Override resolution limit[edit]

Use dgVoodoo 2 to override rendering resolution
Edit resolution limit for Direct3D render
  1. Open <path-to-game>\StuntGP_D3D.exe in a hex editor (e.g. HxD).
  2. Search for the 00 08 00 00 7F 24 8B 45 F4 3D C8 00 00 00 7C 1A 3D 00 08 hex value.
  3. Replace both instances of 00 08 (2048) with FF FF.
  4. Save the changes.
  5. Download LegacyD3DResolutionHack and copy it to <path-to-game>.
Higher resolutions makes menu text skewed and hard to read. Therefore, using dgVoodoo 2 is preferable if you have a D3D11 capable GPU.

Widescreen resolution[edit]

Use a hack and edit aspect ratio
  1. Open <path-to-game>\GAME.CFG with a text editor.
  2. Find the line: DISPLAYRESWIDTH = and replace its value with your screen width.
  3. Find the line: DISPLAYRESHEIGHT = and replace its value with your screen height.
  4. Download the widescreen fix and place it in <path-to-game>.
  5. Run it as administrator, type in resolution values and click Write to a file.

Fix screen issues[edit]

Inject a module to fix aspect ratio without stretching UI and override resolution limit
  1. Open <path-to-game>\GAME.CFG with a text editor.
  2. Find the line: DISPLAYRESWIDTH = and replace its value with your screen width.
  3. Find the line: DISPLAYRESHEIGHT = and replace its value with your screen height.
  4. Download the StuntKit loader, skScreen.dll and place them in <path-to-game>.
  5. If you want to run the game at resolution bigger than 2048px, also download LegacyD3DResolutionHack and copy it to <path-to-game>.
  6. Run StuntKit_D3D.exe or StuntKit_Glide.exe, depending on API you want

Issues fixed[edit]

Lower graphics quality on Radeons[edit]

Game blacklists all graphics cards with radeon in name, quietly blocking highest quality settings.

Editing StuntGP_D3D.exe
  1. Go to <path-to-game>.
  2. Open StuntGP_D3D.exe with a hex editor such as HxD.
  3. Using the Find function (Ctrl+F), search for the text string radeon. There will be exactly one entry.
  4. Replace the text with blklst (or any other text that is the same length as the original and is NOT a part of known GPU name, like Nvidia, GeForce, AMD or Vega)
  5. Save the file.
  6. Launch the game.

Extremely fast screen speed[edit]

At refresh rates greater than 60 Hz, Screen speed increases as the speedometer increases, rendering the game unplayable.
Disable AMD Freesync and reduce screen refresh Rate to 60Hz[citation needed]
  1. Open ATI Radeon Settings
  2. Settings> Display> AMD FreeSync> Disable
  3. Control Panel> Display settings> Advanced display settings> Refresh rate>60.000Hz
  4. Launch the game.

Notes:

This may affect Nvidia users as well.
