    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

    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.
