Super Motherload – How to Fix High DPI Monitor Isses

If you are experiencing Super Motherload being off-center and too big on your high DPI monitor, there is a solution to fix this issue.

The problem stems from the fact that Super Motherload is an older game and does not declare itself as high DPI aware in the executable manifest. As a result, the operating system scales the game, causing it to appear off-center and oversized on high DPI monitors.

Download the following:

Right click -> Save Link As…

And then double-click the downloaded file, and import it into your registry. Feel free to verify the contents of the file before doing so.

Manual Fix

To fix the issue of Super Motherload appearing off-center and too big on high DPI monitors, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the game and select “Manage” and then “Browse local files.”
  2. Right-click either “supermotherloadGL.exe” or “supermotherloadD3D11.exe” depending on which one you use, and select “Properties.”
  3. Click on the “Compatibility” tab and select “Change high DPI settings.”
  4. Check the box next to “High DPI scaling override” and select “Application” from the drop-down menu.
  5. Click “OK” to save the changes.

This should ensure that Super Motherload is scaled correctly on your high DPI monitor and appears centered and properly sized.
