Now here a thing thats REALLY REALLY been bugging me, the answer to which I hope someone can answer.

Why do some games detect higher resolutions than others.

I have a Geforce 6800 GT running with a 26 inch LG LCD Screen, which technically is a LCD/TV but has a DVI port, and some games don't show up as being able to go beyond 1024 x 768 whereas other games allow me to go up to the maximum 1284 x 768. Don't get me wrong, all games look amazing in here but it would be nice to plonk all games up to the max.

Any help, advice or guidence would be very much appreciated. :eek:

Not all games support 1284x768. Most games only support common resolutions (1024x768, 1280x1024, 1600x1200)

More often than not, you can edit a game's .ini folder for custom resolution's. I had to do this for Doom3 and UT2004 when I was trying to set up a wide screen monitor.

Thank you for your reply. I very much appreciate it.

I'll take a look at some ini files just in case.
