Hello friends,

I'm having the issue the title describes. I can't set 1920x1080 in Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider, for example, while i do can in Far Cry 3, The Witcher 2, Starcraft 2, etc.

I have a 720p/1080i HDTV and games looks a lot better on 1080i and i wish to use that resolution on all games.

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950.

Screen: Samsung 32' LCD HDTV.

I hope you can help me.

Maybe because your TV is 1080i, and the games want a 1080p display.

Yes? Is that possible? Only because of the refresh rate?

And why Tomb Raider allows me in windowed mode but no at fullscreen?

Why some games allow me and other don't?

In Crysis 3, If i force the resolution through the settings file it goes 1920x1080, but the in-game settings wouldn't allow me to go further 1280x720.

Any other idea?

Well, when i switched from 1280x720 to 1920x1080 in Witcher 2 i can assure you i see a HUGE difference.

So, would you tell me what is 1080i?

Here's the issue, PC's have ALWAYS used Progressive scan; they've never bothered much with interlaced video. What I'm betting is that a large subset of games simply don't have support for 1080i, or any other interlaced resolution.

You might be able to get around this by making sure your GPU is set to TV mode. You also might be able to force the resolution via a quick launch option.

Thanks for the response.

I've set the GPU in HDTV mode, 1080i precisely, via CCC. But it makes no difference at all. Some games just refuse to recognize the resolution, while other does even when desktop resolution is set in 720p. That's why i'm sure i can run every game in 1920x1080 and that the resolution is real, i see the difference clearly.

What do you mean with "force the resolution via a quick launch option"?

don't forget, back in the day, interlaced monitors were commonplace.
