Fix-It-Felix in 240p
« on: July 17, 2021, 06:34:16 pm »
Hey guys,
I'm trying to run Fix it Felix in 240p. My desktop resolution is 640x480i and since it's a Windows game it uses this resolution. How can I force 240p before the game starts? Can I set/unset 240p from command line?

Figured it out  :applaud:

I used dc2.exe

Just in case anyone will ever be on the same quest here are the steps (Vertical monitor only):

1. Download dc2 https://12noon.com/?page_id=641 and extract to Fix it Felix dir.
2. Download Fixed it Felix Wrapper http://dragonking.arcadecontrols.com/static.php?page=AboutIFIFJ
3. Settings for Fix it Felix attached (only thing you really need to change is zoom level to 50% and orientation to display on vertical monitor)
4. Create bat (FixitRes.bat) with following settings:
Code: [Select]
start /wait dc2.exe -configure="fixit.xml" -temporary
start /wait FIFJ.exe
dc2.exe -restore
5. Go to  cmd, change to directory with Fix it Felix and dc2
Execute
Code: [Select]
dc2 -create="fixit.xml" -active
6. Edit fixit.xml and only change the following parameters:
Code: [Select]
        <size width="320" height="240"/>
        <refresh numerator="0" denominator="0"/>
        <scanlineorder value="Unspecified"/>
7. NOTE This does not work with super resolutions so make sure you have 320x240 supported
8. Launch FixitRes.bat. When you close the program it will return to your desktop resolution
