[Solved] Windowed mode?
Does it exist? I couldn't find it in the launcher, and on my new widescreen monitor the game looks very stretched... rolling makes me nauseous now.  :ick:

Just run the game in 1680x1050, it shouldn't stretch. At least mine doesn't. Let me look at my settings.

In the launcher, go to the Features tab > List type drop-down > Dev Tool, and windowed mode should be third from the top.

Widescreen resolutions are available in the Video tab, BTW.

Also make sure you're using 3.6.10 - widescreen support was fixed by this point.
STRONGTEA. Why can't the x86 be sane?

The highest resolution in the launcher's drop-down box is 1280x1024, and my monitor's native resolution is 1920x1200. Also I'm using the 12/1/09 nightly build.

I tried re-downloading the launcher, nothing, and I just updated the build I was using today. The download took quite a while and I'm about to go to sleep, so I'm not going to try re-downloading that right now.

No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

I realize that your problem has been solved, but I am curious about your configuration, because in looking at the code, the launcher should detect all resolutions.

Do you have multiple monitors connected?
If so, are they the same size?
If not, what is the native resolution of the other(s)?
What is/are your desktop resolution(s)?
