Widescreen resolution[edit]

Widescreen resolution[citation needed]
  1. Lanch the game from <path-to-game>\launch.exe at least once.
  2. Open <path-to-game>\NickToonsRacing.cfg with a hex editor such as HxD.
  3. At position 0, replace the old values with one of these:
    • 1280x720 - 00 05 00 00 D0 02 00 00
    • 1366x768 - 56 05 00 00 00 03 00 00
    • 1600x900 - 40 06 00 00 84 03 00 00
    • 1920x1080 - 80 07 00 00 38 04 00 00
    • 2560x1440 - 00 0A 00 00 A0 05 00 00
    • 3840x2160 - 00 0F 00 00 70 08 00 00
    • If your resolution is not listed above, reference this page. The first four bytes are the width value and the last four are the height.
  4. Save the file when you are done.
  5. From now on, use <path-to-game>\toonsDX7.exe to launch the game.
Running <path-to-game>\launch.exe will mess up your custom resolution. Follow these steps again if that happens.
