Anyone know how to get this resolution for this game?

If found this solution

Open up notepad and copy all the text below into it and save it as starWarsWidescreen.reg
Double click it and it will enable 1080p (1920:1080 with black bars). It will still play all the cutscenes at the default resolution.
The values we are changing are the "DefaultHeight"=dword:00000438
"DefaultWidth"=dword:00000780 in both the opengl and direct3d options. The values for width and height are stored as hexidecimel (438 hexi=1080 and 780 hexi=1920).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Star Wars Starfighter\1.0\Renderers]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Star Wars Starfighter\1.0\Renderers\Direct3D]
"description"="DirectX 8 Renderer"
"Windows 9x"="LECDirect3D, 12011"
"Windows NT 5"="LECDirect3D, 12011"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Star Wars Starfighter\1.0\Renderers\OpenGL]
"description"="OpenGL 1.2 Renderer"
"Windows 9x"="LECOpenGL, 12008"
"Windows NT 4"="LECOpenGL, 12008"
"Windows NT 5"="LECOpenGL, 12008"

But it's still 4:3 ratio need 16:9

I had the same problem. I already manually edited the registry files, but it's still running in 4:3... dunno what the problem could be :/

yeah rather sucks for my widescreen monitor

Yeah, that's the solution that I already tried, and it didn't change anything. I was wondering if there was something else that I had to do to get it to work? Right now it only works if I turn all scaling off on my GPU.

For me this doesn't work.
I set the resolution to 1600x900 (that's the max. that my monitor supports) and the game still run on 1024x768 : /

i think its not possible to play this game in better res i have search in every single star wars gamer fans faq nd theres nothing we can use its a shame
Configuration Options Select 1280 x1024 in options when the game first launches. it's the highest selection i can recall this game having and i have been playing it since not long affter it's first retail Release in 2002.

Just wanted to stop in & say this worked for me too! Thanks a bunch!

I think this is working, although I'm not 100% sure. I edited the registry to 1920x1080, which as others mentioned still leaves it in 4:3 resolution with black bars. After going into nvidia control panel and setting scaling to fullscreen, it appears to be normal. The 2 round HUD elements on either side of the screen are still circles, and not stretched in to ovals.

How can we get it to be 16:9? The rgistry tweaks work but its 4:3 with these huge black bars.
