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.

Description

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.

Unfortunately neither this version nor the Disc version of the resolution patch works on the GOG.com version of Direct Action just released the other day, it just gives an error message and the game refuses to launch. I don't suppose there's a chance of a GOG version of the resolution being made?

A fixed version of the GOG EXE has been uploaded currently awaiting approval.

For the time being you can head over to gog.com/forum/act_of_war_gold_edition/ widescreen_169_for_direct_action/ (remove the space, ModDB thought the link contain "words commonly associated with spam") where a dropbox download is available.
