Crusaders: TKC Screen Resolution Issue

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Trying to play Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come and I'm having screen resolution issues. Strangely there doesn't seem to be any way to set the resolution in the game options, nor in any of the config files I can open and interpret.

Apparently it's supposed to automatically detect your current settings, which would be 1440x900 native for my monitor, but for whatever reason it's going for 1680x1050. As a result, I actually have to scroll across the game window by pushing the mouse to the edges of the screen. This happens during cutscenes, the main menu, and throughout gameplay itself, which effectively makes it unplayable.

So far I've tried constraining the resolution through the Steam launch commands, and also through the nVidia control panel scaling options, without success.

Is there any way I can fix this, either with my existing resources or via some third-party program?

NOTE: I've already checked out the relevant threads on the Steam forum, and contacted NeoCore directly, without success or response

UPDATE: Also tried using command-line prompts via a desktop link, with no success. Strangely, when I attempt to take a screenshot, the result shows the full screen, without being chopped off (although I can confirm that it's definitely running in 1680x1050).

Surely there has to be some easy remedy for this, NeoCore. A command line to slip into one of the config files, or simply a replacement config file for download?

This is really frustrating, because the game looks and plays great otherwise.

The direct launch works from my M$-Vista admin account but somehow did not for my user account.
You will need to go to right-click on the LionHeart executable, go to compatibility and tick "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Again, this worked for me.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I no longer has the game installed, so I can't try it out at the moment, but hopefully it'll work when I do.
