People play Risen often without looking in-depth for solutions to these problems they encounter. One can only watch on streaming platforms, how many of them struggle with the problems. To bypass some impassable obstacles, often cheats are used. These are the bugs that occur:

  • The mouse sensitivity is too high on high resolution monitors
  • Loading screen images are stretched because they were prepared for 4:3 monitors
  • The game cannot detect ultra widescreen resolutions, and the interface is stretched on 16:10 monitors
  • The character disappears when climbing ledges

For all these problems comes Risen FPS and aspect ratio fix. It comes with

  • FPS limiter
  • new loading screen images
  • changes values in the INI files to make the game run at any resolution and aspect ratio, like 3:2, 16:10, 16:9, 21:9, 32:9, and lowers the mouse sensitivity
