    Unhappy [V8.1 - Startup menu] List of avaialble screen resolutions is empty

    List of available screen resolutions is empty. I still can start a game but it runs in rediculously small resolution, because of that, UI elements overlapping each other and small text is impossible to read.

    Is it possible to manually specify a resolution from a shortcut or some config file?

    I get this as well, the text are really small that you cant read it

    Weird, I've had a few crashes, but it does bring the resolution screen up. It does seem to pause a lot, both before that and sometimes when it switches screens but it seems to work. Which version are you running, 'play' or 'debug'? I've yet to see a difference with either.

    I've tried both, same result. My original screen resolution is a bit weird 1440x900 - it's an old laptop with Mobile Intel 965 Express card, maybe it's somehow related.

    That's the same resolution I'm using without issue (so far) on a NVidia GTX 260m on a laptop.

    Then original resolution of the screen might not be a source of problem.

    To an extent the problems with this are beyond our control. The display settings are drawn from the engine and the engine owners have never responded to any emails I sent them (I sent another one last week). I might pop into my work, where I'm technically still employed, and give them a ring at some point - it's an international phone call so it's not going to be cheap...

    Could you add an argument to the shortcut of the game in order to force a specific resolution? Something like "-resolution 800x600". This could at least be a work-around if you don't get an answer to your query from the engine people.

    It would need to be a feature of the engine, for that to work.

    I'd suggest this could be a display driver issue, first and foremost?

    My resolution list is full of all kinds of weird resolutions like 1050x1680. When I try to run it everything, including the cursor, is displayed sideways. It even goes fullscreen when I check windowed. The only resolution that seems to work is 1024x1280, but it's too small to read the text.
