Screen resolution


Recommended Posts

Hi :)


I have a small problem :


My screen is 16:9 and my game is always launching in 4:3. Then I go in Options, Silent, Resolution, 1600x1200.


But I would like the game to launch in this resolution by default. Is it possible ? I do not know anything about config, so if someone can help me to create my cfg it would be helpful !

Create new textfile and type this in it:


seta r_mode -1
seta r_customheight "X"
seta r_customwidth "X"


add your screen resolution there instead of X, for example:


seta r_customheight "1200"
seta r_customwidth "1600"


Choose save as and name it autoexec.cfg -> save it in your ET/etmain folder and you should be good to go!

If the cfg doesn't load automatically as it should, open console and type /exec autoexec and then /vid_restart


You can also add other settings there if you wish to do so. It's a pretty big task to do a cfg from scratch, especially if you have no experience of making one. If you want a cfg, I suggest you download someone else's cfg and edit it to your needs. You can also check this for more information

Ok, the cfg did load, but I think you set the resolution wrong somehow, look what resolution you have on your desktop and set it to the config, save and try again. Make sure you don't mix width and height in the config, otherwise it will crash.
