The hype from the initial release has now somewhat declined for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage. Well, with more players tuning in to play the game, issues and bugs have been cropping up. From the forced chromatic aberration that has left players dizzy and nauseous to the regular crashing and freezing issues, the list is endless. While none of the bugs have been game-breaking so far, they are irritating, to say the least. Another such bug that players might have encountered is the inability to change the resolution issue. So, if you are encountering the same thing, here’s everything you need to know.
Assassin’s Creed (AC) Mirage Unable to Change Resolution/Full screen Issue: Is there any fix yet
While there may be no official fix for this issue, there are some effective workarounds that the player base has resorted to. These workarounds are not guaranteed fixes and may not work in each case. Nevertheless, they are worth a shot!
Tweak the AC Mirage.ini Config file
Open File Explorer on your PC and navigate to the Documents folder. Locate the “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” folder within Documents. After that, follow the steps given below:
Within the AC Mirage folder, you’ll find a file named “ACMirage.ini.” Right-click on this file and select “Open with Notepad.”
In the .ini file, look for the lines related to “FullScreenWidth” and “FullScreenHeight.” These are the lines where you can change the resolution settings.
Update the values to your desired resolution. For example, if your monitor resolution is 1920×1080, change the values to “1920” for FullScreenWidth and “1080” for FullScreenHeight.
After making the changes, click “File” and then “Save” to preserve the edits.
Right-click the “ACMirage.ini” file again, select “Properties”, and check the box that says “Read-only” to prevent automatic resets of your resolution settings.
Click “Apply” and then “OK” to save these changes.
Changing Window Mode in the .ini File
If you encounter issues with fullscreen mode, you can also try changing the window mode settings in the .ini file.
Open the “ACMirage.ini” file as mentioned above.
Look for the “WindowMode” line in the file.
The default value may be set to “0,” which represents fullscreen. You can experiment by changing it to “1” for borderless windowed mode or “2” for windowed mode.
After making the adjustment, save the changes as before.
Once again, set the file to “Read-only” in its properties to retain your selected window mode.
Adjusting the Active Monitor
If you’re still encountering resolution and fullscreen issues or if the previous solutions didn’t work, there’s another workaround to try. To begin with, launch the game as you normally would. Once in the game, go to the Options menu. Navigate to “Screen”, then “Display”. Here, you’ll find an option called “Active Monitor”. If there are a few options to choose from, try them all to see which one solves the issue for you. Don’t forget to apply the changes. After choosing the Active Monitor, you might have to change the resolution from the option just below the Active Monitor setting to your monitor’s native resolution.
Update GPU drivers and run the game on a dedicated GPU
It is a new game, so perhaps your GPU drivers have to be updated as well to get rid of such issues. The only way to find out is by paying a visit to the manufacturer’s official website (Nvidia and AMD) and looking up the drivers for your specific GPU. If an update is available, download and install it. It will require you to restart your PC as well. After that, before launching the game, just type “Graphics” in the Windows search box to open the Graphics Settings menu, and from the list of installed programs that appear, select Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s .exe file and set it to “High Performance”. Now launch the game and see if you are able to enjoy it in fullscreen.
Rename the Assassin’s Creed folder
In the My Documents section of your PC, you should be able to see a folder named “Assassin’s Creed Mirage”. You can either remove this folder or rename it. We recommend renaming it so that you have the original file for use in case things go south. Just remember that doing this will cause the game to create a new “Assassin’s Creed Mirage Folder”, resetting all preferred settings.
Verifying the files might solve the issue as well. But if it does not, you can try reinstalling the game completely. But before you go down this route, here is how you can verify the game files across different platforms.
Epic Games: From your library, select AC Mirage and click on the three-dot icon next to it. Choose “Manage”, and select the Verify option to verify your files.
Ubisoft Connect: Head to the AC Mirage page in Ubisoft Connect, and select Properties in the menu on the left-hand side. Now, under Local Files, choose Verify Files.
With those workarounds, you should be able to change the resolution of the game.
