Game Crashes When In Full Screen
« on: March 06, 2020, 02:55:58 AM »
Windows 10
Intel i7-4790
GeForce GTX1060 6GB
Outpost 2 Version 1.3.0.7
I'm just clicking the enlarge button on the windowed box. I'm not sure if there is a setting that I'm not seeing.

Edit: Figured it out. I had my display settings on my computer, not in game settings, set to too high. lowered it and it works great!

Glad to here. I was going to ask what your display was set to. It would be nice if we could fix the high resolution bug.

What is your screen resolution?

they might be running in 4k with 150% scaling, I know it crashs for me when trying to go full screen in this mode. I've tried disabling scaling and the .ini file shows the desktop correct size after I've removed scaling. however even after rebooting the screen will never max with our crashing. I'm guessing the game it's self just can't handle a screen of that size

Yeah, the game isn't capable of handling 4k resolution.

Perhaps someday we'll work on a patch for it. I've now got a 4k monitor, so I can potentially reproduce the bug now. Been kind of busy with refactoring work for OPHD though, so haven't had time to look into it yet.

Looking at an old post it looks like it crashes above or at 1440, I also noticed the game doesn't really handle screen scaling very well so take that in to account when trying to mess with screen sizes. So I'm running my 4k monitor at 150% scaling the game thinks my computer screen is 2560x1440. So if I setup the .ini file screen to 2432x1368 the game will start and play but if I move the map at all the game will crash. It doesn't matter if the map is large enough to handle the screen or not moving the map with the mini map or scrolling it crashes. 2176x1224 will work but if you scroll too fast the game crashes, 2048x1152 seems to be the most stable but I haven't played it more than an hour to really test it hard. Hopes this helps.



That being said I did some testing and I found some resolutions that did work. If you have a monitor that is higher than 1080P the following resolutions work.

2048x1152      Yes
2176x1224      Yes
2432x1368      Yes
2560x1440      No

These are my current settings that work fine. This resolution works in a window, but will not work if you change the MAXIMIZED=0 setting to a 1 to try full screen:

[GAME_WINDOW]
MAXIMIZED=0
H_SIZE=2432
V_SIZE=1368

Thank you for the summary. That's helpful information.
