Default Resolution



Hello :11_blush:


I want to set the screen resolution to fullscreen by default and in something other than 800x600.


How do I make players that open the game for the first time to hop in 1280x720 or 1280x1024..


Both the in game and menu UI look squished and bad in 800x600


[Previews] {All in fullscreen)

There's a huge difference. Plus in 800x600 you get a much smaller camera view.  I don't mind if players change their settings to 800x600 but ew I really don't want it by default.:61_sob:  Also would prefer fullscreen by default, adds a great feel. 


EDIT: I'm pretty sure it's 800x600 by default..? Also, weird 3 last pics didn't embed in

The only way I know of doing this (without modifying the source) is to distribute your game with a .reg file to modify the section of the registry that stores the resolution selected. Though, this could be seen as a shady thing to do since a .reg file could do more than simply set the resolution of the game. I believe it also boots into 800x600 default as some people still use monitors at that resolution. Just a backwards compatibility thing.


You'll be better off just telling people that you recommend changing the resolution if their monitor supports it.
