I hoping somebody will help me out here. I'm running a GF6800GT with 66.81 drivers (have also tried others) and there is no option to set my resloution to 1280*960 (in glide or DX), which was the previous max when I had FB. I know it can be forced in the .ini file but that gave black bars at the top and bottom of the screen and removed some data from the speed bar which I had to do a reinstall to get back!

Any suggestions/ideas?

(I recently tried BF:V and found it also wouldn't give me an option for resolutions over 1024 when I'm sure it should).

A thread explaining a solution to the above (http://www.raf662.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=42;t=000699)

Drivers are likely not the problem, but fiddling with them will certainly keep you busy for awhile. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Are you running a TFT?

Most TFT's will not take the 1280x960, because the pixel sizes are different ratios to 1025x768 and 1280x1024 and the 1280x1024 is often the native resolution.
