Halps! I've hosed myself!
« on: March 10, 2013, 04:19:28 PM »
Playing around with the resolutions, I set the resolution to something that my monitor doesn't support, and the screen goes black (I have a really old monitor).  Is there any way to change it manually to get myself out of this pickle without reinstalling?

Look in your install's RuntimeData folder, at the settings.dat file.  There's probably a few lines in there talking about resolution (probably one for fullscreen and one for windowed), and editing those manually shouldn't be too difficult.  Probably better to back up a copy of that file before editing it though.

Let us know how it goes :)

Yep, that's what I was looking for.  Thanks for the quick response Keith!
