    I discovered that I can edit the config file and set the resolution I need.  It won't let me select it through the UI.

    Just tested again on 20.5b2.  Same as before.

    Hi there!


    I am having the same problem where I can't use my maximum Samsung CRG49 resolution of 5120x1440. The max that 7D2D shows me in its UI is 3330x1440. I'm using Ubuntu 22 and an nVidia RTX 4070.


    popfizzle: what file did you edit?
