EHM 2005 - HD or FULL HD resolution (skin)

Post by slapstick44 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 5:59 pm

Hello, guys.

Is there any patch or way how to play EHM 2005 on higher resolution? I have 32" UHD monitor and text is pretty blurry. I see visible change against my previous 32" FHD monitor screen. I don't mind blurry skins, I just want to have text sharper if it is possible. Playing it in small window steals all joy.

How do you play this on today's monitors? Thanks.

Unfortunately this is the case when trying to upscale any low resolution application to a higher resolution display. The increased blurriness is because your UHD screen is trying to upscale the image to 4K whereas your FHD screen was only upscaling to 1080px.

One solution (assuming you have Windows 10) is to try the different scaling options in Windows. Right-click on the EHM 2005.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Change High DPI Settings. Then tick the "High DPI Scaling Override" box and try the different options under the drop-down menu immediately below that box. You will need to try one setting and load EHM to see if it makes it better/worse. Then try the next setting and re-load EHM and so forth.

If that doesn't work, you could run the game in windowed mode and try reducing Windows' display resolution. This might help to some degree but will require switching back and forth between resolutions when you load and exit EHM.
