How to change Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD PC resolution and improve graphics quality

OK then, after a long waiting of PC gamers for a new Tony Hawks Pro Skater video game on PC platform, Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD is the new come, but unfortunately when they mention "HD" on the game title they mean it, the game run only on HD resolution on PC mean only 1280x720, and no option to change the resolution on game option or anywhere.

But we are here to find a solution, to change the resolution to any set like Full-HD 1920x1080 or any other resolution you like just follow the steps bellow and you'll be done, basically, most of games got a configuration file ready for edit, and fortunately Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD has one, and we are going to play with it.


Steps to change Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD PC resolution:
  • First thing first go to this folder of the game "\Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD\Engine\Config" and do a backup of the file "BaseEngine.ini" that we will modifies.
  • Then open the file "BaseEngine.ini" using any text editor like notepad.
  • Now using the search (ctrl+f) find this line "ResX=1280" and "ResY=720" (without quotes).
  • Now write the resolution you want instead of the 1280x720, example for full-HD resolution:
ResX=1920
ResY=1080

  •  Now save the file and close it.
Furthermore I have more than resolution to change, you can even improve all graphics setting from shadow quality, texture resolution and even activate DirectX 11 (for this Im not sure if its really DX11), for doing that take a look at the [SystemSettings] section of that configuration file, all variable there are for graphics quality, you increase them or setting things to "true" to activate some graphics features, here is an example:
 
Fullscreen=True
AllowD3D11=True

These to activate DX11 and fullscreen to auto on startup
Also you can increase the graphics details:
DetailMode=7

And I have more, a gift for you guys, here is a my modified BaseEngine.ini file if you dont want such headach, with full-HD resolution and improved graphics, repleace it with your BaseEngine.ini.
