[bf1942] OT: Odd screen resolutions

Edit the Video.con and Videodefault.con files, change the values to 1280 
1024 manually (or whatever value you want), then make the files read only.

However, I've tried this, and there is a problem. The in-game fonts are 
designed for a 4:3 ratio, not 5:4, so assuming your native resolution is 
1280x1024 (or something that is a 5:4 ratio instead of 4:3), the fonts 
become almost unreadably bad.

Here's an example:


Personally, I find that my LCD scales to native resolution well enough 
that I can run at 800x600 or whatever and it looks fine (and the fonts 
look normal too).
