So I want to disable the border and change the FOV and a couple of other things. I go into the video.scr, make the necessary edits, save, come out, and start up the game. But nothing changes - none of the settings that I alter change anything. When I open the scr. again, all the changes I made are still there so there's no point in setting it to read-only. Anyone got any advice?

Thanks,

Hmm it should work just fine. I did a small test with removing the comic style borders and had zero issues getting it to work as you can see in this screenshot: https://imgur.com/q6woDD5

Here's my full VIdeo.scr setting. Maybe this will help a little. The important lines are at the bottom.

Thanks for the response. I've literally copied and pasted your entire text into the file and still nothing. I also thought maybe it was something to do with my graphics driver overriding the local settings, but most of the setting for the game in my graphics card interface are on "application controlled". What I'm confused by is the fact that the changes I made in the scr. are being saved, they're just not being applied. I'd kind of understand it if the changes weren't saving, and every time I open the file it's reverted everything, but that isn't the case. I mean, the game is running fine as is so it's not the end of the world, but I really wanted to change the FOV and get rid of that border.

For the record, here's my settings:

Wish I had any other ideas to help you. Unfortunately I don't have any at this point since all is working just fine on my end.
No worries. I appreciate the reply in any case. Cheers.
Not sure if this'll work for you, but I just replied to another thread here on the same matter. A quick copy & paste:

--------------------
1. Getting your video.scr configuration file to work.
In my case, the video.scr file worked immediately, with no additional tweaking required. On Windows 10, for me, this file was located in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Techland\COJGunslinger\out\Settings (the AppData folder may be invisible for you, but can be navigated to by either typing in the path in the address bar or by displaying hidden folders in the settings). If you're able to modify settings in this file and see those changes reflected when you start the game, you can skip to point #2 (if that's applicable).

One reason that the file may NOT be working for you is if you are missing a registry entry - or the registry entry differs - specifying where this file (or rather, collection of files and directories) should exist. If you're comfortable using RegEdit, navigate to the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Techland\cojgunslinger - and if the registry folder does not exist, create it. If it's not already there, within the cojgunslinger folder you will need to add a new String, and rename it to 'writedir' (without the apostrophes). Then, edit that string to contain the Value Data 'Techland\CoJGunslinger' (again, without the apostrophes). This is the subdirectory path under C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local, from which the application will look for the various configuration files (so, the complete path eventually being 'C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Techland\COJGunslinger' - with further files and subfolders generated within that).
--------------------

There are a few other bits in the other thread that may or may not be of interest to you, regarding anti-aliasing and stuttering which you can read over here.

Hope that's of some use - let us know if tweaking the registry worked as this isn't something I could verify from my side as I didn't have the problem.
