Burnout Paradise: Remastered resolution makes the game window WAY too big.

★★★★ Novice

When choosing a resolution (3840x2160) the window becomes so large that only a quarter of it shows on screen. It's like all of the resolutions are doubled for some reason.

Ok so I got it working properly now. 

 

I had to right click on the games executable, go to properties > compatibility and then Disable display scaling on high DPI setting.

 

That seems to have fixed it completely.

Are you seeing the option to change it to that resolution in-game?

Yah, the option for the resolution I choose is in game. 

 

Under video settings -> resolution, i change that to the desired resolution and it is much too large for the window.

Is your desktop resolution the same as the in-game resolution?

Yes. I have the desktop and game resolutions both set to 3840x2160. 

 

The game window is 3840x2160 but the actual game itself is like double that inside the window if that makes sense.

If it's a 4K monitor you may need to make some changes to the video settings for it on your PC or see if the monitor is able to support it. We recommend playing at a lower resolution if the game doesn't properly display on your monitor though.
