Custom resolution[edit]

In fullscreen, the game ignores the use of resolutions other than your native resolution.
This presents performance problems for lower-end PCs and can make the game unplayable for PCs with multimonitor display configurations.
Set a custom borderless windowed resolution[4]
  1. Enable windowed mode in the game launcher, then launch the game as normal and close it.
  2. Use the following command line arguments: -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080 -popupwindow
Replace 1920 and 1080 with the desired width and height.

Notes

This method will not resize the window to fit the screen.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/606230/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (606230) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
