BF2142 won't run on our 1080p flatscreen - Page 3

post #21 of 31
If you can't change it there, download Powerstrip or that other program (got-a funny name) and change it there. But, if you want your parents not to spank your eyeballs outt'a your skull, you shouldn't attempt to force the television to play at that res any longer.

You've been warned, like fifty times.

And try it at 60hz instead of 75hz.

Unfortunately, it doesn't support wide screen either, but on my pc it is at 1280 by 960 I believe, so that's what it should be trying to run at now.

The BF2/2142 engine does not officially support widescreen resolutions, but by editing the CON files with Notepad or using the shortcut fix, you can force whatever resolution you want. (Things might be a little stretched, though.)

Seems like a game issue then, maybe with widescreen resolutions. Trying setting it to a 4:3 aspect, like 1280x1024.

However, I would still only run 1920x1080 from now on. I'd hate to see your ruin that nice TV.

The reason I don't use my 1080p TV to game is because when a game doesn't support widescreen, i'm forced to run at 1280x1024..

Make sure your desktop is set to 1920x1080 @ 60hz also

OMG, Thanks, I should have thought of that, because I had to do this for my 1680 by 1050 monitor. Thanks again

True, but punkbuster will kick/ban you once you load the server.
