    Screen resolution issue

    Hi guys,

    Apologies if this is posted somewhere else, I couldn't find it.

    I've followed the steps and downloaded the game etc however when I'm trying to load it I get the error below:

    Unable to initialise the graphics in full screen mode please ensure DirectX has been installed (it has) and that the graphics adaptor supports 800 x 600 pixel resolution in full screen.

    I've tried adjusting the screen resolution but no joy.

    Any idea what I can do to resolve this?

    Thanks

    Thanks for response mate.

    I can't do that because I'm getting the error message on trying to play the game for the first time

    Do you get to home page? If so, go to game settings from there and change

    Otherwise

    Also, Try install the Tapani 2.21.1 patch, change the resolution to something a little bigger

    Sounds like you are running on small screen with insufficient height resolution. Delete the game.cfg file from the game folder (this may need to be done from the Virtual Store). It will clear your settings and reset to full screen mode.

    Its simple really.. Find a pic. Resize it to the size you want (Mine is 1024*600).. Save as Windows Bitmap Image. Now you'll need to change it to .rgn by Using "convert to rgn". Once you have converted it to rgn you need to rename the file " 1024_600.rgn " Then put this into the data folder. (You'll need to delete match.mbr and game.mbr) Load up the game and disable background changes. Should then display the pic you chose.
    Just followed these instructions to the letter, but when I open the game all I have is a black background. Anyone got any ideas where I'm going wrong?

    Cheers.

    The Bitmap needs to be 24bit. If it's 16bit or 32bit won't load correctly. Should be able to change it in Paint

    Pretty sure it already was, but I just tried again with a 24bit Bitmap image and it's still just displaying a black background. No idea where I'm going wrong.

    You will have to play windowed mode on newer laptops.

    Error - Unable to initialise the graphics in full screen mode

    Hi

    Does any one else have this message come up?
    'Error.
    Unable to initialise the graphics in full screen- please ensure that DirectX has been installed correctly and that your graphics adaptor supports 800x600 pixel resolution in 16 bit colour.'

    I have changed the screen to 800x600 and uninstalled/reinstalled the disc, does anyone have any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    You would have to create a background for the game yourself. Easy enough to do and there is a graphics forum which has a step by step guide to doing so.

    Try running cm0102_GDI.exe instead, should allow you to bypass the issue
