Fortnite is back, and Chapter 2 has officially begun! To start with, we have the return of an old bug that initially cropped up last year. If you have logged on to Fortnite and things look a little odd, the game might be outputting a usual screen size to your TV. In this guide, we will show you how to change the screen size on Fortnite.
How To Change Screen Size On Fortnite
This issue seems to be affecting consoles at the moment mainly, so I will cover fixes for PS4 and Xbox One below.
On PlayStation 4, go to the Game menu then change the below settings:
- Set “Uncap Framerate” to On
- Set “Invert View” to On
- Hit Triangle to Apply the changes
This should force an update of the screen resolution, and fix the issue for you. Remember to set the two settings back to their original values afterward.
To fix the screen size issues on Xbox One, follow the below steps:
- Go to System Settings in your console
- Select “Display and Sound”
- Select “Video Output”
- Select “Calibrate HDTV”
- Press Next cycle through screen sizes until the problem is fixed
Now, these fixes may not completely solve the problem but are certainly worth trying. If you have no luck, you may need to wait until Epic patch the issue.
For those asking about PS4 framerate. Go into your game settings and find the setting that says “Uncapped frame rate”. It is under the “Game” section. By default this is turned off. Turn it ON. It removes the 30 fps cap and makes the game so much smoother.
