Inconsistent use of GameUserSettings
It is possible to alter ...\MyProject\Saved\Config\Windows\GameUserSettings.ini to effect the behavior of the resolution and startup state of the game when run as "Standalone Game" from the Editor. However the settings don't appear to effect a packed game and there are no Editor settings that allow you to do the same thing for a packed version of your game (in UE4.1). There is apparently nowhere in the editor or project settings that allow you to control this. I would like to be able to set the following and have them affect a release build of the game as they do when running a standalone game from the editor: ResolutionSizeX=0 ResolutionSizeY=0 bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen=True FullscreenMode=0 Can you advise me as to how to make the same settings that effect the "standalone game" when run from the editor work with a packaged release version of my game? I can use a Blueprint to set "r.FullScreenMode" but I can't set bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen for instance. I don't want to hardwire a screen resolution using r.SetRes. Some people on the forum say you can run the game and then alter WindowsNoEditor\MyGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini but I don't have an instance of that, even after running the game. I have even tried adding one, to no avail. I am looking for a solution which doesn't involve editing the game engine in C++. Thanks
