I use windowed mode resolution 1920 x 1080. Perhaps you could show us a screen shot of what you have.

When you install beta patches it creates a new shortcut, or even worse over writes your current shortcut with a link pointing to the beta executable, which is located in a beta sub folder. The beta executable IS the one you want to use in order to get the benefits of the beta upgrade.

The best solution is to move or copy the beta executable to the main game folder over writing the original game executable and adjust the path in the short cut.

This is pretty much indecipherable. Please explain what is meant by


  • "game video"
  • "is bad"
  • "type"
  • "really weak"

Posting graphics and links is restricted until the OP has enough posts. It used to be a mere ten posts, but recently (perhaps with the Matrix server upgrades?) some users say it is a higher number like 25 or 50.

An e-mail with the pics could be sent to a forumite to post on the OP's behalf. Arrangements by PM of course.
