Changed Setting to "fill screen" now doesnt fit

Post Jul 13th '19, 00:14

Hi, just downloaded the marathon series. but i think i broke the launcher. in preferences i changed the setting to "fill the screen" of my 1920 x 1080 display, but now everything is too big and the mouse doesnt line up with functions properly.

is there a .cfg file or something? how do i change the display to 1080p?

There is a preferences file, for future reference. The location depends on your OS: ... references

You can set whatever resolution you want there, pretty much. (I render most of my M2/Infinity films these days in 1440x1080 because the classic HUD, which I use, originally showed up in 4:3, and I want to keep that aspect old-school.) You might want to save a backup just in case you mess something up while manually editing, though, as otherwise the app will overwrite your default preferences. Anyway, hope that helps.

“The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold; we can no longer describe happy man, nor make any celebration of joy.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”
