Custom Screen Resolution

The game resolution can be changed by setting the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\
Blue Byte\The Settlers - Heritage of Kings\Development\DefaultResolution
to either select, window, or a fixed resolution, like 1920x1080.

If you want to use a fixed widescreen resolution, you need to run you game in development mode, otherwise the game will cut the viewport back to a 4:3 resolution. For example: 1920x1080 --> 1440x1080

For a 64Bit system the key is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Blue Byte\
The Settlers - Heritage of Kings\Development\DefaultResolution


Simple version: just download and run the files on the right.

Development Mode

The developers included a development mode in the game. Not all uses have been found, but it enables the use of fixed widescreen resolutions. It should also allow the use of NVIDIA PerfHUD, but since this only works with nVidia graphic cards, I couldn't test it.

The mode is only activated if the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\
Blue Byte\The Settlers - Heritage of Kings\Development\DevelopmentMachine
is set to a special number caluclated from the computer name. The tool on the right will generate this number.
