    I have a rather stupid question, well at least it seems stupid to me cuz I can't find the settings in any *.cfg files but...

    Does anyone know how I can set the game (couter strike) to a resolution of 1280x1024?... my current settings display 1280x960 and then they skip to 1600x1280.

    thanx!

    I personally havent seen much on this, I saw that they updated the screensizes to allow 1600 x 1200, but I'm pretty sure what you see is what you get.

    so what ure saying is that there is no way to set it to 1280x1024 ... I find that very hard to beleive!

    there must be a file I can edit for this..

    anyone??

    pleez! :(

    I had a look around and I still believe I am right, the screen sizes dont seem to be controlled by config files, only the engine....

    If you got the source for Half Life you might be able to edit the source to allow it.....

    Is it not in the CFG, its in an graphics file, im not at home so don't know what its called,

    There is a DIR I can't remeber the name off which has graphics options in.
    c:\sierra\half-life\*here*\

    In there should be a TXT file and some extension, try wordpad :D

    God speed!

    I can run my cs at 1600x1200. I'm using a Geforce 4 TI 4400 and it runs smooth all day long. 60fps and it never drops below.

    You can try doing it through the console with these cvars:

    vid_config_x 1280 //(sets horizontal screen resolution)

    and

    vid_config_y 1024 //(sets vertical screen resolution)

    If that works for you, then you can try adding them to your "config.cfg" file in your cstrike folder. However, there's no default setting for this res combination in HL and no text scheme associated with it. I'll dink around with it some and post back.

    ACK!! None of what I posted seems to work!! lol I've been goofing around with it and don't even see those cvars anymore after doing a cmdlist and cvarlist. (maybe valve removed them?)
    I've also been poking around several HL/CS sites and besides some ppl stating they're running at that res, nothing! I even thought I'd try d3d but that res isn't available there either. :(

    1600x1200? (you've got the machine for it ;))

    yeah! thanx for the info I do have a machine for it but the issue here is my currently cs addicted girlfriend whom I bought the same machine I own, only I didn't have enough for a new monitor so i gave her an old one I used to have,...

    not too bad. a 17" toshiba that only supports 1280 x 1024, no biggie really if I can't get it to run at that res. but it would be nice to be able to, it sucks that they would do this to the game...

    thanx alot! :]

    1600x1200 @ 100fps does the job!
