Hi my son has got a new HD television, I tried to load battlefield 2, it worked fine before on a crt monitor, but i think the resolution was set high, the problem i think i have is that although the hd has a high resolution, i dont think it is as high as the game was set, I have tried to change the resolution via the game, but cant find any way of doing this, may have missed something though, the problem is i cant load the game to change the resolution, with out reinstalling the game, which means all the patches again.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

I'm assuming that when you try and launch the game the monitor is giving you an 'Out of range' or 'No signal' message or just going blank.
In that case:

To force a resolution that's not listed in the video options, right-click the BF2 shortcut icon and add +szx 1280 +szy 1024 to the end of the Target command. If you have a widescreen monitor, make sure you change +fullscreen to +widescreen.
(You should set the resoloution to whatever is native for your monitor, i just used 1280x1024 as an example.)

Or you can plug your old CRT in for a moment and then set the resoloution down, then plug the HD TV back in again.

Yep, right-click on the shortcut, click 'Properties'.
Under the 'Shortcut' tab will be the 'Target' line, just add those commands at the end.

Hi I have tried this with no luck, so I thought I would uninstall the game and reinstall, this way you get to choose your settings, but still no good, The disk loads and you get the initial BF2 screen prior to loading, which you always get, then it usually flicks off and then the screen loads the main game, but when it tries to load the main screen it just stays on the desk top, I just dont understand this as it worked with the crt screen.
Any thoughts ?

Yes everything else works, although the HD television has a irregular resolusion setting, not the norm, I tried to load the game with a lower setting than the TV so it should accept, maybe because the resolution isnt the exact same as the game maybe it doesnt recognise ? resolution 1366 x 768 hd TV. Just dont know
