Default Battle for Middle Earth 2 widescreen fix - 04-17-2008, 16:26 | posts: 215

Anyone got a fix for this that works with vista? I've googled but can't find anything useful. I've look at widescreengaming.com, too.

Thanks

Go to:
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\

Look for a folder, it should be something like "My Battle for Middle-earth Files" or "My Battle for Middle-earth II Files." Inside is a file, options.ini. Find this entry:
Resolution = 1024 768

Edit to set your resolution. (you can set any resolution eg. 1280x720, 1440x900 and so on).

I can't find USERPROFILE\Application Data\ anywhere. Can you give me an exact location for the options.ini folder?

Thanks for your help. It's much appreciated.

USERPROFILE = your windows Username....

eg C:\Documents & Settings\BTGMAN\Application Data

make sure you can see hidden files by choosing SHOW ALL in explorer/my computer

@YEAR - many thanks for talking me through this. Yeah, with XP I would have known exactly where to find this folder. But I've just switched to VISTA and I can't find Documents & Settings\My user name\ anywhere ... Are you talking about XP? Will the files be in the same location in VISTA?

In vista your profile is under a "users" folder.

As for the widescreen fix, it cuts off the top and bottom, so it's not too great.

Thanks scatman. So in VISTA the folder is found in C:\Users\my name\Application Data\My Battle for Middle Earth 2 files\ ? I can find the options.ini file there? If I remember correctly, There is a Users shortcut in the start menu?

I guess you should be able to find it there, in users.

I don't have vista, and I can't find my battle for middle earth 2 user profile folder on my pc.

Of course, you could use the windows search function and look for a folder called "battle middle earth 2".

Nope there's no Application data or even any Battle for Middle Earth folders in Users. Searching for 'Battle for Middle Earth' folders gives me the the installed stuff: World Builder, .Exe, Read me, updater etc. No options.ini anywhere.

Anyone give me a location for this options.ini in VISTA?

Cheers guys

This is where it'd be located in XP, right? It's not the same in VISTA. Any idea how I can do the fix in Vista? Cheers

Apparently the folder might be hidden, are you showing hidden folders?

Perhaps there are still hidden folders. I don't know how to show them lol. Vista doesn't make this option obvious, anywhere! Do you know? And, again, thanks for all the help.
