Custom Resolution Trickster Launcher v2.0

 

launcher.png

 
 
 Some time ago I took a look at Cait's Guide to Custom Screen Resolutions and Chat Bars and since I thought it would be annoying to have to repeat all steps every time I developed this small app which allows to specify any game resolution in just a few seconds. What it does behind the scenes is simply modify the registry values you would otherwise change by hand. After the new resolution is set you can either launch the game from this launcher or use the default one*.

 

*From time to time, for no apparent reason, the game crashes with the message "Access Violation" when run from my launcher and there is nothing I have been able to do to fix it.


Screenshots:

Default 1024x728 resolution on a 1280x728 screen (image just stretches)

Custom 1280x728 resolution

Custom 1360x728 resolution + custom chat width of 544px

Custom 1920x1080 resolution (just for showing off)
Spoiler

Custom 640x480 resolution + windowed mode

How to use:
 Copy "Launcher.jar" it to your Trickster installation folder and execute as administrator (requires to have Java installed).

 Remember; if you experience any "Access Violation" crash, just switch to the default launcher after saving your changes with this one.


Notes:
 Many UI elements will overlap on resolutions lower than native (1024x768).
 Some interfaces will look weird / glitched as well, given they weren't thought to be used for different resolutions (take card reading as an example).

It crashes from game violation because it counts as a hacking tool, since it modifies the game's files.

Actually it does not. It only modifies Windows' registry. Trickster files remain untouched.

Trickster still sees it as a hacking tool.

Well, you can always save changes and use default launcher afterwards.

Imma try this one after my homework today. :). If this works, and trickster don't find it as a hacktool, this will be ultra useful. <3.

how about you go read a book?

From what I've tested, it works most of the time. I only got the "Violation" message a few times. And if it gets troublesome you can just save changes in the custom launcher and then use the default one. Custom resolution will remain applied.

I keep getting the error message 'Could not find the main class: gui.Launcher. Program will exit.' My Trickster is just in a folder on my desktop.

This is AWESOME! Thank you, i knew how to use regedit without using 3rd party programs but this saves time and hastle of looking at the registry roots.

Weird. Only thing I can think of is your Java installation isn't up to date or corrupted. Could you try reinstalling Java 7? Sorry for the inconvenience.

New version added. Now "Play" button only writes to Windows' registry when changes are done instead of always writting them, saving the user time and effort.

thanks for all the replies. ill give this a try, even though i am able to change my game res with cait's guide but this will come in handy as you don't have to go through all the steps to change file names.
