How to run Ahoi mod without Widescreen GUI?

Post  Elkavi on Sat Apr 07, 2012 12:06 am

Hello!

I was trying out the AHOI mod for FTM3.5 and when i ran it for the first time i noticed that you need to run atleast 1280x768 resolution to fit all the stuff to the screen, however i dont want to run that since it slows down the game alot and i have 4:3 screen so i fancy the 1024x768 resolution , is there a way to run the AHOI mod without the widescreen gui?

There is only the old version of the AHOI-Mod called AHOI-Treasure GEM-one here: HOI-Treasure GEM-one at paradox
It is not that different from the current version. So you would have a similar experience.
Just make sure you also dl the Hotfix2 for FTM 3.05..

You need to log in to get it there.
If I find time, I'll update with links to all the old versions and info. But right now, I'm busy bringing the new version on track.
With the new comming version having so many new techs, 1024*768 will be no option in the future anyway.. Wink
Btw. why did the slightly bigger ress slows your comp already that much down? I could also play it with bigger res on my old notebook with the 1280*768 and even if the GPU should not be good enough..

Cheers,

It slows down a lot for some reason , remember 10 FPS on 1936 means very much slower performance around the war , besides i would have to resize my monitor every time i would play the mod Sad But im getting new screen soon so should atleast play on widescreen.

ps. Cant quote you since you have link in your post Smile

Why would you need to reszize?
If you change the game settings the game starts with that choosen resolution. That shouldn't change your desktop settings.?

Because 4:3 screen doesnt naturally fit within the widescreen resolutions , in such it will leave out some crucial info or i would be forced to resize(from monitor settings not in windows but in the monitor itself) every time.

But you cold use 1280*1024?
That is a 4:3 res and you should be able to see all.
At least I could use it on my old CRT with 1280*1204 max.. 17"..
