a) Battlefield 2

Note: To play Battlefield 2 in widescreen format, you always need to run this game using changed shortcut. If you are using Autostart function widescreen is disabled.

Therefore go to C;/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Monolith Production/FEAR. Open file "settings.cfg" with Notepad. Change screenwidth on 1440 and screenheight on 900. Save this file and it's done.
