Widescreen resolution[edit]

The game normally supports only 4:3 aspect ratio resolutions in the menu. But you can change the resolution of the game to the wider versions of the resolutions seen in the menu by editing the config.ini file. The resolution you will set should have the same height as the ones in the menu (768, 600 or 480).
Modify config.ini
  1. Launch the game at least once.
  2. Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Documents\Aspyr\The Shield\
  3. Open config.ini.
  4. Set SCREEN_WIDTH and SCREEN_HEIGHT to the desired resolution.
Do not change the Screen Mode option in the options menu as that setting is for monitors that stretch 4:3 images to 16:9 or 16:10 but running the game at the native resolution is better than stretching horizontally anyway.
