Widescreen 1920x1080 Help

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to get Contract Jack to run in 1920x1080, when I put in the command line suggestions that I've found here and else where for 1920x1080 the game crashes. Any idea what I can do?

I believe URA added that to the launcher he made. You might give it a go Download it here

There is a bug that causes the game to crash upon startup if the screen width is greater than or equal to 1760, you should be able to start the game at 1600x900, with my mods (like Project-M) you can change to 1920x1080 once in game and playing (must load a level before changing or it may crash).

 

I have a new widescreen fix in the works for CJ that helps address this problem :)

Hi,

 

I'm trying to get Contract Jack to run in 1920x1080, when I put in the command line suggestions that I've found here and else where for 1920x1080 the game crashes. Any idea what I can do?

First, configure all the game options.

Now use Notepad to open the file "display.kfg" in the game folder "Contract JACK"

 

Then replace the lines

"Screenwidth" "800"

"Screenheight" "600"

On

"Screenwidth" "1920"

"Screenheight" "1080"

 

!! Then save the change and set the file "display.cfg" properties to "read-only"

 

Now, to play Widescreen 1920x1080 click

Shortcut Games - Play - SinglePlayer - LoadGame

 

NOTE:

The drawback of this method is that the game menu does not scale under 1920x1080, so the game menu will be shifted down and you will not see the "Back" and "Quit" buttons

To set the standard screen resolutions from the game menu, press "Options" - "Displey" and then press the "Esc" button on the keyboard

Also, to exit the game, you can press Alt-Tab or Win (the checkbox at the bottom left)

But in the game you will have Full HD :)

So, this doesn't seem to work as mentioned here:

The posted solution (http://www.wsgf.org/dr/contract-jack/en) doesn't work. It crashes when you run the below commandline:


+fovx 106.260208 +fovy 78.0 +fovxinterface 106.260208 +pvmodelfov 65 +pvmodelaspect 1.599954 +ScreenWidth 1920 +ScreenHeight 1200

I can't seem to use a widescreen resolution with this game. Anyone have a fix for it? I've tried everything.

Is there a way to run widescreen in Contract JACK with whatever custom resolution we want?  I've tried Widescreen mods posted here, but nothing works.  The game just crashes when I try to play at 1920 x 1200.

Have you tried URA's Multi-Player launcher

Use command line with 1440x900 resolution, then force 1920x1200 using dgVoodoo2 - http://dege.fw.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2_54.zip
Copy D3D8.dll file from dgVoodoo2_54\MS\ to the game folder.
Run dgVoodooCpl.exe and make this settings:

The above worked for me using this command line in addition:

+screenwidth 1440 +screenheight 900 +fovx 100 +fovy 75 +pvmodelaspect Ratio +fovxinterface 100 +fovyinterface 75

::EDIT::

Spoke too soon.  It works, but the gun models don't show.  Dang it!

Some have also used Nvidia's control panel with some of the games to achieve the resolution.
