It's strange, according to this website, the 1440x900 resolution should work. FYI I'm running the game in 1600x900. Have you tried with lower, yet custom, resolution. Did it work ?

Yeah, i'm running 800x600, game works fine but nametags and such are all messed up.

I should also be able to run it in 1600x900, that is my monitor standard resolution.

then you can go up to 1600x1200 @ 32bit, depending on your screen limits.

BF1942CF (Battlefield 1942 Compatibility Fix) is a Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit fix database (.sdb file) in an executable installer.

This sets only the individual compatibility fixes necessary to run BF1942 with FH in Vista and Win7 without invoking the complete OS compatibility mode. The full mode contains a long list of fixes that aren't required for BF1942 and cause unnecessary system restrictions.

The other useful feature of using a tailor made fix is that it is not seen by PunkBuster as Win98 compatibility mode, which was excluded by evenbalance and will cause kicks from PB enabled BF1942 (and FH) servers.

EmulateHeap - emulates the functionality of the Windows 9x heap manager
NoGhost - no window ghosting
Win98VersionLie - Hooks the GetVersion and GetVersionEx APIs so that they return Windows 98 version credentials
