Widescreen resolution[edit]

Change settings in config.ini[1]

  2. Open config.ini.
  3. Change the Resolution line to the desired resolution (e.g. Resolution=1680x1050).
  4. Change the Aspect line to the desired aspect ratio (e.g. Aspect=16:10). For 21:9 use Aspect=default.

Notes

The aim cursor does not currently work in 21:9 Ultrawide resolution as the shot always occurs 5cm (about 2 inches) to the right as of 4/4/2017 - Patch version 4.10. The only known workaround at this time is to play at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Issues fixed[edit]

Unusually high CPU usage[edit]

Underclock processor speed[citation needed]
  1. Access Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings
  2. On you current power plan (or any other if you want) click "Change plan settings"
  3. Click "Change advanced power settings", a window will pop in
  4. Scroll down to "Processor energy management" and then open it
  5. Then you'll want to change "Minimum processor state" and "Maximum processor state" to 0% (this will limit your processor clock rate without causing any performance drops to the game)
  6. Click apply and then exit.

Notes

After you exit the game do not forget to change "Maximum processor state" back to 100%.
This fix won't lower the performance of the game if the clock rate is not too low.
This can be also done with processor management software

Poor performance or slowdowns[edit]

The mod below used for RE HD Remaster may help improve performance and fix stuttering. Especially at high resolutions
Apply frame rate fix[3]
  1. Download Resident Evil HD Remaster fps fix
  2. Copy d3d9.dll to the installation folder.
There is another mod (not compatible with the one above) that disables certain rendering features to improve performance on less-capable systems.
Apply Performance Boost mod[4]
  1. Download the mod from the linked thread.
  2. Copy d3d9.dll and varshare.dll to the installation folder.

Title screen with Biohazard text and audio[edit]

Despite the name "Biohazard" being intended only for Japan, several copies of this game have Biohazard text and announcer voice on the start screen. This mod substitutes relevant textures and audio files to fix this, for those who prefer the international name.
Apply title screen fix[5]
  1. Download the mod from the linked thread.
  2. Make a backup of the relevant game files if you wish
  3. Overwrite the original title screen texture and audio files with the ones from the mod

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/287290/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (287290) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
