OK, My monitor can display 1600 x 1200 @ 85Hz all day long..

I setup Battlefield 1942 with the following....

renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1 in VideoDefault.con and game.setGameDisplayMode 1600 1200 32 85 in Video.con and VideoCustom.con in all profiles and they are marked as read only.

BF1942 looks like crap when I run i, it looks like 70Hz or even 60Hz. anyone know a fix to force it??

Hi Ziptar,

I assume that your are using windows XP with nvidia display card? There is a bug with windows XP that causes monitor refresh rate to default to 60Hz. You need either the Win XP refresh rate patch or I believe that the latest drivers also have the fix built in.

Try here:

http://www.voodoofiles.com/2633 for the patch

or alternatively:

http://www.nvidia.com for the latest detonater drivers.

Have fun

Thanks for the help, I guess I should have mentioned it up top. I am using an ATI All in Wonder 9700 Pro and the Catalyst 2.5 drivers.
