Can you try setting 75Hz at 16:9. If you cannot, simply lower the res and it should work. Then try war2 again?

umm don't think so.. my graphic control panel only allows 58,59,60.

I just thought of something. Go in your war2 folder and backup aquit.cfg. Try playing with some of the settings...They control how the ddraw.dll works.

Exactly what I have/use...What is your graphics card brand. I had an nvidia card before and updating drivers messed war2. I had to use a specific older driver version. Conversely, I now have a Radeon and while its drivers suck goats ass, the latest is pretty good. Fixed a number of issues and war2 related display problems were solved.

UPDATE: Managed to fix all problems.

Problem 1: The aspect ratio was fixed by changing the widening rule in my monitor, from "auto" to "manual". Basically switching to manual added the black bars and presented the game in 4:3 .

Problem 2: The directdraw.dll was causing my in game graphics and units to move very slow.

The problem was happening because I had left my extended monitor on while playing War2, for some reason this was causing the in game graphics and units to lag?

Still not exactly sure why...if anyone has any thoughts on this would be great to hear from you! Thanks!
