Subject description: Beleive it or not, XWIS actually cares about the resolution

Long story short: I primarily use XWIS' multiplayer/skirmish-only components (or the RA2YR version that doesn't include campaign maps and movies) because it's faster (start-up loading only) and actually runs on that blasted Win10. (skip to the last paragraph for the actual problem)

But I ran into a problem a while ago while making Supremacy: Whenever I play on 640x480x16, the campaigns load up just fine.
However, once I change the resolution to 1072x576x16, the game "encounters a critical error and needs to close. We apologize for the inconvenience. Do you wish to send an error report to MicroBrains' SlaveHouse?" (LULZ!)

I theorized it was because proper loading screens were missing. However, extracting load.mix from the RA2 I have from way back and actually chking the one in XWIS' ra2.mix, proved that to be false. XWIS will always crash on 1072x576.
A quick swap of EXEs proved it.(XWIS crashes on higher res, old EXE works at high res)

Does anyone know why XWIS always crashes on mission loading-screens when playing at resolutions higher than 640x480?
It's kinda annoying to test and debug maps on low resolutions. Especially when I'm still using my HP Mini right now.

If you change the resolution in game, does it work? Might just be locked since it's a really stripped down client, and not really the full game.

It doesn't matter HOW the res is changed, is just matters that it DOES, and isn't 640x480. Then crash.

What's funny is that replacing GAME.exe with the one I still have (bought a pirated copy years ago) makes the loading screen show up on all resolutions just fine.
