HELP! Very Frustrated!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok, because I got my new 6800GS, I tried to bump up the in-game resolution in DOD:S to 1280/960 (which my 9600xt lagged like crazy with) so I could get a more crisp image. But, DOD:S stopped responding, and when I tried to open it again I got an error that says (in a big black screen)

Out of Range
74.5k 74Hz


Now I have tried everything to get it working again, but nothing seems to work. The max resolution on my monitor is 1280/1024, but in DOD:S it says LCD.

How do I get it back to my 1024/768???

do you have an lcd? cause most lcds wounlt except XXXX/960 unless its a wide screen or possibly CRT (extended Japanese 4:3 Aspect ratio) which is more like 5:3. any who - you have to change settings in the game - if its not 1280/768 it should be on 1280/1024 or you'll hit problems.
thats just my 2 cents though.

I have a Star Logic CRT, w/max resolution of 1280/1024... (think its 4:3 ratio)


I'm just pissed off because when ever I turn on DOD:S, I don't get an image and I just hear the menu sounds.

isnt there a option for safe mode on the game (kinda like C.O.D2?) or a sepperate app for setting up the settings like Farcry - but i guess you should probly clock down a bit on the vid card - change the settings back - then bump (or better - burn in the card first) then OC back up.

I don't think any games using the source engine have an option to run in safe mode. And I oc'd my card safley.....I tinkered w/it for about a week. Idle 37C, load 50C. Is there anyway that I can change the resolution in the actual steamaps file?

EDIT: I wonder why you are the only one helping me....I thought this would be the best place to ask for help.

Go to the launch options for Day of Defeat: Source. This quote explains more about setting your own custom resolution:

Quote:
-width [pixels] -height [pixels]: Using these two commands you can set a custom resolution in Pixel Width x Pixel Height (e.g. -width 640 –height 480 starts HL2 with 640x480 resolution). Make sure you choose a resolution supported by your monitor and with the correct ratio of width to height (usually 4:3).
