but I'm not sure.

    ah I got it working.. but in umm 10 aspect ratio my monitor is advertised as a (whatever#)10 but its really a 9.. I guess the 9 aspect ratio does not support 1680x1050 but the 16?/10 does.. :p

    I had changed my settings in-game to windowed version and it wouldent load so I reinstalled.. than I still had the prob so I just used that link you gave me and it said I can type in -fullscreen to get it back to fullscreen :) was worried I was going to have to clear my registry to get it to work. anyways I noticed the font was smaller in 1680x1050 hopfully I get a better picture in game too... time to load up my saved game from b4 :).

    Thanks man
