Hello -

This has been a question/topic of discussion almost as long as UO has been around. I know Razor can force the game window to a larger size and I see the option in AUO (but it is disabled). Is there any other way to do this without Razor? I remember in the past the ability to edit the UO.cfg file (Main and Character), but I don't believe that works anymore.

What is everyone else doing?

Steam does it You can change the windows size before you loggon to the server. Mines set to 1000x750. That seems to be the largest i can set it before I start seeing a large amount of black tiles.

Let me clarify this. You must be logged out of the game with razor open for the option to be enabled. Then the next time you log into the game it'll force the resolution size. Steam/Assist will let you modify the value in game but it won't take effect til you log out and back in.

Force the game size window

1. Close all clients
2. Open Razor and login to the character that I want to change the resolution for
3. Verify in Razor their profile is active
4. Verify the settings in UO are 800x600
5. Check the "Force Game Size" within Razor and set it to 924x700
6. Log out of UO
7. Log back into UO, no resolution changes
8. Uncheck "Force Game Size" within Razor
9. Check "Force Game Size" within Razor
10. Log out of UO
11. Completely close UO client
12. Launch Razor
13. Login to UO and select appropriate character, no resolution changes

How to adjust your resolution in Razor

Simply open your client's Razor. Select the 'More Options' tab.

Then, check the little box beside ''Force Game Size'' so that you can edit the resolution numbers.

You can now enter some higher numbers.

Finally, you will need to log out, and then back in to see how the adjustments worked out.

Note that you may have to try a few before you find the right setting.

***Please also note this may only work if you have the game play window size set to 800x600 in game. To check, while in game, click on your options tab on your paperdoll and then click the ''eye'' tab on the right hand side on your paperdoll.  You can select the game size window there also***

Also check out the Razor Documentation:

Once we have adjusted the resolution for the game... How do we get rid of the black box that surrounds our screens?  I'm used to it by now, but it would be nice to get rid of it and see more of the game displayed.

Force the window size by changing the number from 800x600 to 1024x 768 is most common, I actually stretched my screen to 1200x800 and fits nicely with room for spell icons, map, paperdoll and backback
