Screen resolution issue.

Postby Bastet » 05 Aug 2018, 20:16

Hello,

I'm not very techy so I apologise if this is a dumb issue. I have a 4K monitor with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. However, if I play above 800 x 600 the top two inches of the screen are chopped off. I've tried in full screen and windowed mode but it's the same. I tried taking screen shots but when I paste them they're entirely black. As an example, when you close the game, the 'thanks for playing' message is cut off the top of the screen.

I'm using Windows 10 Home 64bit, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, 32gb ram and a 4.0Ghz processor. The PC is coming up to its third birthday :P.

I tried disabling the scaling thing but it made no difference.

What resolution should I be using? Thanks, :)!

Try the master builds instead they are more stable then the current release 3.2.3

And more stable then 3.1 too.

goto artifacts section and you will find it if you are using windows.

if using linux ubuntu mint.

try this instead

sudo git clone https://github.com/Warzone2100/warzone2100.git

cd warzone2100

./configure

sudo make && make install

Note: you need to open up terminal if you are using linux

if using windows then click the link below and goto artifacts section for plain install or portable install

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Warzone ... nch/master

i added the linux guide for people who use linux like

ubuntu, fedora, arch, mint

also game works fine on 1080p.

I don't know how to fix your resolution but I use Windows10 and in order to get a screenshot at all I have to run the game in windowed mode and then hit the window key + the prt sc key.

The in-game screenshot key is F10. As a last resort, take a photo of your monitor.
