HOW CAN I MANUALLY EDIT THE CONFIG FILE OF THE GAMES.
well if you can find it (try the install folder), just open it in notepad. It usually is a plain txt file with lots of stuff in it, find the lines that have the resolution and refresh rate and set as 1280 x 1024 and 60Hz, save and exit. Mind the actuall format of the lines though, just change the numbers and leave the rest alone. And take a back up copy of the file before you edit it, just in case.
