Change screen resolutions [Updated 2017/11/19]

Change the in-game screen resolution using this module.

NOTE: subscribing will not work. This only serves as a hosting page for the mod. You must install it manually.
Here's the original archive:

Last Update: 0.0.1 build 34 (19 Nov 2017).


1. Download using the link above and extract everything into the Age2HD directory in steamapps.
2. Close the game and go to the \mods_custom\ directory under your Age2HD directory in steamapps.
3. Open the reschange_config.ini file and change the ResX and ResY values to whatever resolution your monitor and/or graphics driver supports.
4. Have fun, the game will launch with your resolution. Switching away from the game will temporarily restore resolution back to desktop.


1. To disable the module, you can set "Enable=0" in the [Resolution] section of the reschange_config.ini file. You can also add ''-nomod'' (without quotes) to the Launch Options in Steam properties: this will disable not only ResChange but also any other .aoedll files in mods_custom.
2. To disable automatic resolution changes when you minimize or Alt+Tab, set "ResetOnFocusLoss=0" in the ini file. This will only change the resolution once, on startup, and it will not be restored until the game is closed completely.
3. When ResetOnFocusLoss is enabled, the game will currently be minimized when switching with Alt+Tab. This is intended for now, as the resolution is changing, and the game has to register the changes (otherwise you may have to perform double Alt+Enter upon coming back). This may change later, but note, if you enable the module with ResetOnFocusLoss and nothing but your desktop resolution, it's up to you to prevent needless self-minimization from happening. Disable the module when you don't intend to use a resolution different from your desktop resolution.

Hey guys,
Just wanted to let you know that this mod will not receive any further updates, as I am now officially working on Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition.
Thanks a lot for your interest in this mod over the years!

It works in the menu part, but in the in-game doesn't.
I changed to 1280x720 and still big.
(I have a resolution 3840x2460 predetermined)
Thanks anyway. :)
