Trouble With Screen

Postby Der Fuhrer Richtofen » Mon Oct 19, 2015 5:16 pm

Hello, Der Fuhrer Richtofen here, I would like to address an issue that has just started to plague me. I have been forced to revert to a windowed screen in my DEFCON Game, while it has been set to it's maximum settings, the screen of DEFCON appears to be out of proportions on my computer, which causes an issue that interferes with this gameplay, I would appreciate whatever help could be given at the moment, I am currently operating on an Dell: Inspiron 15, 7000 Series.

Hi,
did you play with the ingame options for resolution and windowed mode?
Those options can also be changed by editing preferences.txt file. It might allow you to set the values arbitrarily, like (your screen width) x (screen height - taskbar size - window decoration).
I dont know where you can find it exactly but it should be next to your authkey file, just use the file search to locate them.

Yes, I have played the Ingame Options for Resolution, but the problem is that the screen remains entirely out of proportions, when playing with max settings, my screen is still out of proportions.
