    Angry Battlefield2 on MBP-what screen res????
    Hi I have just installed BF2 on my new MacBook Pro, what screen res should I be runnig it at? as it runs in the right ratio on 1280x800 but to be honest thats rubbish res for playig that game, I used to get it looking 10x better on my iMac which had a screen res of 1680x1050.

    when I try the other resolutions you can't see the bottom of the screen which is a real issue for playing the game. Anyone have any ideas for the best res to play this at as I am dissapointed if 1280x800 is my best option!

    The native resolution on the 15" MBP is 1440x900. Not sure about the 17" model.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Hi,

    yea I know that, but there isn't an option in the game for that res, you can force it by editing the properties in the shortcut, but it doesn't load when I do that, but it did when I forced it on my imac???
