Resolutions

From The DarkMod Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Dark Mod supports a wide list of resolutions settable via the menu, as well as some odd resolutions you might want to use.


Note: Windows 7 and newer have DPI scaling technologies which are known to interfere with OpenGL resolution management.
See Graphics and Drivers for further details.


How to set custom resolutions

If the choices in the menu are not enough, then you can set any resolution via the Darkmod.cfg file, too. Use the following:

seta r_customHeight "Y"
seta r_customWidth "X"
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta r_mode "-1"
seta r_aspectRatio "R"

where Y = height in pixel, X = width in pixel, and R can be one of the following:

Value Name Remarks
0 4:3 Default from D3
1 16:9 Widescreen
2 16:10 Widescreen
3 5:4 TDM v1.06
4 16:9 TV TDM v1.06, special modes for TV screens


r_fovRatio

From v1.06 onwards you can also set a custom aspect ratios,
simply set r_fovRatio to a value > 0,
and r_aspectRatio will be ignored,
and the aspect ratio will be r_fovRatio : 1.
The following for instance sets up the resolution 3120 x 1050 with a ratio of 2.97 : 1:

seta r_customHeight "1050"
seta r_customWidth "3120"
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta r_mode "-1"
seta r_aspectRatio "0"      // ignored
seta r_fovRatio "2.971"
Note: The menu and any other GUI will still cover the entire screen and thus be stretched to whatever dimensions your display has.

List of resolutions

This table lists only some of the possible non-standard resolutions, entries in red are not accessible via the menu (see above on how to use them):
