Hi everyone! Im new around here and Im big Commandos Fan from Chile. Well, as you read on the title I've had some issues with Commandos Destination Paris Mode lately. Here is my issue:

I installed every single patch there is on commandos HQ website in correct order, and then I installed the Widescreen Resolution fix that allows Commandos to run on High Res Settings, I use 1920 x 1080,but that last fix didnt work. When I start a game everything goes well except where the map screen is larger than my screen monitor, if I move the camera around the Visuals or graphics of the game starts tearing, only when the zoom is at 100% , that means if I chop a big map screen in different small cameras such as pressing f5 the game works fine, but i like to play with Full res and I can't.
I would really appreciate if someone could help me out. If you have any specific questions about how I installed the game or the system I run the program feel free to ask. 

This is the website from where I downloaded all the Mod contents for the game.

Pd. English is not my native language so sorry for any Mispellings, if there are :)

Hi frozenman!

Changing the in-game resolution to1920 x 1080 is somehow problematic.


Here's a quote from the Widescreen Gaming Forum (http://www.wsgf.org/...s-2-men-courage):


I've had multiple reports of 1920x1080 not working properly with this game. My guess is that it's simply too high for the engine and therefor a fix is unlikely.


So there's no solution for this problem. The only thing you can do is using the F-keys to split the screen into multiple windows (as you already mentioned) or using a lower resolution. I guess it's time to add this info to the Destination Paris Downloads Site.

I am using 1280x720px and I think it is pretty fine. If you chose a too high resolution, everything will be very small... Too small.

I see , so the problem with the High Res hasnt  been fixed yet. As Lex pointed out it seems it works well on lower resolutions only , I could try to play on a lower res using the same scale  such as 1600x 900, I already tried  1280x720 and it worked OK so its worth the shot.  When I tried to Undo the Wide Screen Patch  it didnt work so I had to Reinstall the Mod , I dont know how to uninstall the wide screen patch only, it would be much easier for  quick tests. Thanks for all the input amigos.
