Dead Space 2 2011 Manual PLP Instructions

Submitted by imusrt on 16 May, 2015 - 21:15

Fullscreen (best choice *): SoftTH (DX9 x86). In-game select massive resolution.
OR Borderless: In-game windowed, quit. Edit %LOCALAPPDATA%\EA Games\Dead Space 2\system.txt. Window.Height & Width = your PLP resolution (no border **). ShiftWindow (+ border = borderless).

1. * Game renders all well in fullscreen & FOV looks proper (actually looks very slightly higher FOV, which looks great).
2. Optional FOV: Widescreen Fixer (untested, may not work).
3. Occasionally, effect overlays do not span full PLP, cropped (floating around) somewhere on side monitors. But it's not striking while gaming (unnoticed in peripheral vision). DS3 2013 does not have the problem.
4. ** Deprecated: tester used "resolution+border" values in system.txt for borderless, which is not strictly proper.

(aim view, fullscreen)

(occasionally, effect overlays do not span full PLP)

(comparison: fullscreen. Notice player position [proper] & effect overlays' worst case)

(comparison: borderless. Notice player position [bit closer] & hint blurrier. This was caused by tester wrongly using "resolution+border" values in system.txt)
