Does anyone know how I can get IL2 1946, v408m
to run in 16:10 ratio, 1440x900 resolution.
I may be being a bit dense here but trying to achieve this is driving me nuts!
Please oh please, can someone put me out of my misery?

Luv MERLINXXX

Go into your conf.ini file inside your IL2:46 folder and make sure the lines under the [window] portion look like this:


[window]
width=1440
height=900
ColourBits=32
DepthBits=24
StencilBits=8
ChangeScreenRes=1
FullScreen=1
DrawIfNotFocused=0
EnableResize=0
EnableClose=1
SaveAspect=0
Use3Renders=0



Keep in mind tho, every time you save some configuration using IL2Setup, it will overwrite [window] section... so you need to redo the changes for widescreen every time.

Also, when you start the game, you will still have the black bands on the sides in the splash screen but when you get into the game (in the cockpit) you should be in true widescreen view.

It's important to set SaveAspect to 0 as above (I think it is 1 by default), or you will get black bars on the sides of the screen.
