I was using the game, and I changed the resolution. My monitor goes blank - which is what it does if it doesnt support a resolution setting - and now I cant get back in the game to do this. In fact, I deleted the entire directory and cant find any reg settings for it, and when I re-unzip it does the same thing. Note, I just unzipped it to a folder and didn't go through any install process. What is going on? Is there ANY file in machines directory that have settings embedded? It was running fine at the default reso;ution before.
Resolution issues after changing

The resolution settings for Machines are stored in the registry at
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Acclaim Entertainment\Machines\Screen Resolution
in the "Width" and "Height" values.
If changing them doesn't help, try setting the "Lock Resolution" value to the opposite of whatever it's set to currently (0 if 1, 1 if 0) - should hopefully allow you to access the menu again.
That did it! I was not looking in the right place in the registry, it turns out. I was then able to return the game to a usable resolution. Funny thing, though - the "Lock Resolution" button doesn't stay unchecked...??? No problems now though. I was in the middle of a hot and heavy round of "Behind Enemy Lines" and restored my saves and now am able to resume hostilities. Thanks a million for the advice! And now there's a forum post people can refer back to in same situation. LOVE machines - LOVE this forum!!!
