Encountered something odd with WWConfig with the following TT version.

Nothing game breaking in any way but it took me a while to realize where my resolution was hidden Razz

I currently have 2 identical screens connected and in WWConfig the resolution order for each is different, as well as not really located in a logical order.
Additionally, the second screen entry contains a resolution (2715x1697) that it isn't able to display anyway. The max resolution for these screens is 1920x1200.

wconfig probably just asks Windows or DirectX to provide it with the list of available resolutions... do you get a similar set of available resolutions in Windows display panel?

I have two identical monitors myself and it only displays appropriate resolutions and in the correct order for me.

In windows itself everything is fine; correct order and no incompatible resolutions are shown.
Haven't checked a different game yet since I have these monitors though so I'll have to do that later.

4.2 has a newer version of WWConfig that has fixed resolutions settings in it (I brought it up when my laptop didn't display any correct resolutions in it). However, jonwil didn't upload the file, I would but my laptop's hard drive is currently USB'd to my main computer as a do a full clone and defrag of it.

For example, on my laptop it only listed two resolution spots, 800x600, and a second spot on the slider, if you slid it it displayed some other weird resolution, but then when you reopened wwconfig or restarted the game it was back at 800x600.

If you mean 4.2 as it is in the patcher, then that is the one I'm having issues with (see version info in the OP).

If that 4.2 WWConfig version is not on the patcher, upload it when you are able to please. I'll then be able to give it a go and see if that version does indeed solve the problem.

Give it a try even if it looks like the same version.

Edit:
Actually I'm now getting 1440x900 listed after 1920x1080 as well on my main computer, but I only have one screen.

Indeed; however I've seen several other games do it as well now, so it much just be a side effect of the direct x api.
