Unfortunately the game only supports 1024x768 from the in-game menu
We can manually set the resolution ourselves as long as its a 3:4 ratio
Launch the game at least one time
Nativate to:Open HP.iniCode:/home/username/Documents/Harry Potter/
Update the WxH resolutions in both of these sections:
You can set the games resolution as high as 1600x1200 and 32-bit color
Fullscreen - Set your Linux Desktop to 1600x1200 before launching
Harry Potter the Scorcerer's Stone played really well on my GeForce GTX 950. It should run on just about any laptop since it's an older game. It was nice that 1600x1200 was supported, but had to be adjusted manually.
