So I recently got a new moniter. But for some reason I can no longer play DoD:S.

It plays the valve intro but then completely exits the game. Anyone have any idea's whats going on? :o

sounds like the old screen resize isn't compatible with the new monitor

Iam pretty sure theres a setting for the screen res in one of the config files.

I can't check atm.

visit the www.ukcs.net forums iam sure one of the guys will help.

Try this:

Open steam, go to your games tab, right click Day of Defeat: Source, click on properties.

From here, click on Set Launch Options. Now, add these two things:

-width 1280 -height 1024

But replace the width and height numbers with valid values for your new monitor's resolution. Hit ok, then launch the game, and you should be able to change your settings in your video options in game to the correct settings for your new monitor, which will allow you to remove the launch options in the future.

As far as what resolution your monitor supports, it should say in the manual or on the manufacturer's website.
