Hey all,

I have a question concerning two minor graphics glitches in SPWW2. First, while the initial splash screen looks just fine, the main menu screen is really hard to read because of a background that sort of resembles a weird camo - green with a mix of red and blues and stuff. It all makes the text hard to read. Second, in the game, smoke appears in a technicolor fashion with reds and blues mixed in with the gray.

Is this an issue with the game and my graphics card or could it be a result of the fact that I am using the free DL version of the game that doesn't permit screen resolutions beyond 800x600? I suspect the latter because I have a purchased version of SPMBT and can run it at higher resolutions with no graphical glitches.

If these problems are related to a resolution issue, I'll just buy the game. But I don't to buy the game and not resolve the problem.

Thanks!

Okay, I think it is a screen resolution issue. I just ran the game in windowed mode and everything looks fine - small, but fine.

Both games are identical as far as using the same code so it was most likely the resolution. If you have a wide screen it can cause issues as well when trying to run in full screen mode.

Yeah, it seems to be a resolution issue.
