Here’s a quick guide on how to set a custom resolution. For example, when your resolution is stuck on 800x600, you can change this by following these instructions.

There are two options on how to change the resolution:

Create a custom resolution
1. Open your Nvidia control panel with a simple right-click on the desktop
2. Section "View", click "Change Resolution" and then the "Customise" button.

  1. Here you can select the resolution of your screen. Some of the settings are:
  • 1024x768
  • 1920x1080
  • 2048x1080 (2K)
  • 3840x2160 (UHD)

  • It's far from perfect it has a slight delay but that I could get used to but the poor visuals kill it for me I have at least ~40 mb up/down and the screen is this smoothen out grainy mesh. It's playable but for what internals you are getting I wished for it more. That's one of the killers for me.
