nope,it will always be 640*480 or 1024*768.Or you'll need the source code for it.

Volition doesn't have the copyrights.Intercrap has it so if interplay doesnt give them permision to release the source code you cant play it in a higher resolution and besides it would take to long to modify all the files whit it.And isn't 1024*768 enough?

More resolution: More detailed graphics! And with the age of fs2... Well, we need to run fs at least with the resolution of 1600!

Could you edit something in the registry?

I'm not sure. It may be possible, given that we could increase the texture resolution through the registry - but we have to remember that this is an old engine, and even if we can push the engine further than 1024*768, it may not be able to handle it. It might just... crash.

In the much older DukeNukem3D, it was possible to increase the resolution , by tweaking the registries too, to huge resolutions (1600*1400 for the most crazy peoples -originally Duke3D has either 320*240 or 640*480... I put it in 800*600)

the key value (for mine) says 3DFX Glide (1024x786). I'm not going to bother changing it, because I don't care. But thats what you would change...

Yes I saw that registry key too. I was trying to find out if it changed anything.  Looks like I'll have to try myself...

No it doesn't work .    Instead it punishes you by sending you back down to the lowest resolution possible

I'd rather have a faster engine than greater resolution.

And I just want more ships!
