Hello,

I just installed Medal of Honor and Spearhead on my new dual 2.5 Powermac. I try to set the resolution to 1920 X 1200 widescreen on my 23inch screen. But every time I try to do that, it scales back down to lowest resolution setting and won't let me do widescreen... Why is that? I have 6800 Untra for my graphic card, I'm pretty sure my computer can handle this game at full settings...

Please help...

Thanks,

Ming

Which version of Spearhead are you using? A patch was released a few months back that adds native support for most of these resolutions - check MacGameFiles.com if you don't have it.

The same problem here. Only Medal of Honor works in wide screen at 1920x1200, but Spearhead and Breakthrough scales to a lower resolution

Here I put the wide screen games testeds at 1920x1200.

-UT2k3
-UT2K4
-Max Payne
-Rainbow Six: Raven Shield
-Quake GL
-Quake II
-XIII
-Spiderman (wide in 1024)
