How would I add 960x720 to the resolution list for nGlide and Earth 2150?

Can I ask you why you want to use this resolution?

If your monitor native res is 1280x720 and you want to play in correct aspect ratio, open nGlide configurator from the Start menu and set Resolution="1280x720" + Aspect ratio="4:3". In setup.exe select Glide 0 and 640x480.

My TV only supports 1280x720 for 16:9 and 960x720 for 4:3. Other resolutions just black out.
Eaeth 2150 has a problem that causes it to crash while using 16:9 resolutions and aspect ratios, so I'm stuck with 960x720 as the only resolution that it will play with. Unfortunately, it is not a resolution listed by the game engine, nor is it listed with nGlide, so I was hoping to add it to the resolution so when I use setup.exe, I can just use said resolution and jump right into the game.

Have you tried Zeus's suggestion?
There is a big chance that it works because the game still thinks its putting out 640x480.

Then use "screen resolution"=1280x720 and "aspect ratio"=4:3 in the nGlide configurator.
And any 4:3 resolution in the game config (the only difference is the font/interface size).
You don't need 16:9 support in game (AFAIK, all glide modes are 4:3, except 1280x1024), the stretching and letterboxing will apply through nGlide.

yeah, forcing it into 4:3 with the setup program worked. Thanks.
