I tried to find a way in 2009, but gave up. Doing a search now, I found that there was a patch/mod in this post:
http://strike-team.net/forums/index.php/topic/160749-windows-7-%E2%80%93-red-alert-2yuri%E2%80%99s-revenge-resolution-patch/

But the download has apparently been disabled.

So what do I do now?

Thank you, but it.. doesn't work.

When I select a resolution in the options screen, it doesn't change it. It just.. does nothing.

EDIT: I found that it DOES display the correct resolution when starting a game, then sticks to it even when leaving it.

But.. how high a resolution could I set? I'm not home, but I haven't been able to set a resolution above 1280x800 on my laptop.

I need at least 2560x1600, preferably 4960x1600 or 8043x1600 optimally.

Your laptop doesn't support more than that then.

Quite demanding. The latter two don't even exist. But you're always free to get a $ 1,000 screen, or more of them, to make your dreams come true.

closest thing your gonna get to the 4960 x 1600 is 4096×3072
and i highly doubt your monitor even comes close to that
1920 x 1080 is about the perfect reso to me anyhigher and it gets hard to control your units.
unless you got a projector and a 10 ft screen then i would just stick with 1920 x 1080

the other reso 8043 x 1600 doesnt even exsist

No, yes, I understand. I'm talking about my home setup.

Are you guys kidding, or do you really not know monitors too well?

I have two setups. One with a single 30" and two 20" on either side, and one with three 30" monitors.

With rendering borders (which is the only way to get a clear image), the resolution of the latter setup is:
8042x1600. The former is 4960x1600.

I mean.. why would I ask for a resolution that my monitor can't support?
That doesn't make any sense.

I am okay with 2560x1600 as well, but I'm wondering if it's literally possible to set ANY resolution or is there a theoretical maximum?

A monitor refers to a single monitor, not to your entire display setup.
I don't know whether there's a maximum.

I don't care about the monitor - I care about the resolution.

Okay, so if I find that it won't work under 8043x1600.. then what?

i would venture to say that the resolution is based on the map size or something like that. say for instance i can see almost all of CS on yuri with my current reso, but if you actually set your reso higher than the actual size of the map it would prob go back to default.
this is merely opinion tho. also , why the hell would you even want a reso that is 8043 x 1600? you wouldnt even be able to see your units if it did work. i think in order for you to get this to work you will have to probly adjust the actual game file itself, or maybe make a patch for it.

the obvious answer is to make your own reso patch. dont ask me how because im a welder. you need to go to a computer geeks forum and ask how you would go about this.

well then how about go home to your 40 different monitors and then try it on the one that supports the 8000 resolution.

also you can go into ra2.ini and change the resolution in there. just click on ra2 ini and scroll down to where it says "video"
then erase the current setting and then type in one that your monitor supports. that is what i did but my monitor only supports up to 1920 x 1200. and that is good enuff for me, any smaller and i would have a hard time controlling units correctly, not sayin that i control them correctly now but... :p
alot of laptops dont support to high of a reso. i have a brand new samsung R580, and its loaded with the latest nvdia drivers and software and video card, and it also has an i5 processor , but it dont support but up to 1366x768
and it came out in march of this year.
just go home and try what i said about the ra2.ini file good luck

What resolution do you use?

but if you actually set your reso higher than the actual size of the map it would prob go back to default.
this is merely opinion tho.

i use 1920 x 1200
i had an older monitor on my old e-machine it would support higher. it was win xp tho.
you can also remove the number 12 pin from your computers monitor cable and this will make it not recognize any lcd monitor as plug and play, therefore it will not communicate with the monitor, or figure out what resos it does and doesnt support. after you remove the pin, you shold be able to go to dosplay properties and select a high reso if you have a screen bigger than like 21.5 inches.
it looked alot like the reso in your post ;)
