Can't even launch the game - unsupport resolution



  • Just installed the game and I get nothing but a black screen upon launch while I can hear the audio. My monitor is giving me the message that the resolution is unsupported. I tried going to launch options and setting -w 1280 -h 720 to force it to my usual native, but it did not work. There is nothing more satisfying then just handing over your money for a new game and not even being able to launch it.


  • Developer

    -ResX=1280 -ResY=720

    The engine shouldn’t auto-select a resolution unless your system is reporting it as valid for some reason.



  • Thanks. I went into the config file and edited it there. It was some ultra high res at 2000+ width pixels that my GFX card can support but my monitor can’t.



  • hey can you tell me how you did this as i am having same problem

    Go to Documents/My Games/Chivalry/UDKgame/Config/UDKSystemSettings.ini. Open it up in notepad and edit “ResX” and “ResY” to a resolution you know works.
