A way to alter the display of your screen to better suit your play style and get rid of the console look, if you didnt already know how.

Dice has made it possible to alter the field of view in the game, as apparently its set up for a console look and feel on a TV.

The FOV setting in settings.ini (in the BFBC2 folder in your My Documents) is for the vertical dimension instead of horizontal.

Find settings.ini and use this calculator to best work out what suits you.

Heres a video about it.

yeah. I use 80 degrees on a 22 or 24", switched to 95 on the 30". But the 30" makes me sick gaming so I have moved it to photoshop duties only.

Looks like someone has maybe created a modified INI for the game. Have a read at the above link and see if it helps. Must teach you how to Google sometime! ;)

lmgtfy.com/?q=empire+earth+vertical+lines :woohoo:

Old games, especially openGL stuff does not behave well on modern PC's

I like a mod of Homeworld 2 called Homeworld Complex.

www.homeworld2complex.com/

I had a hell of a lot of trouble with that one. Love it though, like CnC in space, I dare anyone to beat the AI, I have rarely succeeded, but be warned games can get long.

Would love a multiplayer if anyone else was into it.

ok, you need to install hw2, then homeworld complex.

I'll dig out the info, theres a set of switches you need to use on the program shortcut to get the graphics right.
