(2006 version) - Resolution Fix
by Tore Andersen
The original Prey from 2006, developed by Human Head Studios
/ 3D Realms and released by 2K Games. For unknown reasons, the game doesn't
support the 1080p resolution. This is very strange, as the game engine, iD Tech
4 aka. Doom 3 engine, is fully capable. The game only supports 4:3 and 16:10
aspect ratio. The 16:9 menu is there, but has no function. The developers must
have overlooked this by mistake, but it is easily fixed.
1: Open the Prey game folder and open the "base"
2: Open "preyconfig.cfg" with a notepad, and find the following two lines:
3: Change the values to any resolution that match your monitor (including resolutions that are not available from the in-game settings menu)
4: Find the following line:
5: Change the value to match your monitor if needed
6: Save and close the file.
That's it. Prey will now run in the set resolution, including 1080p. ...As it should.
