Can you launch Minecraft from Technic with a fixed resolution?

Recommended Posts

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
These set the Minecraft window resolution. 
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:

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...


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


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

      When I go full screen in any mod pack the screen becomes way too big for my monitor. I have gone into the config file for each pack and manually change it but it still too big even If I put it on something really low. I have tried to change the resolution in the launcher settings but it also docent seem to help my problem it appears to only change the window resolution instead of the full screen resolution. I have also tried to re-install Technic and all my mod-packs but the problem seems to persist. Anyone know a fix? It is extremely annoying to play in a window plus it also hurts my performance.

      After a recent bug with one of my other games, I cannot change the main page of my Technic Launcher and its way too big! My resolution for my laptop is 1920 x 1080 and runs fine. I have tried messing with the launcher settings but that only works when the modpack that you selected has loaded, if anybody knows anything on how to fix this, please let me know!

      Why hello there! I make all sorts of videos on my channel, but Tekkit tends to be one of my favorite. Make sure to leave a like if you liked the video and dislike if you disliked it xD

      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.
