Widescreen support[edit]

The game natively supports only 2 widescreen resolutions: 1280x720 and 1600x900. To use any other resolution, you have to open the game's configuration file, then search for the lines NU_PCRESW and NU_PCRESH. Change the number next to NU_PCRESW to the desired horizontal resolution (e.g. 1920) and NU_PCRESH to the desired vertical resolution (e.g. 1080). Then run the game and in the options menu, change the option that says Widescreen to On to expand the FOV.
