New World – 4K Partial Screen Resolution Issues Fix

4K Partial Screen Resolution Issues Fix

I have 4K monitor which I have set to 150% scaling in Windows display settings. When starting the game I could see only the top left 1/4 of the starting screens with the remaining 3/4 black. So I was unable to click the OK in the warning screen.

Fullscreen Optimizations & High DPI Scaling

Disable fullscreen optimizations by following the steps below. So you can fix some performance issues. Also, by changing the high DPI scaling setting, you will fix the blurry text and graphics problem.

  • Go to the folder where the game is installed (Steam Library > Right-click on New World Preview > Manage > Browse local files)
  • Mine was: F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\New World Public Test\
  • Open the Bin64 folder
  • Then right click on Javelin_x64.exe
  • Select Properties
  • Go to the Compatibility tab.
  • Tick the Disable fullscreen optimizations
  • Then click on the “Change high DPI settings” button.
  • Under the “High DPI scaling override” section, tick the “Override high DPI scaling behavior“.
  • Use the “Scaling performed by:” drop-down menu and select the “Application”.
  • Click on the OK and again OK.

High DPI.

And also, apply the same changes for NewWorldLauncher.exe in the game’s main folder.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
