I've recently purchased a new computer, along with it came a 1680x1050 Wide-screen monitor. Now when I run Bridge Commander in Full Screen at it's maximum resolution, everything looks slightly squashed.

If I run in windowed mode the game latches itself to the upper left corner of the screen rather than the center, which is fairly distracting. On top of that the maximum it will run in Windowed mode is 1024x768.

What I'd like to know is; Is it possible to add larger screen resolutions or enable the larger resolution for windowed mode. At the very least I'd like to have the thing centered on screen rather than up in the corner - with most games you can drag it around the screen, but Bridge Commander doesn't have anything to drag it with.

Karma for he who can provide a solution.

well i believe i read somewhere that some people where able to get those resolutions...and others didn't ....

but they tried it by editing the options.cfg file...there you can edit the options manually instead of ingame :P...

remember to set the highest number from the resolution on the place where the highest is..and the lowest of the two on the place where the lowest one is ..this way you won't get any trouble.start with the lowest resolution that starts with widescreen ;)

Sadly, that doesn't work.

Manual editing of the resolution resulted in D3D errors. - On all resolutions, including BC defaults.
