Game won't go fullscreen.
« on: July 16, 2018, 04:09:03 PM »

When I try to launch the game at anything other than my monitors native 4k it will not go fullscreen. Instead it will take up a portion of the top left of my screen. If anyone knows how to fix this that would be awesome.

Hi - sorry about the trouble!

First, I have to ask just to be sure, you're checking "fullscreen" in the launcher, right? Assuming you are: what operating system are you running?

Also, are your graphics drivers up-to-date? Might be worth updating them to see if it helps.

Thanks for the quick reply, but yes I do have the fullscreen option checked and it does go fullscreen if i run it at the native resolution but the UI is a little small to play comfortably at that resolution. I am using windows 10 and I have a GTX 1080 with the most recent drivers, version 398.36 released on june 26th.

Hmm. Some googling reveals a possible solution:

Right click on the executable, click properties, go to the compatibility tab, and set the option to override DPI scaling behavior to "application".

Can you let me know if that helps? If it doesn't, other options in that section may be worth a shot as well. I'm not on windows 10 so I'm not sure exactly what they'd be.
