    Your mom got you a 16:10 screen, and always berserk on blizzard for not including a 1680:1050 resolution option?
    Your daughter bought you a cool 21 inch display ( "You ain't doing anything than watching on this, dad, so here you go!" ), and you need to treat it like a 19'' 1280:1024 bastard?

    If so, you can now breath in deep and reliefed:
    Here is a way to change your resolution to whatever you want!
    In only 12 steps! All you need is a Windows XP/Vista, a mouse and a keyboard*!

    1) Go into the Windows Start-Menu, and click on "Execute..."

    2) In the appearing textline, enter "regedit"
    3) Expand the Tree in the Following order:
    - Software
    - Blizzard Entertainment
    - Warcraft III
    - Video

    4) Click on the Video folder
    5) Search for reswidth
    6) Doubleclick on it
    7) In the appearing Window, click on "Decimal" and then enter your preferred WIDTH in the textline

    8) Click "Ok"
    9) Search for resheight
    10) Doubleclick on it
    11) In the appearing Window, click on "Decimal" and then enter your preferred HEIGHT in the textline
    12) Click "Ok"
    ( 9 - 12 like 5 - 8 )

    Best regards, Davey

    *The keyboard is optional if you click, select and then copy/paste the digits from the following charset:

    My 20.5'' 16:10 is widescreen, yes. Luckily enough for you, Blizzard likes 4:3 - and thus gets you your wonderfull resolution for free.
    For the others, The tutors crafted this tutorial.
    All 5 of me.

    Well, while this does get the game to use the entire screen,
    it does not change the internal resolution to widescreen.
    I.e. everything looks slightly off.
    Ability buttons for example are not square anymore...

    - all bow infront of - the master - -

    That's a problem of widescreens in general. Even with a 4:3 resolution, everything looks slightly off - just that it looks uglier with a lowlevel resolution than with an actual 1680x1050.
