Resolution and Scaling[edit]

The game's graphics don't scale according to resolution but are 1:1 pixels, this means with higher resolution you can see more and everything is much smaller. This means with some setups, especially smaller display sizes or playing further away from screen, it's better to play game with lower than native resolution.
Playing under native resolution means display or GPU tries to upscale image. With pixel art graphics this makes game look blurry.

Widescreen resolution[edit]

The game offers a resolution and screen mode selection on first start-up, and in-game via 'Change res' option (hotkey F1).
Game has been updated so that if resolution was incorrect you can cancel with Esc and menu is accessible even with first level. If something goes wrong you can press F2 to Safe mode which selects lowest resolution in windowed mode or edit resolution manually.
Edit resolution in Resolution.txt[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file location.
  2. Open Resolution.txt.
  3. First line is horizontal resolution, second line is vertical resolution, third line toggles fullscreen where 0=windowed, 1=fullscreen:

Taskbar overlays window[edit]

Alt+Tab works flawlessly with fullscreen mode.[2]
Use Borderless Windowed[citation needed]
Borderless Windowed can be used in conjunction with windowed mode to hide the taskbar if it is overlaying the game window.
