  1. You would have to first set up a custom resolution for your video card or display. The resolution would probably then show up in the config tool (or could be set in the registry if it's still not listed there).
  2. Most older games were not designed with aspect ratios in mind and simply set the chosen resolution directly (so it's then up to the display or video card to handle it from there). Some newer or re-released games do their own letterboxing by using a widescreen resolution and then scaling the output within that (e.g. many of PopCap's non-widescreen games have been updated to do this). As for the resolution, you change the pairs to match the equivalent pairs for the resolution you want, e.g. if you had set 1280x960 in the config tool that first line in the registry will look like this: 00 05 00 00 C0 03 00 00 00 05 represents 1280 while C0 03 is 960. These can be substituted with the appropriate values from that hex values table, e.g. for 1920x1080 you have 80 07 (representing the width of 1920) and 38 04 (representing the height of 1080) so it would look like this: 80 07 00 00 38 04 00 00 This sort of approach applies to many games that require a hex change in the EXE/DLL or registry. I have made a basic wiki page for this game.

    Blank intro video files for The Polar Express. Extract to the installation folder confirming the replacement of the existing files when prompted. The Bink Video and RenderWare logos are still shown. This fix removes the book opening animation (this can be retained by skipping the replacement of C0Intro.bik when prompted).
  4. Unfortunately there is no single approach for getting widescreen working (even when games share the same engine). In this case widescreen resolutions can be set in the registry but are stretched from 4:3 (this also makes menu backgrounds disappear, but the text still works). Changing the aspect ratio values in the EXE doesn't seem to have any effect, so some more advanced fix would be required. ThirteenAG's Widescreen Fixes Pack has such fixes for many RenderWare games along with others, but these have to be made specifically each game. One option would be to make a 4:3 custom resolution equivalent to your native height (e.g. 1440x1080 if you have a 1920x1080 display) and then change the GPU scaling setting so you get a nice crisp pillarboxed output. You can set this resolution in the registry if it doesn't show up in the config tool. Windowed mode is available, but it's stuck at 640x480 (the config tool resolution seems to be ignored for this). You might be able to force a bigger window with Borderless Gaming or similar. For windowed mode: Use Config.exe in the installation folder to choose a different resolution (if you haven't already) to generate the necessary value. Go to the registry location - this will be something like HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\BlueTongue Entertainment\The Polar Express Open the vidmode value. Change the 01 on the second line to 00. The game will now run in a window. You can also set the resolution in the vidmode value (on the first line replace pairs 1-2 with the width and 4-6 with the height using hex values), but as mentioned this won't affect the resolution for windowed mode. EDIT: for WSGF registration try going directly to the create new account page.
  5. Frame rate capping is covered on Glossary:Frame rate (FPS). The game's own method (if it has one that works) is preferable, of course.
