Yup, it is a shame. Your only option is to try hex editing the game exe to find the hex equivalent of 1920x1080 and replace it with another resolution and see if it works. 1920x1080 in hex in the exe would be 8007 0000 3804 (If I remember everything correctly that is, there might be two empty bytes between 8007 0000 0000 3804) The number you'd replace it with would have to converted to hex http://www.binaryhexconverter.com/decimal-to-hex-converter Add a 0 to the first digit and then byte swap the number. 1920=0780 >8007 You might try looking without byte swapping too. You never know. Something to do with Endianess? (Not a programmer) If you knew what to look for, I wonder if Cheat Engine would be of any help as well. I'd really like to find a way to hack higher resolutions easily into games that are old or ported poorly. (Like most Tecmo Koei games ) It works with every game that has Nvidia TXAA only (Because it's based on MSAA) and the quality will greatly vary depending on the game's implementation of TXAA and MSAA.
