NOLF1 and widescreen?

Recommended Posts

Yo,

 

is it possible to force the game to adopt a widescreen resolution?

I tried changing the defaults.cfg but that didn't really help :(

I've been told if you use a desktop manager, such as NView it can set the widescreen options for you.

I think the Field of View is hard coded in the game. Even if you changed the resolution the resulting image wouldn't be right.

 

By the way, you can do this for Nolf 2 by looking here and here, but you need to tinker some.

ah ok, thanks...I guess I will try this NView thingy.

 

I tried to change the Field of View in NOLF1, but as it turns out I can't find the entry in the autoexe.cfg file :P

It is possible with a mod to set any resolution you want. The mod also adjusts the FOV settings for the environment - only the weapons appear to be incorrectly stretched.

 

There is a thread for this on the widescreengamingforum: http://www.wsgf.org/...lives-forever-1

 

Just download the mod here: http://dl.dropbox.co...608/nolfdll.zip

 

1. Place the nolfdll.rez file into your "custom" folder in the NOLF directory.

2. Open the launcher and add

 

-rez nolfdll.rez ++screenwidth "1360" ++screenheight "768" ++screendepth "32"

 

to the custom commandline options.

 

Done! Start NOLF1 and enjoy it in widescreen :) (Adjust the screenwidth and heigth to your needs)

 

Remember to not touch the display tab or it resets the resolution.

Editing the autoexec.cfg is way more complicated. I tried that and it seems to ignore the "screenbpp" setting, so all textures are in 16bit graphics and don't look very good.

 

Just writing your resolution in the game launcher and treating the .rez file as a mod should be fine.

not sure if this is a related problem, but i've just installed nolf onto a windows 8 rc computer. it runs fine except that the screen is transposed to the right and down, like this:

You could try running it from the windows 8 desktop in compatibility mode instead from the metro interface.
