Can't play game on new notebook
« on: September 29, 2011, 05:21:03 PM »

I've got a new notebook PC win7/64 but it's resolution is 1300x768 and the game fails on startup.

I can't change the resolution of the game to anything other than 1280x960 so am I out of luck???

Thanks,
Jim

I'm not one of the developers, but I'll try to help you.

You can change the resolution of the game by running winsetup.exe and choosing different filters. The available resolutions are:
1- 640x400 filter: none
2- 1280x800 filters: 2x nearest-neighbour & 2x anti-aliasing
3- 1920x1200 filter: 3x anti-aliasing
4- 2560x1600 filters: 4x nearest-neighbour & 4x anti-aliasing

If none of these work, click on the option "Run in a window instead of Full-screen" and apply the filter that looks better on your computer. The game should run fine inside a window. Have you tried changing your screen resolution, too?

got it - it was the nomenclature on the video resolutions that I didn't understand...

Thanks!!
