Hello guys.

First off credit for finding out why the npcs numbers come up and stops the issue should be directed to this forum post on this link, this Is a guide mainly for those who have issues with getting widescreen resolution issues for the expansions

http://forum.dosclan.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=80 - credit for NPC fix. Follow his guide first and if it doesn't work for you for the expansions come back here and go the paragraph that starts with "now the expansions are a bit more complicated"

I had a huge difficulty getting this games expansions to use widescreen because it kept resetting their own settings and would like to write a small guide on how these issues might be solved for others as they were solved for me.

First you need to install all 3 games before starting any of them. I myself am using the 10th aniversary edition but it should work all the same.

Ok lets first get the original game out of the way first. Boot up the game and setup all your settings without changing the resolution to your liking, this includes controls, sound and advanced options. Once you have done this close the game and go into Main/Config and you will find the config file unnamedsoldier.cfg. (for the expansion packs Mainta is Spearhead while Maintt is Breakthrough.)

You want to add these lines under the very last seta option at the bottom of your text editor just above the //
seta r_customwidth "1920" //set this variable to whatever you want the resolution to be.
seta r_customheight "1080" //set this variable to whatever you want the resolution to be.
seta r_mode "-1"
seta ui_console "1"
seta developer "0" //setting to 1 will cause number of npcs to display.

Once these settings have been added. Save the config close it and boot up medal of honor allied assault to see if the settings changed. An easy way to do this is to use Steam and add a steam shortcut and when the message that says "press shift tab top open the community screen appears" you can see if it has changed or not to your typical reslolution and is really handy. If for some reason this did not work, delete the config and try again but this time after setting up your settings START A NEW GAME! Once it has finished loading "in this case you should be in the back of the truck, quit the game and add those lines again (make sure there aren't any duplicates using the find option in your text editor (Ctrl+F by default)

If it worked congratulations! First step completed.

Now the expansions are a bit more complicated and it wasn't explained in the NPC fix from the other forum. it took me an hour just to get the resoluitions working properly. While the instructions are similar YOU MUST START A NEW GAME or the settings will always reset. So repeat the steps for Medal of Honor Allied assault start a new game then add the lines to the unnamed soldier.cfg in the main folders of the expansion packs. Do one expansion at a time and hopefully it should work for you guys.

Remember to have seta developer as 0 or you will get that annoying NPC numbers on the bottom left of your screen.
If you wish to change your FOV I think you might need to do it in the config because turing off developer i think turns off the ability to change the FOV.

Good luck and have fun!

You cannot change the FOV in the config file; you can only do this in the game and only if you use

seta developer "1"

in the config file. So you either have to live with a wrong FOV or with those NPC numbers being displayed.
I can't get this to work for spearhead.

I followed your instructions and it works great for the main game and the two extensions :)
Thank you !

Your post should be sticked on top of this forum ;)
I bought the game from GOG. Funny thing is SH and BT work fine. AA simply does not launch in full screen mode. I have tried almost everything. Including a MOH_REVIVALversion too. AA simply does not launch. I can hear music and the game stays minimized no matter what I do!
Your unnamedsoldier.cfg will look like this

seta r_mode "-1"
seta r_customheight "1080"
seta r_customwidth "1920"
seta ui_console "1"
seta developer "1"

r_mode need write before your own resolution.
Also if this not work at first game start you can write in properties of game shortcut in the end this

"+set developer 1 +set thereisnomonkey 1 +set cheats 1 +set ui_console 1"
Without this "
If you see a NPC thing delete everything but write +set cl_playintro 0.This will skip intro
Oh and ofc bcs you delete this you can't use a cheats and fov setting but you can add in unnamedsoldier.cfg a - seta "fov" 106 (106 it's a fov for 1920x1080 resolution) also make file read only or your fov gonna disable to normal (80) after restart.game If this nor working you can add at game shortcut properties - set "fov" 106 .
This will gonna look l ike this "D:\Medal of Honor Allied Assault\moh_Breakthrough.exe" set "fov" 106

Mainta folder for Medal of Honor Allied Assault - Spearhead
Maintt folder for Medal of Honor Allied Assault - Breakthrough
