Modder Already Unlocked Fixed Res of Dark Souls PC
Today, From Software released Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition for the PC, much to the delight of hardcore, masochistic gamers everywhere. But there’s one problem for those most hardcore of the hardcore: the game’s resolution was fixed at 1024 x 720.
But that wouldn’t do for the most hardcore of the hardcore of the hardcore. One enterprising NeoGAF poster called Durante went ahead and created a free fix for those who want to play the game in higher resolution. And he did it within 23 minutes of the game’s release.
Of course, while the mod came out 23 minutes after Dark Souls was available, Durante points out that, in fact, the work on the mod took longer than that:
“I did not do the entire work for this in 23 minutes. I developed an interception dll framework during this week to prepare for the job. I did the actual work to make the game render at higher res in that amount of time though—based on the framework—and spent a few more hours testing and adding the config file.”
