What resolution do you have each set to and what are the requirements of the game.

You probably just need to adjust the tft resolution.

as you know tft monitors run at a resolution that is compatable with them // not like a crt ..and will not change to the lower resolutions /needed on some older games ,,

This is only about 12months old is it not,what tft do you have.
Check your display settings and see how low the monitor can go down to I have an Iiyama E431S 17" which can go down to 800x600

bremner: the resolution is set to 1024x768 in the config and in windows

monitor and Rayuk:

the game is not an old one , it came out a week or 2 ago i think , the film is just coming out at the cinema.

i have a 17" proview tft monitor and it can go down to 800x600 , i can play games that are as old as the hills or games such as half life 2 which are brand new.

the game works no problem at any resolution on the 15" 300 year old crt but not at all at any resolution on my tft
