Act of War continues to genre of military strategy war games, but does it on a grand style. It's near future plot strikes close to home, placing the American public at the mercy of huge gas prices controled by an evil criminal organization. The United States has no choice except of course, to invade. The USA army is dispached, along with an elite military task force led by you. The game has a impressive graphics engine, and it appears with all the bells and whistles of a 2005 game. Going farther beyond most games however is the story. Revealed through both ingame events as well as live action movies the story and its accompanying game are sure to please fans of the real time strategy as well as traditional gamers.
NOTE: This file has been updated to version 1.06.3, which was recently pushed to Steam. This modified executable allows you to select any resolution your graphics adapter actually supports within the game, including full HD etc. The game interface works just fine with the modified resolutions. I have only tested this mod for the Steam version. To install, simply replace your old executable. Preferably you would create a backup before doing so. See Description for technical details.
Technical details: By default Act of War correctly detects all your resolutions, but filters them for resolutions which have an aspect ratio of 1.25 or 1.33. This filtering happens during UI-setup (after the strings for the menus have been allocated etc.).
The filtering code can be found by searching for the string TAOWSubOptionGraphicConfigurator_NotCreatedObject (Ascii). A few bytes after that, you will find the pattern 83C4F489542404DB442404894C2408DB. Replace the first three bytes by B001C3 (opcodes for 'mov al, 1; retn'). For the current steam version, all this can be found at 0x5AE3FC.
