    Any of you figured out how to manually set the resolution in F.E.A.R. to 1280x1024? It is not an option in game, just goes from 1152x846 to 1600x1200.

    Find the setting.cfg file

    \Documents and Settings\All Users\[Shared] Documents\Monolith Productions\FEAR

    open Settings.cfg file with notepad

    Change to

    "ScreenWidth" "1280"
    "ScreenHeight" "1024"

    The thing is the game does not support it, which can result in performance issues, and reduced image quality, as it most likely just stretches 1280x960 like what BF2 did. I have to set it to 1280x1024, cuz thats my monitors native resolution, but I wish the game actually supports it.

    i don't get why game devs don't do this... i mean a LOT of people own lcd's and the ones with 1600x1200 native cost too much.

    My Dell 20.1" LCD is native 1600x1200 and game runs and looks great at that res but, looking for more performance

    i have it set to 1280 x 1024, and it runs fine 30-100fps - no issues here.

    My TFT monitors native is 1280x1024, but I just force a custom res of 1280x960 in Nvidia control panel, then set monitor scaling to centered. This gives small black lines at the top and bottom of the picture, but maintains the aspect ratio.... It's a little easier on your vid card too!!

    That's what I do in HL2-based games, but I use 1280x720 to get a greater horizontal fov. (it uses a widescreen aspect ratio)

    I like 1280x1024 as well, thanks for the info, hopefully it wont drop my performance a whole lote from 1024x768 cuz as of now im getting pretty decent frame rates in FEAR!

    But BF2 still own3s FEAR!
