Just updated to patch 0.6.5 and when I launched for the first time the resolution was set to 1024x768 and 16:10 instead of my previous 1680x1050 and 16:10.

Windows 7 - 64bit
Nvidia 460 1gb with latest drivers
22" 1680x1050 monitor.

Now I cannot set anything (in the 16XX x XXX range) but 1600x900, 1600x1024 and 1600x 1200.  Changing the wide-screen mode to 16:10, 16:9 or 4:3 does absolutely nothing.  No extra resolutions and applying or restarting WoT doesn't fix it.

I attempted to input it into the preferences.xml by setting aspect ratio to 1.6 and the Fullscreen items to 1680x1050 but either it defaults back to 1024x768 or ignores it and still loads in 1024x768 (both have happened).  I then attempted to make the file read only after making changes to see if that would keep it from defaulting back but it didn't work out.  After that I tried deleting the preferences.xml in hopes that would help but alas still nothing.

Besides reinstalling the whole thing (which would use up 2gb of my limited internet connection) does anyone have any ideas?

Images attached so you know I'm not crazy... well at least when it comes to this.

*EDIT* ..whoops shoulda posted in graphic issues.

You can run in window mode.
I run that way, smaller than actual desktop by a little. That way I can do other things with WoT running.

I think you do take a hit on performance when you do that but I don't notice any.

I would but prefer it in fullscreen.  I'm sure window will work until someone comes up with a fix.  At least that way I can feed my addiction.
