Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Prototype only runs in low resolutions

The game will not run on resolutions higher than 1280*800, which quite pisses me off, because I didn't buy my 1680*1050 monitor for nothing. The option just doesn't appear in the game, and I have tried several fixes from gamecopyworld, I've tried editing the enginef.dll file, I tried running in windowed mode, nothing worked.
I would really like to be able to run this game at my native resolution.
This problem is frequent with graphics cards with <500MB VRAM.
I however, have 2GB of VRAM, so that shouldn't be the problem.

MSI k9a2 cf-f (mobo)
Powercolor HD4850 2GB (graphics)
AMD Phenom 9550 (CPU)

Thanks already,

PS: Don't mind the product, I just selected something, game wasn't in the list

Hmmm... I'm able to run Prototype at 1440*900, which is my monitor's native resolution. Are you saying that it won't LET you change the resolution or something? It should be under OPTIONS > VIDEO.

Question for you though, Did you BUY the game? Or just download it? If you bought the game and it's doing that, try reinstalling.

If you downloaded ( and by download I mean pirated, not Paid DDL ) then I guess just accept that you at least get to play the game without paying for it. Also, if this is the case, I'd have to recommend Razor1911's releases because they're superior to other cracking groups >_>
