Hi, like many others I like to record my adventures on Minecraft and put them on YouTube. I was wondering if there was a way to adjust the Technic launcher's settings to open Minecraft with a fixed resolution, such as 1080x720, which would be conducive to making, editing, and publishing YouTube videos.

 

I can't find a way to do so. Currently, my solution is to change the resolution on my computer to 720p and play in Full Screen mode. I was hoping there might be a more elegant solution?

 

If not, is there any chance of us seeing this capability built into the launcher in the future? As far as I know, it's not a difficult functionality to add. It's really just changing the start-up parameters when launching Minecraft, right?

 

Thanks in advance for what I hope will be a better solution than changing my screen resolution every time I want to record a new episode of my BTeam series. I love the work the Technic team does.

Look for the `options.txt` file in each modpack folder.
 
Open it in your favourite text editor and find these two lines
 
overrideWidth:0
overrideHeight:0
 
These set the Minecraft window resolution. 
 
overrideWidth:1280
overrideHeight:720
 
However, if you wish to record your sessions, you will need to take the windows borders into consideration, so effectivly, to get an output of 1280x720, set them too:
 
overrideWidth:1296
overrideHeight:758
 
Enjoy.

Just found this in another thread here. Kaytfoh deserves the credit for finding the solution. Seems he found it from same place I did :)

Ahh, found the answer. Google to the rescue!

If you go into your modpack folders there is a txt file called options.txt
In that file there are two lines...

overrideWidth:0
overrideHeight:0

Those control Minecrafts starting resolution. If you want to go to 1280x720 for example you'd put in:

overrideWidth:1296
overrideHeight:758

Reason for the extra pixels is to account for the Windowed borders.
