I used to run the game at 1280 x 800, but after the update I can only run on 1600x1050 or whatever it is. Is there a way to edit a file somewhere to change it manually? The other resolutions work, but they stretch to fit the screen, and that bothers me.

There have been no changes to the resolution-handling code. By the sounds of things you've confused windowed mode and fullscreen mode behaviour.

Hmm, I'm not sure what happened. But x3 reunion crashed the first time I ran it after the update because of an unsupported video mode.

However I would like to run full screen at 1280x800, but only window mode supports that.

The reason is, my monitor is a 16:10 ratio.

If that's not listed as a full screen resolution then that's because your graphics drivers or monitor drivers aren't returning it as a valid resolution. The game has no control over the values those drivers return. My guess is that a driver update that you happened to install around the same time is responsible for the change in behaviour.

Ok, I'll poke around the config files. Thanks.

just had these problems after a recent reformat... if its the same, its your monitor driver (possibly a windows update changed it?).... the mode your are asking for is not a native windows format(its a mac format)... you need to install your monitor driver that was supplied.

if you were not supplied a driver for your monitor look for a program called 'MonInfo' to make your own driver (it sorted mine).
