In Civilization V, there is a file in the user documents that you can change to set a custom resolution, but the file no longer exists in Civilization VI. Is there a way I can set a custom resolution in Civilization VI?


The file in which you can change your resolution still exists, just under a different name.

Documents > My Games > Sid Meier's Civilization VI > AppOptions.txt

After opening that file in a text editor, scroll to the [Video] section, and find the RenderWidth and RenderHeight variables. That part of the file will look like this:

;Render width in pixels.
RenderWidth 1920

;Render height in pixels.
RenderHeight 1080

The numbers that come after RenderWidth and RenderHeight are what you want to change to your custom resolution. The example shown above is for a 1920x1080 resolution.
