Downsampling / DSR resolutions not applied
- The game allows picking resolutions enabled via DSR, but only actually applies up to the desktop resolution, in both windowed fullscreen & exclusive modes.
- This can be worked around by changing the desktop resolution to the DSR resolution before launching, after that DSR options should apply properly in-game, though desktop resolution will need to be changed each time you want to launch it.

- Even though the developers mentioned that the game would include FSR 2, it clearly only includes FSR 1 as it has the typical FSR 1 artifact of spatial upscaling, no temporal artifacts. Other users were also suggesting this. Game also includes DLSS 3.1.1 Super Resolution DLL.

- Using DLSS with dev overlay shows the resolution actually being rendered by the game, selecting any DSR resolution always kept it at desktop res, despite windowed mode setting & any DPI changes applied to EXE.
