PREY (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 of Height/Width to the resolution of your monitor. (For 4K use: 3840x2160)
4: Change the value of r_mode to "-1", as shown in the image
5: Save and close the file.
Prey will now run in any HD resolution, as it should.
Prey, released in 2006, is a first-person shooter game
developed by Human Head Studios and published by 2K Games. The game is set on a
alien spaceship called the Sphere, where the main character, Tommy, must fight
to save himself and his loved ones from the hostile alien force that has taken
over the ship.
One of the unique features of Prey is its use of gravity manipulation, allowing players to walk on walls and ceilings and adding a new level of exploration and strategy to the gameplay. The game also features various alien abilities that can be acquired and used throughout the game, such as the ability to phase through walls or to control other beings.
The story of Prey follows Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic, who is abducted along with his girlfriend and grandfather by the aliens. As the player, you control Tommy as he fights to escape the Sphere and save his loved ones, uncovering the truth about the alien's purpose and his own connection to the Sphere. The game features a strong Native American influence, with Tommy's Cherokee heritage playing a significant role in the story and adding a unique cultural perspective to the game.
In terms of graphics, Prey was ahead of its time with its use of advanced lighting and textures. The Sphere, the game's main setting, is a massive and intricately designed alien structure that is both beautiful and terrifying to explore. The game's enemy designs are also noteworthy, with a wide variety of alien creatures that are both visually striking and challenging to defeat.
Prey was developed by Human Head Studios, a small independent studio based in Wisconsin. The game was in development for several years before its release, with the studio working to perfect the game's gravity manipulation and alien abilities mechanics. Despite the game's positive reception, the development studio went through financial difficulties and the franchise was eventually sold to other companies.
In conclusion, Prey is a first-person shooter game that stands out for its unique gameplay mechanics and strong story. Its use of gravity manipulation and alien abilities add a new level of exploration and strategy to the game, while its story, which is heavily influenced by Native American culture, adds a unique cultural perspective. The game's graphics were also ahead of its time, with advanced lighting and textures that bring the alien setting to life. Despite the game's positive reception, the development studio went through financial difficulties and the franchise was eventually sold to other companies. The game is a must play for fans of first-person shooter and science fiction games.
