Software cap in place but it has problems including slowdowns[2]

Widescreen resolution[edit]

Game always scales to desktop resolution - however game does have different internal resolutions: "Normal" equals 1280x544, "High" is 1680x716, and "Ultra" is 1920x816[2]
Game always has the same aspect ratio so there's no way to change the height.
Changing internal resolution manually[citation needed]

Use the command line argument /forcewidth:N where N is your desired screen width.

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Game does have AF with its presets: "Normal" equals 1, "High" is 2, and "Ultra" is 4[2]
Force desired AF manually[citation needed]

Use the command line argument /forceaniso:N where N is your desired AF from 1-8.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

Game has always on 4xAA. If you are seeing aliasing see Widescreen resolution.[2]
Force desired AA manually[citation needed]

Use the command line argument /forceaa:N where N is your desired AA from 2-16.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Second mouse pointer is on the screen[edit]

Fast forwarding is slow and lagging[edit]

This is most likely issue with frame rate capper which was included with patch so that players over 60 Hz monitors wouldn't get speedup effect.
As there's no way to disable the capper only known workaround at the moment is to play earlier version of the game.
