Alright, this weekend I'm at my Dad's house and I have to use one of his old monitors. This monitor just happens to take it anal and can't change resolutions. Is there a way I can set the game to windowed without going in-game?

Thanks for the help.

bf1942 will not run in a window, only fullscreen. However there is a way to manually set the resolution of the game.

Go to: \EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Custom

Find the file Video.con and open it up in either wordpad or notepad. Next change the following line to your prefered resolution.

game.setGameDisplayMode 1280 1024 32 75

This is the resolution I use, the format of it is like this: 1280 1024 = resolution 32 = bit depth (can be 16 or 32) 75 = is refreshrate

You can change these to any of the resolution your monitor is capable of displaying. Just have a look at the location you change the res for you desktop for a few valid examples, since you can simply put random values here :D 1143x986 or anything else weird shouldn't work. When your done, make this file readonly (located at it's properties as a checkbox) just to make sure bf42 isn't going to screw around with it :D
