I just picked up the Command and Conquer ultimate collection, and I'm trying to play Generals. When I launch it, I get http://i.imgur.com/c1z5XAH.jpg. I tried playing it on my secondary monitor and it was fine, albeit low res (1024 x 768). While I can't recall the model number of my TV, it certainly supports 1080p at 60hz. It's hooked up via HDMI. I had a similar problem with C&C3 which I was able to fix by bumping the resolution up to 1080p.

I tried editing the shortcut to try it in Windowed mode and tried changing the resolution to 1080p, but this didn't work. Any suggestions?

System: 3570k, 8GB RAM, 7870, Windows 7.

I don't see any reason beyond invalid resolution, so whatever you did didn't change the resolution/didn't run in windowed mode.

Invalid refresh rate could also do it. Is there any option in game for that?

I found no option for refresh rate. Desktop is running at 1080p 60hz on both displays. Refresh rate was my second thought, but I assumed that if it wasn't possible to change it, it would either run at 60hz or whatever the system was set to. The monitor is a Dell g2410. After digging around in the options, I found the TV model: Sony Kdl 32v5810.

To clarify, editing the shortcut didn't have any effect. When I mirror the displays, the game was still running on the monitor at 1024 x 768 full screen.

Are you editing the shortcut to say -win to get windowed mode?
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Yes. It seemed to be a problem with the launcher. I downloaded and installed http://tinyurl.com/lfd9u2u and now editing the shortcut works. Currently running it at 1080p.
