Fifa 2012: Full Screen, Resolution Issue


First of all. This is not an issue as the title says :). You just have to change the ‘Resolution Settings’.

You can find the config file in the following folder.

First head on to the folder where you installed Fifa 12.

1. Navigate to

Fifa 12 >> Game >> fifasetup

2. Click on fifaconfig 

A new window opens.

3. Click on Game Settings

Your resolution is probably set to 800 * 600. Change it to the resolution of your laptop screen. That would solve the problem. Usually 1280*720 will do.

You can also go for higher resolutions but that depends on your laptop screen resolution and processing power. More the resolution, more the processing power that will be needed.

Hope that solves the problem.



Backup your drivers

Ah finally there is a way to backup drivers.  I didn’t know this till now. This would save me a lot of trouble. Thank you Makeuseof! 🙂

True indeed that loading drivers is the worst nightmare for anyone without a proper driver cd that comes from the manufacturer. I’ve seen so many people with their laptops with poor graphics, bad audio and without the ability to use the wifi just because they wanted to reload windows.

Moving Window Buttons In Ubuntu

You can do this really easily. By using the gconf-editor.

You can do that by pressing Alt+F2 and then typing in gconf-editor. Click Run.

1. Browse through to apps/metacity/general

2. Double click on the button_layout

3. What you will see is

What this means is that you have the close button followed by the maximize button followed by the minimize button. The colon on the right side would signify that all your buttons are aligned towards the left. In order to move your buttons to the right you can play with this order of things.

For Example, I normally have the following settings, similar to windows.

Which is Minimize followed by maximize followed by the close button aligned to the right like so.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.
