Hi agirlyman,

If you want to check the current game settings you can open a file called "" in one of the game dirs, preferably with wordpad.

It will have lines like this:

game.setGameDisplayMode 800 600 32 60 game.setDetailTexture 5 game.setShadows 1 game.setEnvironmentMapping 1 game.setGraphicsQuality 3 game.setLightmaps 1 game.setRenderWhenSpawnMenu 1 game.setMenuViewdistance 100 game.setEffectsQuality 3 game.setPerformance 0

With the top line being the current display mode. You can change it there to better suit you, however it sounds like a refresh rate thing to me rather than a resolution thing. In the display mode I have resolution 800X600 as above, color depth 32 as above but can be 16 but no lower, and the refresh rate 60 Hrtz, yes, I too have an old monitor. If you do have an old monitor this should be set to 60.

Good luck.
