As some people make the choice to switch to widescreen monitors with their computers, relatively unusual resolutions such as 1440x900 and 1280x800 have been seeing wider use. There has been a push in recent software to build in greater flexibility to dynamically scale flight sim HUDs and layouts to the wide range of resolutions now available. A full list of supported and semi-compatible resolutions for the WC Saga project has been released. Although 640x480 and 1024x768 are what the game is being designed for, the Saga team expects to give players the option to resize their playing fields when the fan project is eventually released.
Here is the complete list of resolutions that are supported: 640x480, 800x600, 960x600, 1024x768, 1088x612, 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1280x960 & 1280x1024.
Only 640x480 and 1024x768 are official. The others are new settings from the SCP team and still have minor bugs.

Spanish Special Operations are Extra Special
After seeing the Spanish WC2 that Christian Klein recently acquired, the next natural question was whether DROSoft had also localized the Special Operations. The answer is yes, and it comes in an awesome double pack just like the Spanish Secret Missions! Both are in the same box with the game summaries translated side-by-side on the rear of the packaging.
