How to fix the resolution on Widescreen and make your eyes stop hurting.
How to Fix Widescreen and Ultra Widescreen Resolution
What to Do
Hey Kerbals, if you want to play on your fancy monitor all you need to do is manually change the resolution in the settings file.
First of all close the game.
KSP 2 like many other games have a file to save your settings. For KSP 2 it is the “Settings.json” file and it can be found in:
- C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\Intercept Games\Kerbal Space Program 2\Global
You can press [WINDOWS] + [R] to open “run” and paste the path above.
Now open the “Settings.json” (right klick and select “open with …”) with the Windows editor or Notepad++.
Change the line “ScreenResolution” to your resolution of your monitor.
Only edit the value of that line so whatever is between the “” eg: “1920×1080” to “5120×1440” or whatever your monitor supports.
Now save the file and run the game. Enjoy!
ok so when i go into my user folder the AppData folder isnt there
windows 11 makes appdata folder hidden for some reason. right click on the window it should be in and click hidden
But does that mean the 8 ball is off to the left. Can you move the UI elements around like KSP1?
It’s the new UI of KSP 2. I also don’t like it. This setting has not effect on it 🙂
For linux it was in /steamapps/compatdata/954850/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/AppData/LocalLow/Intercept Games/Kerbal Space Program 2/Global/
Yea, I was wondering why only 4 resolutions are available and not my monitor default one 😀 thanks.
Thank you sir for finding the settings file, had screen display issues, this resolved it.
i cannot seem to find this file. im on windows 11 and ive found the kerbal 2 folder in my steam apps but there is no settings.json file anywhere
It is not under steam apps. You need to look for it in your user profile.
found it! Thanks!!
