Emergency 2014 allows only to select screen resolutions in 4:3 ratios.

How can I set it to the native resolution of my monitor, 1920x1080?

  • @stizzle84 No, I figured it out easily myself. It's not that obvious for everyone, so I wanted to make it easier for others wo have the same problem. Jan 4, 2015 at 9:29

You can set the resolution by editing the configuration file. The file is located in %localappdata%\Quadriga Games\Emergency 2014 (just copy&paste this in the address bar of your Explorer window).

Open em2014.cfg with a text editor that can handle unix line breaks, e.g. Notepad++ or WordPad, it will not look pretty in the windows Notepad.

Edit these lines:

<var name="start_resolution_x" value="1920" />
<var name="start_resolution_y" value="1080" />

Save the file, launch the game.
