    Does anyone know of any commandline util/prog that I can use to change (the screen) resolution?

    I want to use it in a batch file to change resolution before and after I run an other application.

    I know there is a program called Vidres that you can install that allows you to change vidres from command line and using batch, but I don't know if it works for XP,

    http://www.jddesign.freeserve.co.uk/vidres.txt

    you can read more about it there.

    other then that I don't think there is a native NT command to do it =/

    You could do it with the system registry...but you would have to also reset windows every time you wanted it to change...which, (I'm not sure) you might be able to with a batch file, but I don't really know.

    thanks!

    this will let me set up a batch file to automatically fall back to 60hz when I play games.

    speeds up my fps and doesn't seem to flicker at all in the game.
