Fullscreen UI misalignment; Windows compatibility settings (display scaling) greyed out

Game mode: Singleplayer
Problem: Bug/Performance
Region: US

The Windows compatibility options in the Properties menu for the game executable are greyed out.

In particular, I am trying to disable display scaling, and I can’t. UI button hitboxes are not where they appear to be on the screen when playing in fullscreen. Normally when I have this problem in other games I just disable display scaling from the Properties menu on the executable and everything is fine, but for some reason these options are disabled for Conan Exiles.

Changing the resolution from 1920x1080 to either 1600x900 or 1680x1050 fixes the problem on the main menu but not for character creation. Because the buttons are so close together during character creation, this issue effectively makes the game unplayable in fullscreen.

On further examination, it seems that the compatibility options are not greyed out for the ConanSandbox_BE.exe executable in the ConanSandbox/Binaries/Win64 folder, but starting the game from this executable directly does not solve the UI alignment problem, even after disabling display scaling.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Boot the game

  2. Mouseover any button

  3. Right click on game executable

  4. Select ‘Properties’

  5. Select ‘Compatibility’ tab
