Dungeon Siege - Custom Resolution, Enable Multiplayer & Skip Intros

The Steam version of Dungeon Siege has disabled multiplayer and only uses some very low resolutions in the game options.

Specifying Launch Options

  1. In your Steam Game Library, find the game, right click it and click Properties.
  2. Click the "Set launch options..." button.
  3. You can enter the following possible options. Leave a space between each command.
    • Skip Intro Logos:
    • Custom Width and Height: (Change to your desired resolution but leave in "bpp=32")
      width=1920 height=1080 bpp=32
    • Boot into Multiplayer menu: (This also skips intros.)
    • Play in a window:
  • Example of use: width=1920 height=1080 bpp=32 zonematch=true
  • When specifying a high resolution, the game will warn you that it is not supported before playing. You can click OK and ignore this.
  • Once you come out of the multiplayer menu, you will need to restart the game to get back to it.

Playing Multiplayer

  1. Install and setup a Hamachi network.
  2. Enable the command above to have the game boot into the multiplayer menu straight away.
  3. Run the game.
  4. From the menu, click the Network option. You should be able to host and join other games from here.
