Hi, thanks for the great patch! Have been using 1.42d for a while with great success. Thought I'd let you know that unfortunately, due to newer Windows 10 and/or latest Nvidia drivers that the patch does not scale the resolutions correctly anymore. When choosing a higher res setting, the image is enlarged and sometime as much as 2 thirds of the image is lost off the edge.
This only seems to have occurred recently. It has been working on the spec below so I can only assume it's an update that's caused it.

By higher res setting, do you mean native UHD 4K resolution (3840x2160)?
That certainly sounds like a driver bug, but could also be due to GPU overclocking. Overclocked hardware (especially RAM) can backslide and no longer be stable at the same clocks it was previously (but I've also heard of RTX 2080 Ti's dying prematurely). Try setting your hardware back to stock clocks first. If that doesn't help, then roll back to the previous driver that worked (You did manually download the drivers from nVidia and have them saved somewhere, right?). If rolling back the driver does fix it, then it's indeed a driver issue that needs to be reported to nVidia so that it can be fixed.
Unfortunately, I don't have a bleeding-edge GPU or 4K (or 2.5K) screen to do any actual testing/debugging with, so I can only make an educated guess.
I've also heard one case of newer nVidia drivers breaking my v3.24 Q2 patch at 2560x1440.
Edit: One other thing you could try is renaming the .exe from WolfSP.exe to something like WolfSP_142.exe. Video drivers contain many .exe filename-specific compatibility hacks that could potentially cause problems for higher than originally supported resolutions, and renaming the .exe would sidestep those.
Edit again: In addition, try disabling DPI or font scaling in Windows. RtCW isn't currently aware of this, and won't compensate for it.
