View Full Version : Resolution Prob on chronicles of riddick
03-01-06, 02:36 AM
Hey guys i got a problem with 'the chronicles of riddick escape from butchers bay'. It will not let me change the resolution higher then 800x600 and this is with a 7800GTX. I have tried the latest nvidia driver which states it fixed this problem and I have also gone to evga website and downloaded their nvidia driver with no luck on either, any ideas? No way will i play this game at 800x600.:thumbdwn:
hmm, there is a patch for the game that corrects some things, have you tried that? you can get it here http://www.vugames.com/file_list.do?gamePlatformId=1839
Have you got the latest patch installed for Riddick which fixes a few problems with newer nVidia cards..........http://www.vugames.com/downloadfile.do?gamePlatformId=1839&mediaid=14480
Great game by the way.
Yep latest patch should fix it.

I just played it a month ago with my 7900 and had no issues running at 1280...

Thats cause this game is smooth as hell, never had any troubles with it once i patched it up.
I don't have to do this since it works fine for me but what about editing the config file and seeing if that works:
VID_MODE=1920 1200 32 60
The line is in the environment.cfg file.

Just updating an old thread.
I had this problem as well and as roverXE said, switching my monitor driver over to the default "Plug and Play" driver fixed it. :)
So, thanks rover. I can go all the way up to 2048x1536@85hz right in the game menus now. :)
I can run the game smoothly at that res in 2.0++ mode too. :D
