Video[edit]

Widescreen resolution[edit]

The game can use either Direct3D or Glide. The Direct3D renderer provides more options and is the one necessary to use the patch for higher resolutions and widescreen support.
Custom resolution patch[citation needed]
Before applying the patch, make a backup of the Video_D3D.dll file in case the modifications go wrong.
  1. For Vista and later: make sure you have Turok 2 installed in a folder that can be modified by regular programs (e.g. C:\Games\Turok2)
  2. Download turok2fix.exe and run it.
  3. Replace 1024 and 768 in the fields with the resolution you want to use (note that for a high resolution, such as 2560x1440, you may need to use dgVoodoo 2.
  4. Press the "Patch Video_D3D.dll to apply custom resolution" button
  5. Using the dialog box that will appear, locate the Video_D3D.dll file in your Turok 2 installation
  6. In the game's launcher, use the Options menu option, then the Video menu option and from the Choose a Driver option select the driver that ends with (Direct3D).
  7. Press the Properties button and from the Resolution box select 1024x768. If you have Windows 8 or later make sure you also check 32 bit from Render depth.
