CSS resolutions keep reseting.

Postby Disturbed1 on Wed Aug 08, 2007 3:24 pm

Ok so having just got a new lcd 22" monitor im running CSS in 1280*800.

But after i say restart steam up or my computer the next day to play again the game has reverted back to normal 4:3 apsect ration at a lower resolution.

My question is why is this happening?can i delete a file which will get rid of the graphics settings and i can run the game to make a new file which hopefully keeps this widescreen resolution?

I take it you're running Dx8? and you should be able to just set it though your config so it loads it everytime or a command line.

To get it back you need to add -dxlevel 9 to the launch options, removing dxlevel 81 on its own wont change anything :wink:

Just remove the -dxlevel 81 from the launch options and then adjust your settings they should then save and not reset 8)

I add this in the launch options for my CSS

-dxlevel 81 -width 1280 -height 1024

That way it keeps the resolution the same. Not sure about aspect ratio...

I was going by the thought that he might be able to change the numbers himself :P.
