seems that bf1942 isnt compatible with lcd monitors. especially i mean the ingame fonts. if u have anti-aliasing and anisotropic etc ON the fonts look just ugly. turn it off and they look fine. heard its a problem of lcd monitors and the ingame font. its the first game though, that make problems with my lcd. every other game runs and looks fine. :uhm:

They aren't exactly crystal clear on standard monitors when using AA. Add in the fact that the vast majority of LCD monitors are already fuzzy and you probably won't be able to read anything.

Well there is another thing with LCD monitors that may help. LCD monitors are designed in such a way that they have an optimum resolution. Usually in the case of a 17" LCD their optimum resolution is 1024X768. Anything other than that, and even just plain windows, will not look very sharp, and text will be very problematical.

The reason for this is the way the pixels are set up on the LCD monitor. All LCD monitors have an exact number of pixels across and down (in the case of 17" monitors it's often 1024X768), if you run the monitor at anything more or less the display has to try and map the image using the existing pixels, which results in a screwed up display. Try running the game in the LCD's optimum resolution mode (may slow your game down though if you don't have a chunky enough vid card.)

I suspect it's to do with the 4/3 aspect ration that the games uses in full screen. All the supported resolution have that aspect ration, but 1280/1024 has a different aspect ratio of 5/4 and this may be the problem, if you played in this aspect ration your in game graphics would all be squishied. Not 100% sure of that but it's the only thing I can see that could cause it.

Hi Reacore,

It's not available in my dropdown list either, even though higher resolutions are available such as 1600/1200. I worked out the aspect ratio of the supported resolutions and they are all the same 4/3, no resolution that doesn't have a 4/3 aspect ratio is available. Maybe they will remedy this in a patch but it may be a limiting factor of the 3D engine they are using. Suggest you contact DICE (EA may be able to help but they are really only the distributors.)
