Problem with Fullscreen and Resolutions
« on: February 19, 2019, 08:20:39 pm »
Greetings.
I have loaded this game first time and installed it. I run Win 10 Pro 64Bit. I use a GTX 1080 and a Monitor with native Resolution 3840x2160. I would Play the game in Fullscreen. My native Resoultion do not exist in the Menu, so i tried the lower 16:9 Resolution 1920x1080.
But with activated Fullscreen i habe only a window. It doesn't matter, which Resolution i try, i habe only a Window. 

Then i have found the config.cfg file. Now i have tried, to Manual edit the file with my native and other sinful Resolutions. But the game have overwritten my changes. Then i tried to edit the file and activated write protection. Then the game ignores my edit and use one of the Standard resolutions. How can i get this game to run in Fullscreen with a 16:9 Resolution?

EDIT:
Sorry i forgot:
Game Version is 2.5.

You could try running the game with these command line parameters:
Code: [Select]
    ufo.exe +set vid_width 3840 +set vid_height 2160 +set vid_mode -1 +set vid_fullscreen 1

It worked for me on a 2.5 which was compiled with SDL2. Hope it helps you too.

Note that most of our screens are designed to be 1024x768, they will be scaled up to the screen, but they will have empty space on the sides.

Is it possible to eliminate the empty space on the sides somehow?
