Hi,

Installing from my old GOTY cd v1.33. Windows 10 64-bit OS. I am not able to apply the full 1.4 patch. It errors out and tells me to use 1.4lite. That also errors out. It seems I can't get patched from my fresh install version 1.33 to 1.4 or higher. Any recommendations or ideas as to how I can get this patched so i can play again?

Thanks in advance.

Just download the game from here:
http://homie1337.bestmail.ws/rtcw/misc/RtCW14pack.exe
and use your own cdkey if needed.

Got a new machine with Win 10 Pro...

Obviously everything worked fine on my last machine, but even after executing my config on the new machine (and doing all the patches, etc.) I had wolf displayed in only about 2/5 of my monitor despite having custom resolution defined in my CFG. So I tried modifying the value in the in-game menu, did a /vid_restart, then got this error and can't even get into the game. Any idea what I should do?

Well that's all fine and dandy. I removed the cfg file and was able to at least open wolf again, but I have the same problem. This is what it looks like on my screen (see attachment below) -- nothing like what I had before. I will also post my CFG. Hopefully somebody can help??

My screen resolution is 2560x1440 on my primary monitor.

Probably should also check the high DPI settings by right clicking the icon->Properties->Compatibility tab

Thanks, that worked. The players are narrower than I'm used to them being... perhaps they were stretched in my previous config and that's why I miss so often lol. R_mode -1 feels a lot more sluggish... I just feel like I'm moving a lot slower, and it also seems like the cycling between weapon exchanges is a bit slower. But maybe that's b/c I haven't played a lot recently, IDK.
