Widescreen resolution[edit]

Game defaults fullscreen resolution to match desktop resolution and windowed to 960x540. Game runs fine even with lower end machines but some users may prefer to change this and developer has acknowledged this.[1]
If you experience flickering when in fullscreen mode, you may need to change the Screen.FullscreenSize setting to your resolution instead of desktop.
Set resolution manually[citation needed]
  1. Run and quit the game so that settings.xml is created.
  2. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  3. Edit settings.xml.
  4. Edit these values
<Setting Key="Screen.FullscreenSize" Value="desktop" /> <!-- Fullscreen resolution -->
<Setting Key="Screen.WindowSize" Value="960;540" /> <!-- Windowed resolution -->

desktop makes fullscreen resolution to match your desktop resolution, otherwise use X;Y e.g. 1920;1080

Borderless fullscreen windowed[edit]

Set borderless[citation needed]
  1. Run and quit the game so that settings.xml is created.
  2. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  3. Edit settings.xml.
  4. Change existing values to:
<Setting Key="Screen.Borderless" Value="1"/>
<Setting Key="Screen.WindowSize" Value="1920;1080"/> <!-- your resolution -->
<Setting Key="Screen.Fullscreen" Value="0"/>
<Setting Key="Screen.WindowResizable" Value="0"/>
