I am trying to manually set the resolution of the game Men of War to 1280x1024 to play a mod.

I have tried to use the nircmd to change the resolution but some error message pops up and then the game exits. There are no in-game settings to change the resolution, but I am quite sure it is possible by editing the settings file. However I do not know how to do this.

How is the resolution changed in Men of War

  • Are you talking about Men of War or Men of War 2 , Men of War: Vietnam, etc?

It seems that the settings file can be found at C:\Documents and Settings\Your_User_Name\My Documents\my games\men of war\profiles\username and then find the options.set file. Source.

Note: I do not know how easy it is to edit this file, but having Notepad++ would come in very handy in case it isn't super easy to edit the file.
