Fallout 2 In Huge Resolution
 
Fallout 2 In Huge Resolution [ Mod -> Article ]

More info on Game: Fallout 2: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game
jdoe407 has created a new modification for Fallout 2 which allows you to play the game in a wide variety of resolutions.  His mod also allows you to change the speed of world map travel.
This has been designed for the 1.02d us executable and I can't guarantee that it will run on anything else. There are still many bugs with fallout2 when running with a higher resolution.

The patcher is run in the same directory as Fallout2.exe. What it does is it takes the original executable, makes a copy of it and then applies a few patches to it depending on what information you give to it via the gui.

The slider bar in the "World Map" section determines how much you want to slow the world map down by. The higher the bar, the slower it will get. To enable or disable it, just simply check or uncheck the "Slow Down World Map" check box.
Playable resolutions range from 640x480 all the way to 1600x1200.  You can read more about it and check out a higher resolution screen here.
