I found a post from 2018 on how to change the game Resolution in Full Screen Mode to something other then one of the default selections.  It said to go into the preferences.xml folder in the World of Tanks folder.  I don't have that folder, I tried "show hidden files" as well.  1980x1080 (16:9) is currently the highest default I can select.  I've watch YouTube video's where players are seen having higher selections in the drop down, while in full screen mode, not sure why I do not have those options.

 

Also, the Interface Scailing is either default or x1, there isn't a x2 option like Ive seen on other players video setting screen.

What is the native resolution of your display?

Recommended 1360x786, but I can choose up to (same as game)  1920x1080.

I meant the resolution of the monitor itself. You can't run the game at a higher resolution than what your monitor is capable of displaying (it only has so many pixels).

Sense I am currently playing with a higher resolution, does that mean the game detects the maximum the monitor will handle?  And if I get a new monitor with a higher resolution with the drop down menu show and updated selection?
 
Thank you for your quick responses.

To be honest, I'm not sure. 1920x1080 might be the maximum the client is configured for.

 

My monitor is 1080 and that's the highest resolution available in my game client a well. Maybe somebody with a higher res monitor can chime in.

 

I'm surprised that it already allows a higher resolution than what your monitor allows. How does it look at 1080?

The color changes a little, slightly darker almost like the movie Saving Private Ryan colors compared to Star Wars.  Also it looks just a tad gritty, but its hardly noticeable.  I was watching YouTube replays and noticed what I was watching looked clearer then what I play with.  I had thought I was max everything and was wondering why did look as crisp as on YouTube. 1650x1050 is what I normally play at, so that (for me) looks pretty well with vivid colors and readable fonts.
