Windows 7: Crysis Warhead in 1680x1050?

Crysis Warhead in 1680x1050?

So I just installed the RC yesterday, moving up from xp, and I've liked it so far but I'm having issues with Warhead.

For some reason the game doesn't even list 1680x1050 in the resolutions you can choose from. I'm running it on a 8600gt, with the latest nvidia drivers installed (185.85). I know this card is a little underpowered for this game, but it managed it okay on my old xp install.

I checked around on these forums and elsewhere, and tried running the game both in DirectX 9 and DirectX 10, but I get the same issue both ways I do it.The compatibility list that's sticky'd in this forum says it should work fine, but I'm not getting those results.

If anyone has any ideas, or suggestions as to what I could be doing wrong it would be much appreciated!

Hello Stevo,

When I first installed Crysis I got the same issue as you're having now. I figured it couldn't be because of my underpowered Graphics Card, because that's certainly not the case with my GTX 295. The only thing you might be doing wrong is overlooking the scrollbar. If you toggle the menu with the options on the right side is a bar that allows you to scroll down to the maximum resolution your monitor supports. I tried to include a screenshot but I'm sorry, that failed.

Good luck!

Crysis Warhead - Frozen Paradise...Um, What?
