Unable to get back to Initial Resolution (MacBook)

Post by durp » Fri Dec 18, 2015 8:28 pm

I have a Retina 13 inch and was trying to see if I could get the graphics to look a little sharper...

I changed the resolutions a few times and decided it was no better... then found that I could not get back to the original resolution.

Now I only have sub-optimal resolution choices that cap out at 1152x720. (sadpanda)

Hmm... tried switching the "Open in Low Resolution" option, but it does not matter.

Basically, the options list presented within Star Hammer doesn't even have 1400x900 which would allow for a pixel doubled experience. As it is, it is terrible - cannot read text, looks like someone smeared vaseline on my HUD.

Might have to ask for a refund; unplayable like this.

There was another resolution 1280x800 hiding at the bottom, I may have had to be in fullscreen to see it, but it is slightly better than the lower rezzes. I e-mailed support, maybe they will have more info (really would be nice to get to a more Retina friendly rez).

If you hold down the Option key when you start the game, you'll see a dialog that allows you to change resolution before the game loads.

Either 1920x1080, 2560x1600, or 1280x800 would work best.
