How to set Video refresh rate at gamestartup

Post by Henry »

Hello all,

the game didn't start proper, because it set the video mode to a video mode not supported by my montior. I use an LCD at 60Hz and I don't know, how to tell this to the game at startup.

You could try using different bits per pixel, using a different resolution, or windowed mode. See for the manual page that details all the options.

Your video driver really should not advertise that it supports modes that your display can't handle -- if you have an old display you might be able to configure the driver accordingly.
