I bought a fancy new computer and when I try to force 1300x768 screen res in the conf file it keeps defaulting to 1024x768 in game. In the conf file it still shows 1300x768 however. Any ideas on how to remedy this? You'd think 1360x768 would be supported by now!

Anyways, it is a AMD dual-core 4600+ with a nvidia 7600 GT vid card if that helps, thanks!

open conf.ini in the main IL2 folder. Change the values of the entries highlighted to zero.

[window]
width=1808
height=1028
ColourBits=32
DepthBits=24
StencilBits=8
<span class="ev_code_RED">ChangeScreenRes=0</span>
FullScreen=1
DrawIfNotFocused=0
EnableResize=0
EnableClose=1
<span class="ev_code_RED">SaveAspect=0</span>
Use3Renders=0

This is a copy of my entry. Height and width will be at your values of course.

Just curious.... are you using a widescreen monitor? I have found that for me.. the best resolutions are on the same ratio as 800x600 ( 800/600=1.33), those are 1024x768, 1280x960 and 1600x1200 for my PC. The difference between each of those resolutions as far as frames go on one to the next is not too much of a hit... but it looks a lot better. With your rig try 1600x1200... compare the frames between that and 1280x960 or 1300x768.... I think you may be pleased.

I used to run at 1024x768... I bumped it up to 1280x960 and only lost a few frames... that was with my old XP3200.. now I have a FX53... it's an older 64 chip but better than what I had.. on a 6800GTOCd.. A squadmate uses 1600x1200... I did the math and saw the same ratio and said "Hmmmmmmm... " I tried setting my desktop to that res too but it was just too small... but I have my desktop at 1280x960 and the sim at 1600x1200... Try it. I dont think you will be disapointed.. and I think that unless you are using a widescreen monitor you will notice that things look a little more in proportion too.

The advantage of a more normal (1:1.33) aspect ratio is this... The FOV (field of view) setting is always tied to the horizontal width of the screen. Therefore with wide-screen aspects your vertical view angle will be truncated.

About higher resolutions. On my somewhat old-ish comp (P4-2.4GHz, 512 RAM, ATI 9800 pro w/ 256 RAM), I was most surprised to find virtually no performance hit when upping from 1024x768 to 1600x1200! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Yeah.. as long as you keep the ratio the same there wont bee too big a hit.. at least thats what I found.
