Saints Row 2: Resolution Editor

UPDATE: This editor should no longer be necessary as of Patch #2 (released 02/17/2009) which adds support for detection of 16:9/16:10 resolutions.

Since the game does not properly detect 16:9 and 16:10 resolutions, I’ve made an editor which can edit settings.dat for the resolution you specify.

The game appears to operate just fine with resolutions such as 1440×900 and 1680×1050.

Saints Row 2 Resolution Editor

Requires .NET 2.0.

    Patch 2 doesn’t fix it. I’m trying to run the game in 1366×768 (maximum) but I can’t find it in the options, although the game shows resolutions up to 2048×1280.

    Anyway the tool doesn’t work ether, the graphics and resolution reset as soon as I start the game with the new resolution.

    Hey all! Playing 16.01.2022 right now, and I downloaded the file for the resolution fix.
    I put this file into the first Saints Row folder in the steamapps and started it.

    You’re then being asked to put in the resolution. I put in 2560×1440 and then I started the game normally from the Steam shortcut. Everything seems to work nice.

    Just bumping this so people know it still works!
