Just purchased the game and in the options there is no support for 1920x1200 resolution. The largest resolution available is for 16:10 is 1280x800. This leave a huge amount of black space around the the screen.

Is there any way, through a config file for example, to force a resolution of 1920x1200?

Thanks in advance!

Hello geronimosan,

You sure can force a higher resolution in the .cfg located in your MyFolders repertory.

The game doesn't fully support it, so you will have some minor non-critical display issues.

Keep in mind that the term "resolution" is not really well chosen, as it only changes the size of the display window. (not your screen resolution, nor the resolution of the game itself either)

It can be useful on some extra-sized maps, but I won't recommand it : most of the maps are too small for these resolutions and you will have the same black spaces - except they will probably be more ugly. :-)

Sincerely,
The Polar Bear.

Well that's a bit poor then.. considering 1920x1200/1080 are the new standard resolutions. Hope you seriously reconsider this "aspect" of your development for future projects.. Indie game or not, it's something that puts people off..

your statement isn't really accurate. I'm sure gamers like bigger screens, but we are the minority. The average family probably has little use for a 23" screen.

What about the average gamer?


Also, I would argue that a good game should adapt to the user and their screen resolution, and not force anything.



The beauty of games is their ability to give us freedom and choice, why not put in the extra effort to realize that?

I'm sure he meant the standard for PC enthusiasts, not in general. Well, even in general really. Most, if not all new monitors these days are at least 1600x900.
