how to run alien swarm at 1920x1200

Hi all,

long time no see.

i got the GoG version of UT2004 and it it supports my native widescreen resolution, but when i installed alien swarm i only get presented with 4:3 aspect ratio resolutions to choose from.

is there any reason why alien swarm is more fussy?
is there any way around this?

many thanks

just deal & run it in 4:3 stretched because your aim will be affected otherwise

Yeah. Unfortunately it's a true fact that your crosshair will lie to you and the bullets will not fly true if you run ASw in another aspect ratio (oh man, somebody tell me it's not true).

You can use the setres 1920x1600 command in the console. You can do other resolutions that way as well. As Moses pointed out, your aim will be affected on widescreen resolutions.

I just put up a patch which adds widescreen support on the Alien Swarm site.

It's fairly untested, so let me know if there's any major problems.

If only the United States Army could release patches for their games that swiftly after a problem is detected.

hey-ho,

i extracted the new patch to the UT2004 folder, and i now have a subfolder inside that folder called: /AlienSwarm_13_to_134_Patch/ in addition to the main /AlienSwarm/ folder and the: /AlienSwarm_13_or_131_to_132_Patch/ folder, but.......

the settings haven't changed, i still only have 4:3 reslutions with the top resolution remaining as 1600x1200.

any ideas?

edit -

i've noticed that the 132 patch folder is empty except for the readme, whereas the new 134 patch folder has subfolders called Maps and System, should those two subfolders be written to the main AlienSwarm folder?

Is this patch an optional update?

Yes, it should be network compatible with 1.32.
