The higher resolution value must be there. You need to actually scroll down the list of resolutions from the Game's Menu. Just try to scroll down the list to get your desired Screen Resolution i.e. 1600 x 900.

If the above does not work, then try to manually edit the game's config file, which is ConvictionUserPC.ini. Open this config file i.e. 'ConvictionUserPC.ini' with notepad, and search for the following heading/lines e.g.:

[UserVideoOptions.Your_USER.ACCOUNT_Name]
VisualQuality=2
StartupFullscreen=True
FullscreenViewportX=
FullscreenViewportY=
MaxRefreshRate=60
WindowedViewportX=
WindowedViewportY=
UseVSync=False
UseHDR=True
MonitorAspect=-1.000000......

Now enter the desired value of the Screen Resolution Mode inside the 'FullscreenViewportX/Y=' lines as seen above, and save the file. The above config file can be found here: C:\ProgramData\Ubisoft\Conviction\ConvictionUserPC .ini.

These Folders may be 'Hidden' under Windows, so make a note of this. For Windows XP, try looking for the above file i.e. 'ConvictionUserPC.ini' under the following path, i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users or Owner\Application Data\Ubisoft\Conviction.

You can also enter the desired Screen Resolution values inside the config file, as explained above.

Cheers.
