Re: Help Man

The game was all fine, and when i exited it it was then that the screen has turned to its side.

I went into my control panel and changed the graphics card settings, it seems that the first time i played the game it changed on its own. now everything is all ok and fine.

Re: my computer screen/moniter has turned to its side and went bigger

older poorly written games would default certain moniters to 640x480 256colour......what a pain in the ass.
