I always thought you could but I guess not. There is a way to change it. You have to edit a text file. Here is how to do it:

1. Open up your Rappelz folder. "C:\Program Files\GALA-NET\Rappelz" by default.

2. Open up the OPT file "rappelz_v1" in notepad.

3. The first two options are you resolution settings. Change the first one "1280" and the second one to "1024". It will look like:

GRAPHIC_RESOLUTION_WIDTH=1280
GRAPHIC_RESOLUTION_HEIGHT=1024

4. It will ask you if you wish to change it on exit. Just accept and start the game.

This could make the interface mess up. If it does you can just delete the folder and the game will make a new one the next time you start it. If there are any questions just ask. The game doesn't suck because you can't play at 1280x1024. That's a pretty ignorant thing to say. If your looking for near perfection pay for your games.
