    Hi!

    I followed this guide: https://www.wsgf.org/dr/medal-honor-allied-assault-war-chest
    So I set these in the config file:
    seta r_customwidth "3840"
    seta r_customheight "2160"

    seta r_mode "-1"

    As well as using the modified gamex86.dll.

    It worked fine for the main game. Good FOV UHD resolution.

    But when I try to do the same with the analogous files in mainta/maintt the results are disastrous:
    • The UI is broken, only see the top left part
      • Cursor doesn't work I only see it blink for a moment
    • I can't exit the game alt+F4 is overridden by the game, alt+tab doesn't work, and when I circumvent these via the explorer or calculator medi keys on my keyboard, I only see the desktop flashing for a moment, then I get a black screen, then a BSOD
      • Last time I tried an autohotkey script to kill the game, which stopped at black screen.

    The BSODs are like this(via Bluescreen view):
    Code:
    050321-16875-01.dmp    2021. 05. 03. 1:09:51        0x00000116    ffffe48c`690ca010    fffff805`8853dac0    00000000`00000000    00000000`0000000d    dxgkrnl.sys    dxgkrnl.sys+26222e    DirectX Graphics Kernel    Microsoft® Windows® Operating System    Microsoft Corporation    10.0.19041.867 (WinBuild.160101.0800)    x64    ntoskrnl.exe+3f5c50                    C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\050321-16875-01.dmp    12    15    19041    999 263    2021. 05. 03. 1:10:43   
    
    For some reason it doesn't show the BSOD message (and I didn't write it down), but it's supposed to "VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR", at least that's what googling it got me.

    I don't get it. Every instruction I found says the same thing. But it won't work.
    The expansion packs just break when I add seta r_mode "-1". And that stupid BSOD is just salt in the wound.

    Well, I can only conclude that they botched something for the expansions. They function up until 2560*1440. Above that they break.
    Curiously a totally different game with a totally different engine (No one lives forever) also fails above this exact resolution. And I think I got near identical mouse movements issues before it was patched.
