Windows 7: Battlefield 2 Resolution

Battlefield 2 Resolution

I'm currently running Windows 7 32-bit. After installing Battlefield 2, I noticed that the resolution was not set correctly. Even though I changed the resolution to the max, it hasn't changed anything. Battlefield 2 is showing in a box with a large black line on both sides of the window (seeing as how I'm running the game on a 20" monitor, it's messing with the quality of my graphics). Any ideas on how I can fix this?

It sounds like you're trying to get widescreen support on BF2 a lot of the battlefield games have to have an added item in the start line.
on your desktop icon, right click it and choose properties. on the target line add +widescreen 1 and see if that fixes your issue.

From widescreengaming.net:

Battlefield 2 does not have native widescreen support. To force a custom resolution, edit your game shortcut so it looks like the following:
"C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" +menu 1.15 +widescreen 1 +szx 1440 +szy 900
-or-
"C:\Games\BF2\BF2.exe" +widescreen 1 +szx 2560 +szy 1600
Edit the numbers after '+szx' and '+szy' to match your desired resolution. '+szx' is horizontal and '+szy' is vertical. In the first example, the game would launch in 1440x900 (16:10). In the second example, the game would launch in 2560x1600 (16:10).

Supported Resolutions:

1280 x 800
1440 x 900
1680 x 1050
1920 x 1200

By the way, what's the max resolution you're trying to set it to?
1280 x 1024?
1600 x 1200?

Those are 4:3 resolutions, which is why you'd get the black bars on a widescreen monitor.

Did anyone manage to solve the problem ? No matter what I do, the ingame resolution won't change. I have a widescreen monitor and the game is stretched horizontally.
