Tron Evolution - Screen Resolution issues etc?

I have put this info together a bit more clearly HERE on the PC Gaming Wiki.

-----------------

And obviously I know it's not a Steam game, that's why this is in Off Topic

I'm having some issues. The game runs okay, but I can't get the resolution up to 1920x1080 or 1920x1200. The in-game screen only lets me pick somewhere around 1600xwhatever, which looks like crap scaled up.

It is an Unreal Engine 3 game, but so far I can't seem to find anywhere in the config files that makes a difference. The anti-aliasing needs cranked up, too, but I could probably force that with ATI Tray Tools or something. Overall they give you very little in terms of in-game tweakable options.

Any ideas? At this point the game looks worse than my friend's PS3 copy, which is just unacceptable!

Okay, I am figuring some of this out on my own.

The file you need is in here:

C:\Users\username\Documents\Disney Interactive Studios\Tron Evolution\UnrealEngine3\GridGame\Config

GridEngine.ini is what you need to modify.

search for
ResX=
ResY=

(they will = the current value)

Then plug in the values you want there, ie

ResX=1920
ResY=1080


What was throwing me is that using 1200 for Y will NOT work. I'm not sure why, as some of the default lower resolutions are 16:10, but that's all I know for now.

Although it's visually obvious, I used FRAPS to take screenshots and verify the resolution.

I'll update this topic with anything else I find out; others please feel free to do the same until some proper tweak guide gets produced!

There is NO framerate cap like War for Cybertron etc. I took my screenshots with FRAPS, the framerate is displayed in the lower right hand corner- 60

1920x1080 at 60fps

I am tweaking other settings, trying to improve the graphics one way or another. The game looks okay, but it barely scratches what a PC can do visually- I'm getting a solid fps, and I just have an HD5750 and Athlon II x4 630. Hoping to find a way to make the reflections look flawless instead of all blurry...

Skipping Intro Logos & Movies:

In GridEngine.ini, just put a semi-colon ; before each movie that you want to skip:

;StartupMovies=Unreal
;StartupMovies=GamestarLogo
;StartupMovies=PropagandaLogo
;StartupMovies=DisneyLogo
;StartupMovies=Sc1_01_01

Those are all the movies that occur before the title screen.

Other Issues:

Cannot properly enable Direct-X 10:
setting AllowD3D10=True causes bugs. The in-game menus/hud are not visible. Performance seems poor as well.

64-Bit Support Not Available
The box lists the game as "enhanced for 64-bit," but it runs as a 32-bit application.

(I only list these as "issues" because the game's box specifically states that it is "Enhanced for" Direct-X 10 and 64-Bit)

Doing this (changing resolution to 1920x1080) also improved framerate for me. I was having terrible framerate in the game and absolutely should not be with my hardware.
Now it's just fine - thanks for the advice.
Why this isn't an option in-game is beyond me.

It's a fine game, it is, but suffers all the troubles of a cruddy port from Xbox.

Did this game only come out on PC in North America? I've been trying to find a copy but it seems impossible to attain in the UK.

I have also had this issue. The tips here helped me, but now the targeting arrow is offset by quite a bit.

Check out http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=101813991 for an example of this
