Prey (2006 version) - Resolution Fix
by Tore Andersen

The original Prey from 2006, developed by Human Head Studios / 3D Realms and released by 2K Games. For unknown reasons, the game doesn't support the 1080p resolution. This is very strange, as the game engine, iD Tech 4 aka. Doom 3 engine, is fully capable. The game only supports 4:3 and 16:10 aspect ratio. The 16:9 menu is there, but has no function. The developers must have overlooked this by mistake, but it is easily fixed.

1: Open the Prey game folder and open the "base" folder.

2: Open "preyconfig.cfg" with a notepad, and find the following two lines:
seta r_customHeight
seta r_customWidth

3: Change the values to any resolution that match your monitor (including resolutions that are not available from the in-game settings menu)

4: Find the following line:

5: Change the value to match your monitor if needed

6: Save and close the file.

That's it. Prey will now run in the set resolution, including 1080p. ...As it should.
