Just to help you out - What is your monitors native resolution? What ever it is, you'll probably want to check this out:
Setting A Custom Resolution
Since the lack of a range of resolutions is one of the most common complaints about BF2142, I'll spell out the solution again here. It involves using the +szx and +szy command line options (covered in the Advanced Tweaking section). For example to set a resolution of 1280x1024, go to your BF2142 launch icon, right-click on it and select Properties. Then in the Target box put a single blank space after the last character and insert +szx 1280 +szy 1024, substituting any other number for the 1280 width and 1024 height respectively to suit your needs. The end result should look something like this:
Now each time you launch the game it will run in the custom resolution specified, however note firstly that you must make sure your monitor can support this resolution, and secondly the Display Mode setting under the in-game Video Settings will not show the correct new resolution, not that this is a problem. Unlike Battlefield 2, editing the Video.con file does not work in properly setting a custom resolution, so this is the recommended method for doing so.
Yeah, it was really stupid of them not to include that resolution. Especially when they have like 6 variations of 1280xXXX. They also need to fix the 60% map load / hang bug, which at the moment, they won't even admit exists. It can be fixed by renaming a file (a protected system file), but it's still stupid of them not to acknowledge and and provide a fix for it in their FAQ.
Alright so what i'm understanding so far is that I can create a custom resolution in BF2? My monitors native res is 1680x1050 and I have it set now in BF2 video options to 1280x960. It does look good but if this will make it look better than i'm all for it. Is there any other tweeks that I can do to make it look even that much better. I've set all nvidia control panel setting to max quality too.
Having the '+widescreen 1' in there did seem to make a difference in relation to the aspect ratio. looks more proper now than it did without it..
I changed it to +szx 1680 +szy 1050 but didnt mess with the fullscreen changing it to widescreen... do you think this will make a difference? After I changed to the new resolutions it looked just as sharp but I notice a bit of some jagged edges like AA is off or something. I'll try putting in the widescreen...
So I simply just delete fullscreen and replace with widescreeN?
