Dragon's Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a seriously demanding game, especially on the CPU front. The PC version has a lot of options and support for different technologies, but for some reason, you can’t make use of downsampling. This is the case in Exoprimal, and Street Fighter 6 as well, but with this guide, you’ll be able to enable DSR in Dragon’s Dogma 2 and increase the sample count for improved image quality.

Enabling DSR in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To enable DSR in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you need to set the resolution of your desktop to your target resolution or something higher. Either this or you can use a tool called AutoActions to automate this process.

By default, the resolution in-game maxes out at your monitor’s highest value. So in my case, I can’t pick anything above 1080p.

Change Desktop Resolution – Manual

  • Make sure DSR (and DLDSR for custom resolutions) is enabled in the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Right-click on your desktop and select Display Settings
Right-click Desktop > Display Settings
Desktop Display Settings
  • Now, scroll down, and under Display resolution, select either your desired resolution or something higher, like 3840×2160 (4K)
Display Settings > Display resolution

  • This will change your desktop resolution, and things will look a bit weird and possibly blurry
  • Launch Dragon’s Dogma 2
  • Now, in Settings, select Graphics, and you’ll see more options next to Screen Resolution


Use AutoActions – Automated

Changing the desktop resolution every time you want to play Dragon’s Dogma 2 can be a bit annoying, which is why I recommend using AutoActions. This is an automation tool that is really useful for games like this.

  • Head over to the following GitHub link, and download the latest release
  • Extract the zip file, and launch AutoActions.exe
  • Now, click on the Profile tab, select Profile 1, and then the + button next to Application started actions
Profiles Tab Auto Actions
Profiles Tab
  • Now, check “Change Resolution”
  • Set the resolution you want the Windows’ resolution to be set to (higher than native). In my case, I set it to 4K (3840×2160).
  • Check “Change refresh rate” if you have something higher than 60 HZ, and set the value below.
  • Press OK
Application Start Actions
Application Start Actions
  • Now, click on the + next to Application closed actions
  • Here, set the values to what you’re using as default, mainly switching to your desktop’s normal native resolution. Here is how I’ve set it according to my 1080p 165hz monitor.

  • Your Profile 1 should look something like this now

  • Now, select the Applications tab, and click the + button. Add the Dragon’s Dogma 2 executable (DD2.exe), which is in the following address

  • Set the Profile to Profile 1 which you just configured
Dragon's Dogma 2 Profile in Dragon's Dogma 2
Dragon’s Dogma 2 Profile in Dragon’s Dogma 2

That’s all you need to do. As long as AutoActions is running in the background, it will automatically switch between resolutions as well as refresh rates when you launch and close Dragon’s Dogma 2.
