LG 32" LCD TV as monitor - Issues involving Metro 2033!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So here's the skinny, I use a LCD TV (32") as my monitor, and it works a charm, at 1600x1200 resolution, it is fine for me to play games with, but recently (in the THQ sale) I bought Metro 2033 for £3.74! (Effin bargain!) and It wont run, due to it being an 'invalid' format in fullscreen (In the past that meant it's the wrong resolution for the screen) I can't force Steam to launch it windowed, and I can't set the resolution to 1600 x 1200 outside of the game (although I tried editing the .cfg file, it stays at 1680 x 1050).


Please help, as I really want to play this game!

What I've done:
I've edited the .cfg
I've set the launc paramaters to windowed (did nothing so I removed the parameters)
I deleted content.upk0 file (It was a supposed issue)

I just want to play it is all.
Thanks in advance for any help given!

Try and set the aspect ratio to 4:3 and the res to 1600x1200 in cfg.

Have you tried setting your resolution in windows to something smaller?
