"Failed to CreateGameWindow. Resolution (1280x720) unsupported?" error

★★★ Newbie

Tried many different things, but doesn't work.

 

Did you try to set another resolution?

- Yes I did. Changed it to 1980 - 1080

I tried this:

Open up videoconfig.txt with Microsoft Notepad.   

Change the following lines to a supported screen resolution. For example if your PC monitor supports 1080p, you would edit the file with the following values:

"setting.defaultres"       "1920"
"setting.defaultresheight"       "1080"

 

Does it work now?

- No. Same problem.

 

Have I the latest Nvidia updates and drivers?

- Yes

 

Have I tried to reinstall the game, and reinstall Origin?

- Yes.

SOLVED:

 

In addition to what I tried earlier. I also tried this.

 

What you need to do is find the two lines; (C:\Users\"username"\Documents\Respawn\Apex\local)

"setting.fullscreen" "1"
"setting.nowindowborder" "0"

 

This is telling the game to launch in fullscreen mode, all you need to do is change them to;

"setting.fullscreen" "0"
"setting.nowindowborder" "1"

You have to find the file called "videoconfig.txt"

Can be found at:
C:\Users\"Your PC name"\Saved Games\Respawn\Apex\local

Then right click on "videoconfig" and open with Notepad.
Change the value of "setting.fullscreen" "1" to "setting.fullscreen" "0" and "setting.nowindowborder" "0" to "setting.nowindowborder" "1".

Hope it helps!

I don't want to play the game in a window, is there any way to fix this while being able to play full screen?

Hello,

There are ways to do that.

Solution 1:
C:\Users\"Your PC name"\Saved Games\Respawn\Apex\local
Right click on "videoconfig.txt" and open with Notepad.
Change
"setting.fullscreen" "0" to "1"
"setting.nowindowborder" "1" to "0"

Solution 2:
Don't open Origin (make sure it is gone from your taskbar), Select Apex from the start menu and launch it from there. It goes full screen.

Hope it helps!

This worked perfectly along with changing the default setting for the resolution to my max settings for the monitor.  Thanks!!
