Mac version - windowed mode? Or change resolution?owen-b11/03/2008 - 06:19


Got the Mac version of this now. Can't understand why to date there's absolutely no fanfare about it's availability, but hey!

Thing is I'm playing on a 24" iMac and it's blatantly stretching the game to fit the screen, which looks horrible. :( A quick scan of the forum suggests there's ways of changing the game resolution but I've yet to see a guide to how to do this, and I also understand it breaks the game doing so. Furthermore I can't see any way of making the Mac version of the game run in a window at the standard resolution (which I also gather breaks some levels of the game).

Any ideas?

owen, dig into the app and you'll find a file called config.txt.  in it, you can set the desired resolution.  also, command-f will toggle fullscreen mode in case you want to play in a window.

Ah, Command-F, thank you!

I noticed right after posting that the Mac fanfare was up on the front page! Damn my slow fingers...
