Inadequat Monitor Resolution

Postby Steve5001 » 23 Oct 2017, 16:57

Hey, when i host a lobby or want to join one in FAF, i get a black screen, then an error sound and after that i get a messagebox with the Message : Inadequat Monitor Resolution (minimum is 1024x768). I tried alread setting my Monitor resolution (standard 1920x1080) to 1280x1024 but i get still the error. I also changed the resolution in Supreme Commander to 1280x1024 but still the same error.

Can you run the game without FAF with no issues?
If you simply launch the game from steam/dvd? do you get the same error?

Please make a backup of your game.prefs file ("C:\Users\_YourName_\AppData\Local\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander Forged Alliance\Game.prefs") and then see if deleting the file changes anything.

So i found an answer to the error: In the folder C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin there i an exe called ForgedAlliance.exe. I opened the Compability of this exe and unchecked the Checkbox : Start with 640 x 480 resolution. I also attached a Picture.
