Ok, so my laptop is garbage but runs fortnite 40-60 FPS in a window the size in the image provided, I want to play at that resolution but in a full screen , so I want to find out if I can set a specific resolution in a full screen . The lowest the in game settings go are 720p, please no smart answers like “just run it full screen on 720”, cos my laptop is garbage and 20-30 FPS is not fun. Any clues?

This is the resolution I want to be full screened

    Is your gpu by nvidia or amd? I'm not sure if Intel gpu's can set custom resolutions, probably not. – Elise May 10 '18 at 21:49

From what little research I did, it seems that any methods of changing graphics quality and setting custom resolutions within the UE4 config files are outdated and won't work anymore, but there is a 'proper' way of setting custom resolutions.

You can create custom resolutions in your AMD drivers, allowing you to select them in the game, if the game supports custom resolutions, rather than only allowing pre-selected resolutions.
(These instructions only work for AMD gpu's)

  1. First you need to open your AMD Radeon Settings by right clicking on the desktop and selecting the AMD Radeon Settings option
    context menu with the AMD Radeon Settings
  2. Click on the Display tab on the bottom of the settings window and click + Create where it says Custom Resolutions
    AMD Radeon Settings, Display tab
  3. Change your Horizontal resolution and Vertical resolution to your preferred values and click ✓Save
    AMD Radeon Settings, custom resolution creation window
  4. After you have saved your custom resolution, it should be available to pick in the game.

There is a chance that Fortnite might not pull the available resolutions from Windows, but rather have a list of pre-set resolutions instead, in which case this will not work.

  • I don’t have a Radeon, mines ati and has a different control centre, I’m not blé to download this either I don’t think =/ – Yoshirou May 12 '18 at 12:32
  • ATI was acquired by AMD in 2006. If you are still using drivers that say ATI, not AMD, you should seriously consider updating them. Honestly, updating drivers would probably let you run the game at reasonable fps at a reasonable resolution anyway, if your current drivers are indeed so old. – Elise May 14 '18 at 2:06
  • I’ll try this when I get home from school but I’m pretty sure my drivers are up to date, should I be using ati or amd drivers? – Yoshirou May 14 '18 at 10:32
  • Updated my drivers, my radeon settings doesn't have custom resolutions – Yoshirou May 14 '18 at 21:24
  • What is the model of your gpu? Also, it is quite possible that since you are on a laptop, your radeon settings won't have the custom resolution option. – Elise May 15 '18 at 11:37
