Crusader Kings

Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs and the Emperor struggles with the Pope. At this very moment the Pope has declared that those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of all sins.

Gather prestige and piety and the world will whisper your name in awe. Will you co-opt other monarchs, and the Pope, under your leadership to liberate the Holy Land? Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Due to there being no resolution settings in-game, the only way to change resolution is in the games files

Navigate to %SteamDir%/SteamApps/common/Crusader Kings

Open settings.txt and change 1024 and 768 to desired resolution (for a resolution of 1920x1080, change 1024 to 1920 and 768 to 1080)

Gameplay renders fine, but the menu is offset to the top left corner of the screen
