So I can either edit a simple file quickly and easily with the info he used, or go out and spend another $500 or so to upgrade equipment? Tough choice. Thanks, but I'll take his fix over yours.

Well what are you rocking taelith?
If you're using some weak sauce gpu like an 8600GT or some laptop pos you might as well shell out. And check your prices again.. Last I checked 9800GT's could be had for $90 and HD4850's could be had for $115.

When I do this to get it running at 1680x1050 everything looks good but I get a one inch black bar on the left side of my screen.

and yes I am using a 1680 x 1050 native resolution monitor.

I have a current-gen video card with 512MB of memory and the usual high resolutions are locked to me, leaving me with the fecal ones. Considering that I play on a 1080p monitor, I'd rather be able to use something higher than what the game allows me.
I'll try this out later, thank you for the fix. I hope it works.

the running in windowed mode and changing the resolution to desired one , then quiting the game and running it maximized worked for me.
only problem is my mouse cursor wont go away.
i have an Ati Radeon HD4870x2 1 gb video card
and i can only select up to 1280x800 resolution
which is a bit strange.
i hope they fix it.

Hi, I cannot find the given hex value with a search in the hex editor, even though I followed the instructions. I'm not sure if the other video settings (vsync, shadows, etc.) can affect the values that I'm supposed to edit..?
Anyway, Masterblarg, or anyone that has been able to "fix" their resolution with hex editing, could you please give me the offset of the hex values for the resolution in the prototypeenginef.dll file? It would help me to locate the values I would need to edit in order to be able to set the resolution to 1280x1024.

Ok when I changed both shadows and texture quality to "low", I found the hex value. However, now that I change it, it always resets back to 800x600 when I start the game (even if the dll file is set to read only). Any ideas?

Thanks for this information, I'm going to go try it right now and see if it works. Considering I have an 8800GTS 320MB, putting down almost $300 for a graphics card when it came out and then having to run ANY game at 1024x768 on my 1680x1050 monitor is annoying, to say the least. This game is more CPU-intensive than GPU-intensive, and it's stupid to restrict things based on the GPU. I can play Crysis at medium settings at 1680x1050, so I'm sure my graphics card can handle this game on high settings at the same resolution.
