AMD Radeon Settings

AMD users can solve the problem with a simple change.

  • Open the AMD Radeon Settings
  • Go to the Display menu
  • Just switch the Virtual Super Resolution option to On.
  • You can now change the resolution in the game.


It is possible to fix your resolution issue by changing the game's configuration file.

  • Go to the folder where Death Stranding is installed.
  • Right-click on the settings.cfg file
  • Select Edit
  • To change the resolution to 1920x1080, change the variables in the file as follows.

    "rendering_width" "1920"
    "rendering_height" "1080"
    "hdr" "0"
    "window_left" "-10"
    "window_top" "0"
    "window_right" "1910"
    "window_bottom" "1080"
    "window_mode" "1"
  • Save

If you are not allowed to replace the file, or if the file keeps resetting, the Nvidia Geforce Experience may be preventing the file from being modified. So you should close Nvidia Geforce Experience completely.
