Hi mclarenmerc22,

Sure. You can change the resolution in the f1graphics.cfg:

XXXX ; [RELEASE] Game 3D Horizontal Resolution
XXXX ; [RELEASE] Game 3D Vertical Resolution

Instead of XXXX enter your resolution and save the file.

Greetings

mclarenmerc22: But the game look stretched.

This is the case because GP4 is originally made for a 4:3 aspect ratio.
If 16:9 is not to your liking then 16:10 (as the screen resolution 1680 x 1050 on a 1920x1080 HD-Monitor) may be a reasonable compromise .

Adding to the question. I have the game running in 16:9 but GPxPatch in game info is all squished to the left now. Mainly the time to car ahead and behind is what bother the most. Believe there is a way to adjust it for 16:9 but can't seems to find it.

Anyone can help there?

Thanks
J

GPxPatch adjusts to your screen resolution so there should not be any issue - can you post a screenshot?
