    Hi all...

    I've got RTCW and have been playing it on my iMac...is absolultey great...the only "problem" I'm having is that I can't play the game in fullscreen on any res higher than 640x480...I've played it on the higher settings and it still runs a treat on all modes the iMac can handle but not fullscreen, only with black-bars.

    ...Am I asking too much, or does anyone know how I can get fullscreen playback in a higher res?

    Cheers one and all.

    black bars appear because your iMac's screen aspect ratio is 16:10 and 1024*768 resolution is 4:3, it has to have those bars..

    but I think there is a way to run the game fullscreen:

    in your RTCW folder open "Main folder", now open "wolfconfig.cfg" file and modify following lines in it:
    seta r_customheight "1440"
    seta r_customwidth "900"
    and then save document
    i dont know if your mac can handle playing rtcw at such high resolution so if that will be slow put it to 1152 x 720

    I realised all that...tried the change in the config as well...unfortunately doesnt work...may just be that the iMac/ game engine can only handle "stretching" the game at 640x460...have run at 1152x720 as well (the highest game-native res the iMac will support) and still runs a dream, just not in fullscreen unfortuantely.

    hohum...cheers for the help anyway :)
