Native resolution for this monitor is 1680x1050 @60Hz for best pictures, if your needs to run at higher resolution then it will not work, you will get format not supported message on the screen.

Graphics engine error


Hi,

I don't know if you were receiving this error for the same reason I was. I had just purchased a new LCD Flat Panel display and the game absolutely hated the monitor. The resolution I had set for the previous monitor was apparently causing the error that prompted the "/safe" parameter message. Since support dragged their butts in offering a solution, I ended up seeking out help elsewhere online and found this website: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

They deal in solutions for playing a wide variety of games that may not have any support for widescreen.

They offered a most simple solution. The safe meesage appears to come up because the game does not like starting in the resolution you have the game set at.

Their fix is simple. Scrap the "/safe" command that the game is asking you to use.

Go into the game data folder and find the file DATA/ufo-et.ini and then edit the height and width parameters to a lower resolution OR if you are in fact using a widescreen monitor edit the resolution to the default resolution the screen runs best at and then resave the file. Restart the game and the "/safe" message should go away. Worked like a charm for me.

Let me know if this helps


Cheers,


Robin

Presently I used window7 with ati radio HD 4350.How can I make my game crossfire in full screen?


I have looked through some game forums to try to answer this one, and this is pretty much the best answer I could find:

"- switch the desktop resolution to the resolution you play the game in
- start the game: it works.
- quit the game
- change the desktop resolution back to the native resolution of the display
- start the game: IT WORKS!!!

I do not know how and why, but this helped me."

I don't know if this will help you, but it seems to work for others.

Cant Get Game Resolution To Work With Hdmi


Dont use 1920x1080. Its probably being very heavy for your graphics card. You havent specified what graphics capacities your PC has so I cannot tell for sure. But I play COD MW using HDMI cable on a 1080p TV too and what has worked for me is,

Set the TV resolution to 1280x800 and the same for COD MW. This is the best and safest widecreen option. You can give 1400x900 a try but I am pretty sure 1280x800 will work fine.

When I start my game, monitor goes black and out of range appears


I suspect the game is trying to run in a resolution that is either not supported by the monitor or your video card. If there is a setup/configuration for the game please run it to choose a different resolution.

You can tell the resolution your are currently running by looking in control panel, display, settings.

Your monitor supports a max resolution of 1280x1024, so if the minimum requirements of the game are higher then the monitor simply will not work with the game. If the monitor meets the requirements then lets look at the max resolution of the video card you are using.

Please let us know if this has solved your problem or if you would like further assistance.

An error message of "for the best resolution change your settings to 1440 x 900. However these are my setting and the error populates appx every 5 minutes in the middle of the screen and does not go...


Usually this pertains to the maxium resolution of your monitor-make sure the resolution on your graphic card is set to the same 1440 x 900, or else the monitor will ask you to change it to back to the 1440 x 900.This also includes games, make sure you set your game resolution in 1440 x 900, if its not possible then check the manual of your monitor and then see if there is a auto resolution option.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
