High Resolution Scaling?


Recommended Posts


I'm curious if there is any way to scale up the game similarly to HD patch for HOMM3? Playing in 3840x2160 on 27" monitor is quite unpleasant - everything is too small. I can drop resolution to 2k, but then it becomes blurry.  In Heroes 3 there was an option to upscale the game while still using 4k resolution.

Yeah you can do that. I assume you're trying to play on CnCNet, right?


  1. Go to your game folder, open the "INI" folder and then open "cnc-ddraw.ini" in notepad.
  2. Set "width=3840" and "height=2160" and save the file.
  3. Start the CnCNet client.
  4. Click "Options"
  5. Select "Display" and under the render options, select "cnc-ddraw (d3d9)"
  6. Set your in-game resolution to "1920x1080"
  7. Click Save.
  8. Play a skirmish game via the CnCNet client and test if it worked (Note: the gameplay will be fullscreen, but the options menu is not, that's normal...)

same problem for me


I am on a 1920x1080 resulution on my monitor.


But the buildingmenu is to small on the right side, I wont to try 1280x 720 or something like that. 


But I want to play 720 in FULLSCREEN


What I have to do?


I get with 720 only a window on my desktop.
