    Screen resolution issue: help needed

    Hello, I need help with dark Messiah "complete" to change the screen resolution because there appeared in the screen "out of frequency". I already uninstall and install the game but still have the same problem ... Do you have any idea of how to change the resolution of the Dark Messiah without having to open the game?

    I don't currently have DM installed on the PC that I am typing this email into so I can't verify the steps exactly, but you can refer to the following instructions that I have lifted off Tweakguides.com

    Config Files
    Dark Messiah holds many of the settings you select in the in-game options - along with a range of other custom variables - in a file called config.cfg, which can be found in your \Program Files\Ubisoft\Dark Messiah of Might and Magic\mm\cfg directory, or under \Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\[Username]\dark messiah might and magic single player\mm\cfg for those playing via Steam. This file can be opened and edited using any text editor, such as the Windows Wordpad. The config.cfg file is very important, so you should first create a backup of it before you edit it or apply any other advanced tweaks.
    While you can add, edit and remove commands directly in config.cfg, it is recommended that instead you create an entirely new file for adding custom commands. To do this, in the same directory as config.cfg, right-click in an empty area and select New>Text Document. Rename this new text document to autoexec.cfg (not autoexec.cfg.txt), and you can now insert all your custom commands into this config file. By default the Source engine looks for autoexec.cfg at startup, and if it finds it, it will automatically load and execute all the valid commands. Importantly: In Dark Messiah the engine appears not to automatically execute autoexec.cfg in singleplayer mode, so you must add the line +exec autoexec.cfg to your DMOMM launch icon - see further below for more details.
    For multiplayer, an autoexec.cfg file will be detected automatically, but must be inserted under the \Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\[Username]\dark messiah might and magic multiplayer\cfg\ directory.
    Make sure that you back up any file that you edit first though. You can also change the value in the registry for any Steam game but I'll leave that to you to research if you know what you are doing.

    P.S. I moved your post into a new thread as your subject did not have anything to do with the topic of the thread that you posted your issue in.
