In 11 you could edit 2 values in the registry to change to any custom resolution.
I would very much like to know if this can be done in 14 as well.
Window snapping is a good temporary fix, but changing to custom resolutions is also my goal.

This question made me curious and I had a few minutes to kill at work so I looked into it with the help of processmon from MS and my favorite hexeditor.
In FFXIV, resolutions are not stored in the registry. It looks like most if not all of the settings defined using ffxivconfig.exe are stored a config.sys file in documents\mygames\ffxiv
The file is hex and I've been able to determine that addresses 14,15 & 18,19 are what change when the resolution is changed. I haven't been able to determine if the file is storing predefined resolution settings of say type 1, type 2, etc. or if it is a real number.
The resolutions themselves do not match what is written in either hex or decimal so some playing around will need to be done to define the exact values. For instance:
1920 x 1200 : H-80/07,B0/04 D-128/7,176/4
1920 x 1080 : H-80/07,38/04 D-128/7,56/4
1600 x 1200 : H-40/06,B0/04 D-64/6,176/4
1440 x 900 : H-A0/05,84/03 D-160/5,132/3
Since I'm at work, I don't have my fob so I can't set a custom entry and test. I'll have to try when I get home in an hour or two. There looks like there is some discernible pattern so I'm hoping its possible to set custom resolutions.
