Thanks Luke. If you can show me some pictures of how they look on their screens.

Yet I have to fix some things, menus moved or large icons. But I wanted to get soon a beta, so you guys could enjoy all your screens and also report me faults.

The radar, is what makes me crazier. I will try to do our best.

In principle there is nothing else to do, as explained to you Sir.Djs is the right way.
But many people with bad extracted ZIP files without creating the corresponding folder tree. So, created this little tutorial.

The guide for dummies.
  • 1) find the folder "..\Documents\Riptide\out\Data\"
  • 2) Extract the zip inside, preserving the folder structure.
  • 3) initiating Dead Island Riptide on your Steam.
The file structure should be:
+Data\ +menu\ +hud\ -HUD.xui -hud_skin.xui +scr\ -BackgroundModuleScreen.xui -BackgroundModuleSkin.xui -Curtain.xui -DashboardAgreement.xui -etc...* *The other files are in this folder.

I hope you enjoy the game, in correct Eyefinity.

It is intended for any combination of 3 monitors in Landscape [<-][---][->].

Hi and thankyou for your efforts its much appreciated and make's a huge differance to the game.

I am wondering if it is possible to modify this to work for 3x 4:3 monitors running @ 3840x1024 or 4800x1200 resolutions currently the menu items are all on top of each other for me such as the quests. (this is while running the fix) every thing else is great. im guessing its just that im not running widescreens is the problem.

This is the only thing preventing me from running this on triple screens now.

im sorry but i must use the old 4:3 CRT screens as the LED / LCD screens just can not draw the picture quick enough for me and generate nasty head ache's even seizures.

cant wait for OLED screens to become more affordable.

any help you can provide is much appreciated and thankyou.

Edit:- A sreenshot so people may understand what i mean

^This please. I'm also running at 3840x1024.

The problem is the size of the skulls and stars. By making a line break, the text is centered with the total vertical size of the icons.
I'm trying to fix it in more than one menu, but for now can not find a direct solution to resize those icons.

I'll keep working on this.

Thankyou again dude, maybe Deep Silver should look into putting you on the staff as you seem to have more of an idea than they do.

Deepsilver if your in here reading this stuff why are you customers fixing your mistake's rather than playing thier game.

I think with the arrangements in Version 0.3 will be happy. Now the menus fit all screen resolutions, being always centered.

DonkyBoY, do not have much faith that come to help. Widescreen theme involves extra work they do not believe necessary. In addition we are a small community of crazy with 3 monitors.
And a small temporary solution for Quest.

The doctor is in, thanks for add me to the list of Mods, I hope so it easier for everyone to find.

Jverhey, I am pleased to be of help. ^^
