Anyone know, I've checked all the usual locations and I can't find it. The game is completely vertical minus in every aspect, UI, cutscreens rendering, this means I can't access the ingame menus to change the settings to 1680x1050 windows mode. But I can't find where the current resolution is being stored to manual override it, anyone know where it is?

NVM found it, the demo has a different steam id to the game, demo is 210840, configuration file is in Stream/userdata/%player id%/%steam id%/

But now I'm sorry to say the developers need a bollocking, that is a HEX file NOT an xml file. Files that store play settings should ALWAYS be human readable, perpetually settings like the resolution, if a tech savy player has a problem with a game the first place they will is the configuration file to see if they can fix it. There is never a legitimate reason to stop people editing the games setting from the configuration file to fix there own problems, any sensitive information should be stored separately to the basic settings.

Yup, I cannot play this game. I have an eyefinity Desktop, and when the game starts the UI is outside the scope of my monitors so I cannot change the resolution. I don't feel like hex-editing it or setting myself up to 1 monitor temporarily to fix it.

Tried -window to a shortcut but that doesn't work either. Well hopefully the next game they make is playable...
