How can I manually set the resolution for Civilization 4


To force the game to run at a set resolution follow the steps below:

To change the resolution to a custom resolution you need to edit the ini file for the game.

Browse to the installation directory (C:\program files\Firaxis games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4 by default)
Double click on the file named _Civ4Config
Browse through the file for the line:
     Screenheight = 0
     Screenwidth = 0

You need to change these values to the ones you wish and save the file.  For example, changing the settings to:
    Screenheight = 1024
    Screenwidth = 768

......Will force the game into 1024x 768 mode

If you wish to use the default settings, change both options back to 0.
