Dark and Darker Playtest Custom Display Resolution

We prefer to use 2:1 aspect ratio to record my content. So we decided to do some digging to see if we could replace the screen resolution with a custom resolution.




Settings to change:

ResolutionSizeX=2560 ResolutionSizeY=1280 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=2560 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1280 

Adjust to fit your aspect ratio:


Instructions – Dark and Darker Playtest Custom Display Resolution

Make sure you have a non-destructive text editing app installed.
*Something like: VSCode, Atom or Notepad++

Open file explorer and put this into path input:


Copy GameUserSettings.ini to any dir on your computer for backup purposes.

Open the original file using your text editor.

Set your preferred resolution by changing the following values:

  • ResolutionSizeX=2560
  • ResolutionSizeY=1280
  • LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=2560
  • LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1280

Now, if your new resolution does not match the aspect ratio you were using change these settings accordingly:

  • DesiredScreenWidth=1280
  • DesiredScreenHeight=640
  • LastUserConfirmedDesiredScreenWidth=1280
  • LastUserConfirmedDesiredScreenHeight=640


I changed ResolutionSizeY & LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY from 1440 to 1280.
So, I had to change DesiredScreenHeight & LastUserConfirmedDesiredScreenHeight from 720 to 640 to match the 2:1 aspect ratio.

Without these changes, the game was overwriting my 1280 value.
