These instructions will have you editing configuration files (.con) to manually change the game's graphics settings for the higher & wider
resolutions of today's monitors. To edit these files you can use NOTEPAD.exe which comes with all versions of Windows, or you may
use another text editor of your choosing. NOTE: The game must be closed to edit the settings, and you will need to know the resolution of your desktop.


WARNING: MAKE A BACKUP OF EACH FILE THAT WILL BE CHANGED IN THIS PROCESS

INSTRUCTIONS FOR 32 bit OPERATING SYSTEMS (Windows XP, Vista 32bit, Windows7 32bit)
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • STEP ONE
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. OPEN this file:
      C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\VideoDefault.con
      ------------------------------------------------------------
    2. ADD this line (if it doesn't already exist):
      renderer.fieldOfView 1.1
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • STEP TWO
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. OPEN the following Files:
      C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Default\Video.con
      C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Default\VideoCustom.con
      C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Custom\Video.con
      C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Custom\VideoCustom.con
      ------------------------------------------------------------
    2. LOCATE this line of text (For each the above files):
      game.setGameDisplayMode 800 600 32 0

      Explanation of these specs settings:
      • 1st set: 800 default setting = Resolution WIDTH in pixels
      • 2nd set: 600 default setting = Resolution HEIGHT in pixels
      • 3rd set: 32 is what you should use = Color Depth in bits
      • 4th set: 60 is what you should use = Refresh Rate in Hz

    3. REPLACE the above specs with your resolution specs: (CAUTION: spaces must be between the resolution specs)
      game.setGameDisplayMode 1680 1050 32 60
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      (NOTE: The specs "1680x1050" used here are for a 22" LCD monitor. Your desktop resolution will depend on the
      size/type of your monitor. The specs you use may be different than the example used here.
      )

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • STEP THREE
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. MAKE FILES "READ-ONLY": After editing the 4 files above, you must make all 4 files
      read-only. This will prevent the game from overwriting your specs and entering
      the default specs.

      To make a file READ-ONLY:
      • Right Click on the file
      • Select "Properties"
      • Check the "READ-ONLY" checkbox
      • Click "OK"
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • STEP FOUR
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. START THE GAME: When you start the game you will notice that the interface
      hasn't necessarily changed. However, when the map loads you will see that
      it is in the new resolutions you entered.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • FINISHED
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------
INSTRUCTION FOR 64 bit OPERATING SYSTEMS (Windows XP 64bit, Vista 64bit, Windows7 64bit)

The only difference between the 32bit instruction and the 64bit instructions is the path where the files are
located. In 64bit systems the "Program Files" folder has a suffix of (x86). The remaining path names are the same.

C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\
