    So i got a gtx470 a couple weeks ago and bought just cause 2 in the steam sale to try out some directx 11 goodness and i cant get the resolution of the game to go above 720p. desktop resolution is 1842x1036 which fits my tv.
    Tried changing the desktop to 1080p which overscans but that didn't unlock the option in game.

    can anyone help me?

    I would hazard a guess at it being because your TV is a TV, not a monitor, and is not running a standard resolution, and doesn't support standard resolutions.

    Might also be something to do with how the resolution handling is done in the game, maybe it only allows resolutions that the TV properly supports.


    Also, do PCs even do i resolutions?

    ^I was going to tell OP to try to add his res to the config file, as that's how you usually get silly uncommon resolutions like that working, but then i realised that he says he can't pick anything above 720p.

    Maybe the game sees that it's a TV and figures that TVs are either 720p or 1080p but since this doesn't go up to 1080p it just sticks with 720p.

    So in the end maybe manually messing with the config file might be it after all.
