Hi I need help because I tried to set my computer's resoulution to 1600x1200 on HL2 Fakefactory Cinematic mod and now my moniter freaks out with the refresh rate so all I get is a powermanagement screen but I can hear everything in the background. I need to know how to set my resoulution on the mod back down but I have tried setting it in properties but it still gives me the problem and I have reinstalled it but it keeps doing it is there anything to like set it to default or am I going to have to wait for another fakefactory mod?
Right click on the Fakefactory Mod, select 'Properties', click on 'Set launch options...', then type in the box '-dxlevel 90'. This will reset your setting to the default DirectX 9 settings. Afterwards remove the command line then restart the game, and the settings will be changeable again.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for responding I didn't think about that but I have a very low graphics card its a geforce 5500 fx card so I can only run dx8 without a crapload of lag but sadly I went ahead and reinstalled all of steam and HL2 and it worked again thanks though
The FX line of cards have trouble running DX 9 becuase they were progrogrammed badly. Even the FX 5900 Ultra dose a crap job of running DX 9. You will have to get a better video card for sure just stay out of the FX's and you should be okay.
If your card doesn't like DirectX 9, or 8, put the the command line parameter on '-dxlevel 70'. Let me know what this does.
It runs extremly smooth on dx8 but it is only when I go to dx9 I tried dx7 once when i was messing around and it ran about the same I usually get about 40 fps but if I mess around with dx9 and even set everything to min I get like 10 fps when I stare at blank space
Mnnnn, wierd. Well, at least it runs OK on DirectX 8.
