Question [Q] Changing my phone's resolution and playing HD games

Hi All,

I'm using an off-brand device which's resolution is [FWVGA (854x480) pixels]. I bought Need For Speed Shift from Play Store,installed and downloaded the data(approx. 100 MB).But when I opened the game, everything's white and grey,only the music and some of the texts are fine but everything else is like invisible.No cars,roads or terrains.

I contacted with EA and they suggested me to change the game's resolution in the option, but as I can't see anything, I can't do it.I replied them with it but it's been 3 days and no answer from them.

As I'm using Android 4.2.1(JB) I can't use ChainFire 3D. Can you guys suggest me anything?

If you don't mind then kindly change the resolution settings in your game and give me the settings file or is there any way to change the resolution option manually by editing the data files?

And after this help to delete the game settings under root/data/data and sd/android/obb to download the gamefiles again. It's not enough 100mb for a game like this. Or better delete only sd/android/obb/need...and start the app again to download all needed files.

Is there any to change the game's resolution(not my phone's)? Also, I told EA 'bout my problem and they didn't say anything 'bout the data size.I surfed some off-sites and they also said it's size is approx. 100 MB

If you have the Xposed framework try the module App Settings. It lets you override a bunch of settings. Override the resolution. If that doesn't work, override the DPI.

Sorry but there's no such files.I decompiled the apk and got a file named "AndroidManifest.xml" but there's something un-readable texts inside and nothing familiar.And inside the data files, there are some files named resource.dz,gamedata and gamesett. See the attachments.

Dont unzip the apk...Go to the data files..

If game is installed , then there must be data file...

If you cant find that file , search with that games package name...

Its impossible that there isnt any such file..

Search agn carefully...
