Screen resolution changer tool

A Modding Tool for Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005)

Hi everyone! So, here is a tool that can help you to set screen resolution to make game look like in widescreen. Yes, thats right, it stretches the screen the way that it makes game look like it runs in widescreen. And honestly, this is the option for me, because other widescreen mods makes this game drop FPS, which makes your game lag a lot. The only issue i has with this tool is, that you have to run it always when you are wanna launch this game. Because without this tool there will be no widescreen resolution. Anyway, i hope that you like this tool. Enjoy :)

How to install and use:
1. Download this tool.
2. Copy it in to your Need for Speed Most Wanted folder.
3. Launch nfswmres.exe file and set your resolution.
4. Select your version of the game 1.2 or 1.3.
5. Press on Launch to start the game in widescreen mode.

WARNING: If after you launched the game it crashes, then close the tool, go to your NFS Most Wanted folder, delete nfsmwres.ini file from the folder and start over again. If it crashes again, then do it again until it starts your game in widescreen mode. After that it should work fine. But if it doesn't, then i don't know how else i can help.
