Known Issue: Resolution Resizing On Mac OSX
« on: April 16, 2010, 05:48:26 PM »
Please see this thread for the ongoing discussion about this issue.

It's caused by a bug in Unity 3D, and at the moment there is apparently not much we can do about it.  We're basically waiting on Unity 2.7 or 3.0 at this stage.  Thanks for bearing with us on this, our hands are tied, and we're as frustrated by that as you probably are if you're on a Mac and don't like the default resolution of Tidalis on your machine.  But, in the meantime, there is a workaround!

Workaround

There is a "Use In-Game Resolution Settings" checkbox in the settings menu. To set a custom resolution on the Mac, first step is to uncheck this box, then save and close the game.

From then on, it will use whatever screen resolution is configured directly through Unity. To configure that screen resolution, hold the Option key while clicking to open the game. You'll then get a Unity screen that lets you select the resolution you want (and it seems to remember your last choice), and then you can start the game with no issues.

Chris, I think we changed this to prevent any kind of resolution changes on platforms that don't support it (namely, the mac), and that the currently functioning method is to set the resolution before launching the app (by some form of function-clicking the app, iirc) ?

Correct. We can make this non-sticky now, as the game directly has all the needed info at this point.
