Display issues on RX580 - only 2/3rds of the display?

Hi everyone - longtime Unrealer here, since day 1.

I have Unreal loaded on my now-ancient i5 gen4 machine - it's my go-to when I just want a little gaming nostalgia; damn game just never gets old for me. Well, it used to be.

But, last year (or was it the year before) I upgraded my video card to an RX580, with FreeSync, which I have enabled for one or two other modern games I play.

When I launch Unreal, though my display just shows the bottom-left two thirds of the game - I can't see the menu bar. I put on the Vsync so it doesn't run a million miles an hour, but I can't seem to change the display. I've tried setting my card's display to 19x10, that did nothing, and I'll concede I don't understand all the driver controls (I'm an old guy and don't play PC games much anymore...)

And sorry, I don't know which patch I'm on. I did install a texture patch years ago.

If this is a known issue, sorry. Will the latest 227 patch address this?

Looks like you have unreal gold from your ini

you can try installing OMP v0.2 (I can't seem to find working links to 0.99 OMP...) https://www.oldunreal.com/specialpatches.html

or try 227. but note that if you install 227 your old saves won't work.

This is what my fullscreen looks like:



I don't really care about my old saves, I can always restart.

This looks like a DPI scaling issue, unreal absolutely does not support it. You can either set it to 100% in windows, or alter the setting specifically for unreal.exe -- there's a bunch of guides that differ depending on your OS. google "disable high dpi scaling" with your OS and you should be able to find it

I disabled in the exe, and that worked.

You're a god amongst mortal men.  Thanks bud.
