How can I manually set the resolution for Civilization 4

BY Permanently deleted user



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.

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