How to change screen resolution in emergency games

When you install Emergency 4 or older, it is possible that you don’t have a full screen resolution. To fix this, you can change the screen resolution to your own screen resolution in the config files:

  • Go to your Emergency install folder
  • Open em*.cfg, for example: in Emergency 4 it will be em4.cfg. Open it with notepad!
  • Search for: <var name=”r_xres” value=”…” /> and <var name=”r_yres” value=”…” />
  • change the values to your own screen resolution. For example: <var name=”r_xres” value=”1900″ /> and <var name=”r_yres” value=”1200″ />
  • Save the file and play Emergency in full screen resolution
  • enjoy!
