I am using the Win95 version of the game but for some reason it launches in widescreen mode so that the image is all stretched out. I would just like to play it in its original resolution with the black bars on the side. I edited the DDRAW.INI file as such:

[ddraw]
width=1920
height=1080

I don't want to play in Windowed mode at all so I'm having trouble figuring out how to adjust the actual games resolution because if I change the width and height to 640x480 it plays windowed. I attached a screenshot if that helps at all.

I think I'm just missing something simple...

Well, the 4:3 resolution you'd be looking for is 1440x1080. Unfortunately, trying to run the game at that res in full screen gives me the error "Unable to setup DirectDraw - please check that DirectX is installed"

However, it does run in windowed mode.


EDIT: accidentally a word.

OK I actually found out that editing the renderer in the DDRAW.INI file from OpenGL to GDI lets it run the way I want it to. I chose OpenGL though because I wanted VSync on and the scaling filter set to Linear. The FPS seem to be the highest this way...
Well whatever, I guess I'll just deal with it all stretched out. Still pretty surprising that no one has a fix for this...
A new patch based on the experimental 95 patch makes it possible to run C1/SP in high res (1280x720 and 1920x1080) (amongst a lot of other things) Have a look there for download links: http://www.cwaboard.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9501&p=104654. It's better to start from a fresh install I suppose (the installer lets you clean the GOG install if necessary).
Holy crap! Thank you so much I'm going to give this a shot.
