Hello! When I installed the patch to my BF 1942 (deluxe) the load screen and setup windows are off center and stretched. Once I start the actual game the screen is fine, BUT when the startup video is playing, and I am browsing servers I cannot see the bottle quarter of the screen. As a result I cannot enable punkbuster (I assume it is on the bottle of the screen) and so I cant play a majority of the games! Anyone seen this or have a fix for me? Thanks =) Oh, the screens prior to playing are perfect before installing the patch...
hmmmmmmmmmm. ive never had a problem like that before. sorry cant help you :(
Here is Your fix, Go to your bf 1942 settings folder, then open the video.con folder, the last one. The key is most people dont tell u how to open it. Right click it, and hit open with, NOTEPAD. When u get it opened change the last setiing , the all refresh rate to 1. Or if its at 1 change it to 0. I hope it helps you.
You started well lunchbox232375, but you got lost on the way, just to clarify a few points. The line you need to either add or change is this, it should be "1"
The file it is in is "videodefault.con" in this folder " (or the appropriate installation directory)
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings
As lunchbox232375 says, open it with notepad or appropriate text editor, maybe make a backup first just in case.
Thanks so much!! Now I see the punkbuster option =)
