i need help with resolution


Recommended Posts

A lot of people I play Enemy Territory with have been contemplating switching to a version of the program called ET Legacy, and their reasoning is generally related to screen resolutions.

Wolfenstein Enemy Territory is a very old game, and the designers never conceived that it would ever be played on a 1920×1080 screen resolution, so it was never coded to have that option in the Video Settings.

That being said, you can make a few modifications to your launcher shortcut, and run Enemy Territory at true native 1920×1080 resolution.


Note: The only glitch I’ve encountered with this so far, is that when you’re changing video settings in the game, the game will not revert back to 1920×1080 without a game restart after a settings change (such as texture quality, dynamic lighting, etc changes).  So, go set your quality levels for textures and everything prior to modifying your shortcut, then you should avoid encountering any of those issues.

Linux\Mac: You can use similar command switches on Linux or Mac to achieve this goal, but the process of editing the shortcut\launcher may vary.


I run my game at 1600x900 and its basically the same as 1080p. 


+r_mode "-1" +r_customwidth "1920" +r_customheight "1080"




+r_mode "-1" +r_customwidth "1600" +r_customheight "900"


Right click your ET shortcut





You can type in/copy and paste the provided resolution above into there. I found that 1600x900 was best for me and pc. 


Another note: you will need "r_mode -1" to run a custom resolution.

Perhaps when u installed new drivers for card it reset windows scaling 

A friend had this same issue and he had scaling set to 150% in win 10 it may even be the default setting here is how to change it try this



Open the control panel (Start menu, search for 'Control panel')

Select 'Appearance and Personalization'

Select 'Display'

Check 'Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays'

Check 100% scaling, apply and follow the instructions

Open the option center of your graphic card. there you can change if you use full screen (it will zoom to full then) or if you just play with this resolution and having black renderings. Can't find this post so fast will post the link later maybe 😕 i am at work
