config file?

Hi
could anyone please tell me where the config file for this game is located, because when I start the game, my monitor turns black, because it doesn't support the widescreen resolution. So I need the config file to change the starting resolution. I think the file might be in the folder "My Documents\My Games", but I only found a player1.sav file there yet, probably because I couldn't start the game successfully. Maybe someone could find the file and post its content, that would be very nice.
greetings

I haven't found it yet...although, for what it's worth, I just bought the full game and the two problems I was having (having the full game in the my games library along with the demo and the screen res not staying at 1080p) have vanished... (it's definitely not in SteamApps though...)

It seems that player1.sav contains the settings too. I haven't really tried to figure the file out, but it so happens that the resolution is the last thing in the file. It's a "binary" (non-text) file, but if you've got a hex editor, you can change the resolution by modifying that file.

I don't know if the size of the file is always the same, but on my system it's currently 1496 bytes. The resolution is in two 4-byte (16-bit) integers at the very end of the file, starting at offset 1488 (or byte 1489). Or, I suppose it could be two 2-byte (8-bit) integers with two unused bytes in between them. Same results either way I suppose (unless you've got a really huge resolution ).

In my case, those two 4-byte sets are 00 08 00 00 and 80 04 00 00, which translate to 2048 and 1152 (my resolution). I used a hex editor to change those to 00 04 00 00 and 00 03 00 00 for 1024x768, and when I restarted the game and checked the settings in the game, it was running at 1024x768, so that confirmed that those bytes do contain the resolution, and they can be changed outside of the game.

The usual warnings apply if you're going to start editing game files manually, especially non-text ones. You should make a backup copy of player1.sav first, in case something goes horribly wrong.


FWIW, there doesn't seem to be any configuration information in "steamapps\common\the undergarden". I've played the game today and when I searched there for any files modified in the last 2 days, the only file Windows found was an install script (which, for some reason, seems to be modified whenever I play the game).
