Widescreen resolution

Set widescreen resolution[7]
  1. Remove Settings.cfg from <path-to-game>\save\ if you have it.
  2. Edit pc.cfg in the installation folder and find the following strings:
  3. SetBkInt32		ASPECT_WIDTH				4
    SetBkInt32		ASPECT_HEIGHT				3
    
    SetBkInt32		MODE_WIDTH					1024
    SetBkInt32		MODE_HEIGHT					768
    
  4. Modify them to the desired resolution, e.g. for 1920x1080:
  5. SetBkInt32		ASPECT_WIDTH				16
    SetBkInt32		ASPECT_HEIGHT				9
    
    SetBkInt32		MODE_WIDTH					1920
    SetBkInt32		MODE_HEIGHT					1080
    
  6. After this modification, always start game directly from DTR2.exe in the installation folder, not from the game launcher.
