VP Modpack Screen Resolution issue
« on: July 12, 2019, 09:52:39 PM »

Hello,
I've recently gotten a new computer and have had to reinstall VP modpack for my Il-2 1946. On my old computer, with the modpack enabled,  I had a thin black border around the edges of the screen. I knew the resolution wasn't right but it didn't bother me much. However on my new one, an Acer Nitro 5, the black border is huge and I went to the conf file to resolve the issue, as Steven 197106's youtube tutorial directed. I entered the correct screen resolution, 1920 x 1080 in, and I'm given a fullscreen Il-2 that's much too zoomed in.

Here's the conf file entries;
il2]
title=Il2-Sturmovik 1946
hotkeys=HotKey game

[window]
width=1920
height=1080
ColourBits=32
DepthBits=24
StencilBits=8
ChangeScreenRes=1
FullScreen=1
DrawIfNotFocused=0
EnableResize=0
EnableClose=1
SaveAspect=0
Use3Renders=0
WideScreenFoV=1
UIColor=0
UIDetail=0
UIBackground=rnd

If anyone's encountered this issue before, any suggestions would be much appreciated!

1920x1080 should be perfect for you Nitro 5.
I'd generally recommend to change "ChangeScreenRes" to "0" as this setting was mostly useful for old CRT monitors only.
What happens usually on modern gaming laptops is that Windows 10 sets the display scaling to something else but 100% because the screen resolution is high but the screen size is comparably small, resulting in a high DPI value making it hard to read text because it would be rendered pretty small at 100% scaling.
Old games like IL-2 1946 aren't aware of this and will be "zoomed in" together with the desktop.
In order to avoid that, you can either reset your scaling to 100% (probably not what you want to) or explicitely disable the scaling for IL-2, see:
