I've been having a problem where certain games, when run in DirectX 11 (but NOT DirectX 9), set themselves to a very low, unacceptable resolution despite whatever I set them to run at myself.
I own four games capable of running in DX11: Civilization V, Crysis 2, Total War: Shogun 2, and Batman: Arkham City.
Of these four, the only one that will actually run in 1920x1080 (or anything above 1280x1024) is Total War: Shogun 2, with which there are no issues whatsoever.
But Crysis 2, Civ 5, and B:AC all refuse to run in anything but either 1280x1024 or as low as 800x600. Once again, this is ONLY when the games are run in DX11 mode. I have tried changing the resolution manually, in the .ini's, but it just sets itself back no matter what I do.
In Crysis 2 and Civ 5, the resolution field in the game's settings (NOT the .ini) is left blank when in DirectX 11 mode, and I can't change it at all. It doesn't show up as anything, and runs at the same low resolutions I mentioned before. Only when I revert to DX9 are the games able to run at 1920x1080.
My system has:
- i5-2500K OC'd to 4.5 GHz
- 8GB of RAM @ 1333 MHz
- Sapphire 6950 flashed to 6970 and OC'd to 900/1375 (this is NOT the problem, I've tried flashing it back and setting the clocks to stock settings to no avail)
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
PLEASE, somebody help me!!! I want to run games in DX11 and I just can't. I've searched all over for answers, and haven't been able to find anyone with the same problem. ANY advice would be such a help.
i think im running civ 5 at 1920x1080 but i'll check again
