Graphics feature State Notes
Widescreen resolution
Menus and loading screens are 4:3, and are centered.
4K Ultra HD
The game supports 2160p, but for resolutions higher than 1080p, you must first start the game in 1080p or lower and run it as an administrator, change to 2160p under settings before playing, and then change back to 2160p before quitting. Use 100% scaling at all times. Otherwise, the game crashes after the intro videos. If you alt-tab from the game, you will not be able to alt-tab back unless you change your PC's display settings to 2160p to match your current resolution while the game is running. The readme notes that it does not support alt-tabbing and that if you alt-tab, you won't be able to get back, but it seems to work fine other than the noted issue.

Issues fixed

Crashes when selecting resolutions above 1280x960

Upon selecting a resolution above 1280x960 and re-launching the game, it will crash during the loading screen right before the title screen.
Use Patched Executable

Download this patched executable and replace the original Shrek.exe in <path-to-game> to fix the crashing issue. Editing the config.ini and setting the resolution manually may be necessary to change the resolution afterwards.
