Can you launch Minecraft from Technic with a fixed resolution?

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • Technic Launcher
      By GoofPavlica
      So for the first time in forever I don't have a problem with my modpack, I have a problem with the Technic launcher. I just recently upgraded to windows 10 and for some reason it made everything seem a little bigger on my screen and what I think is a lower resolution as well. My main problem is that the Technic Launcher doesn't fit the entire screen anymore and its very annoying not seeing the entire thing, as well as having to move it around constantly. Do any of you know how to change the technic launcher display, or even better, how to revert to my old display and resolution settings from windows 8, before the upgrade to 10.
      Much help is appreciated  
      Edit: To top it off, after I switched to windows 10, with my luck, my modpack just stopped working. I didnt update it or anything, It just started crashing again right after I click play. So I went through and updated some mods to current versions, added two mods ( Better FPS and Chocolate Quest) and updated my pack. At first it worked and went through the FML start up and crashed. Again, now it crashes right at the start up.

      Edit 2: After fully shutting down my computer and let it sit for the night, I turned it on, and for what ever reason, everything was fixed and working. Gotta love technology.

      How can I change the game's resolution/window size inside the technic launcher? I don't want to have to manually resize the window each time.
    • Launcher Resolution Too Big for Screen (CrunchBang Linux)
      By Bukimari
      Ran into a little bit of an issue after installing the launcher to my CrunchBook for the first time just now; the launcher itself works fine and is fully functional, however its resolution is too large for my screen so I can't see all of the launcher window. There's no setting to change the launcher resolution in the settings, so I was wondering if there was a manual fix, such as launching it using a --resolution command or some such equivalent? I'm using it on a netbook so the resolution is quite small (1024x600). I can move the window around using alt+click with no issues, it's simply a minor inconvenience that I would like to avoid every time I launch it. Thanks for any help!

      Okay so if you don't want to watch the video I will explain, basically I created a world with two pages. One of them being Pink Slime.name Block and the other being Ocean Biome, in that order. After doing so and visiting the world you will notice the pink slime liquid turns to slime, this causes the game to lag and freeze up. If on a server you get an error that basically tells you you don't have enough PC power to render it. Thanks for watching and please don't create the world like that, I found it was okay to use the pink slime page on its own as it makes small pools.
