800x600

Question

:hmm

Hello I have a problem company

Every time I start the game over xfirea ET is ordered in 800x600 resolution. After setting my monitor supports 1280x1024 you, so I need to swap each time the settings to the desired dimension. Who knows why and how to edit

thanks

Post your config using code BBCode.

XFire probably launches the game with the settings in your etmain/profiles/name/etconfig.cfg

 

Try making sure everything is set correctly in there as well (or xfire allows you to add command line properties {e.g. a "+exec myconfig.cfg"} when you launch games).

Another way to fix this would be to add a file to your etmain directory called "autoexec.cfg". This file will always be ran when ET starts. To have it fix your resolution, put these lines in the .cfg:

seta r_mode -1
seta r_customwidth 1280
seta r_customheight 1040

r_mode -1 is custom resolution settings, and r_customwidth/height provide the custom parameters.

 

Hope this helps.

Do you use autoexec.cfg? or default config game?

if it's not then go to your etmain folder and check if there a file named autoexec.cfg and if you find it... then just copy past the file to this thread.

why reinstalling? if it's a config problem then you just need to change it, if not, reinstalling won't fix anything. It makes you waste time that's all.

 

 

I think the best is always having an autoexec.config in etman and also in all the other mods folders. I never start et with xfire, so I don't know whether it uses some command line options (like +set r_mode ...) or not.

 

So the reasons could be:

 

- 1 xfire explicitly sets an r_mode (probably not)

 

- 2 it's in your config

 

I think the second one is your problem, check the r_mode you have in your etmain config in your profile folder, and also jaymod or whichever mod you play.
