Medal of Honor: Allied Assault issue?! Help please

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have MOHAA and both expansions with patches. Everything installs fine and the game (plus expansions) run fine on max detail but only at lower resolutions. When I try to put the resolution above 1024x768 in any of the 3 they all crash with the:
"glw_startopengl() - could not load opengl subsystem" error.

I tried www.widescreengamingforum.com guide to tweaking MOHAA but it seems when I run MOHAA, Spearhead, and Breakthrough neither of them save a .CFG file to edit. I've ran all 3 and searched every directory in the MOHAA install folder but the only .cfg files there are for setting up game servers.

For a little extra info I have a laptop with an i3 and a ATI 5650 1GB. It's detected by MOHAA as:

I'm at a loss on how to play the game with a decent high resolution. :-(

Have you tried adding flags to the shorcut to set the resolution? (If it supposrts it, I'm not sure, and I dont know what the flags would be; sorry).

good idea but i'm not running it through steam. It might work but I'd have to set flags for almost every graphic option as I said, it's doesn't save a .cfg file so I'd have to set a flag for textures and audio and everything.

thanks for the help though.

Are you sure you'd have to set flags for ALL the graphics options? I'm pretty sure most programs alow flags on their desktop shortcuts for just certain option (like resolutions).

Either way, good luck.

ATi's drivers are screwed up when it comes to OpenGL games. So the only thing you can do is just keep it at low res and play it like that. I used to have a HD3850 and i couldnt even run OpenGL games like MOH, RTCW. It would just have an error at the console because the drivers wont support it.

thanks folks but i found a solution. the game is old so it allowed me to edit some configuration files. i was able to set a resolution not available in the in game resolution selection. finally looks good and is running full resolution on my laptop. the sad thing is though the config file doesnt work on the mohaa expansion packs so mohaa is fine but spearhead and breakthrough are at the crappy low resolutions.

thanks for lookin folks

seta r_customwidth "1920" Adjust to your custom width.
seta r_customheight "1280" Adjust to your custom height
seta r_mode "-1" //This locks the custom resolution in the game.


Start up mohaa and let it run and after you shut it down replace mine "unnamedsoldier.cfg" with yours.

Location of the file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\MOHAA\main\configs

When you restart you will see fps is now on and max fps has been set to 999. And all the game settings has been maxed out.

If for some reason it doesn't work for you. Open the console and type in each line and it will then set that way also. If you need me to make one for you i can. Let me know.

hey killer k. thats what i've done.

i installed all 3 at once and when i ran AA it didnt create an unnamedsoldier.cfg.

i uninstalled everything and ONLY installed AA and when i ran it, it did create an unnamedsoldier.cfg... so i edited it.

however i installed SH and BT but neither created .cfg files and neither read the unnamedsoldier.cfg that was created in AA
