Widescreen & Resolution workaround

Hi all. I have found a fix without using any third party software that fixes the resolution and widescreen of Spellforce. I've tested it on my Asus N53SV laptop running windows 7 just now and it works for me.

I'm running 1366x768 resolution and this fix will make the game window mode so you will have to find a resolution suitable for you in window mode, this just means changing values I will detail below until its the size you want it to be.

STEP 1: Go to your game directory which is usually located at C:\Program Files\JoWOOD\SpellForce for Winxp users and C:\Program Files(x86)\JoWOOD\SpellForce.

STEP 2: Right click on the config.lua file and select Open With. Through the new window select to open with a program from your computer. If all programs are not showing then click on all programs in the list and it will show more. Then select to open the file with WORDPAD. DO NOT USE NOTEPAD!!! I can't stress this enough, notepad at first will show the data all jumbled while wordpad will have it all clean.

The data you will see will look like this...

Code:
Stored =
{
	LastPlayedAddOn = "a",
	LastPlayed = "A",
}
UserInterface =
{
	SkipTutorial = 0,
}
Graphic =
{
	AvoidExcessiveFrameBuffering = 0,
	VSync = 1,
	FlatShades = 1,
	EffectLightmap = 1,
	EnvironmentMapping = 1,
	AdornMode = 2,
	ObjectFadeDistance = 75,
	ShadowType = 1,
	TextureQuality = 3,
	Filtering = 0,
	ScreenResolution = 3,
}
You need to add two simple lines under ScreenResolution which are...

WindowWidth = 1350,
WindowHeight = 690,

You can change the numbers to the resolution you want but REMEMBER, the game will load in a window mode which means you need to set it a bit lower. My resolution is 1366x768 so you can see above the res is lower to fit on the screen as it won't be above your taskbar.

The end result of the file should look like this...

Code:
Stored =
{
	LastPlayedAddOn = "a",
	LastPlayed = "A",
}
UserInterface =
{
	SkipTutorial = 0,
}
Graphic =
{
	AvoidExcessiveFrameBuffering = 0,
	VSync = 1,
	FlatShades = 1,
	EffectLightmap = 1,
	EnvironmentMapping = 1,
	AdornMode = 2,
	ObjectFadeDistance = 75,
	ShadowType = 1,
	TextureQuality = 3,
	Filtering = 0,
	ScreenResolution = 3,
	WindowWidth = 1350,
	WindowHeight = 690,
}
STEP 3: Once you have done step 2, save the file, create a shortcut on your desktop if you have not done so already, right click on the shortcut on your desktop and select properties.

STEP 4: In the shortcut tab you will have a section called TARGET which shows the directory your game is in. At the end after the " you need to type -window

So it will look similar to this

Code:
"D:\Games\SpellForce Platinum\SpellForce.exe" -window
Once you have done this, apply, save it, it may give you a warning that you need to be administrator permission so just accept that. Run the game, if the resolution needs tweaking, exit the game, open your config.lua file and tweak the values on the width and height and run the shortcut again and keep doing this until you find the value that is right for you.

I've just gotten this to work on my Asus N53SV laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit so I hope this helps the rest of you! Hopefully moderators will see value in this thread and make it a sticky. ENJOY!

Resolution Fix for Spellforce Platinum Edition

Nothing worked for 100% with the workarounds that were available. AMD graphic cards are not much favored by Spellforce. Including the above workaround.

As per 27 june 2016 there is a patch that works finally with my Radeon 290 x2 on windows 10 64bit on driver crimson 16.7.3

The patch is in German however but works flawlesly on my English installation.

This is the link : http://www.validstrategies.com/fileb...n-fix#overview

To whomever made this my eternal gratitude.
