Ive got a 19" widescreen monitor and need help with setting up the config to let it run. Ive browsed over a German thread but didnt fully understand it.

Cheers!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Il-2 does not support widescreen. I mean, you can make the image to fit the screen (editing the image size commands in the conf.ini file), but it will crop big portions of it in the upper and lower side, and speed bar and other messages will appear in a uncomfortable not-extreme position.

Sorry.

Tray this:
[window]
width=1920
height=1200
ColourBits=32
DepthBits=24
StencilBits=8
ChangeScreenRes=0
FullScreen=1
DrawIfNotFocused=0
EnableResize=1
EnableClose=1
SaveAspect=0
Use3Renders=0
Change the values of your res in PF conf.ini
It works for me.

Be aware setting it to wide screen means you actually loose from teh sides as well as the top, both screen shots are of the default view of the game:
1920x1200/widescreen

1600x1200
http://gallery.superbdevelopment.net/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=352&g2_serialNumber=2

IMHO your best bet is to keep the ratio as 1 but the res to 1920x1200. You get as much as you can that way.

*edit*

Save the aspect ratio as 1 that is.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Turn it on its side and put the resoloution value as 900x1440 instead of 1440x900, you will gain a but load of vertical vision. Yes its a glitch, but who cares http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

It wont crop either<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
