Off-Center Screen
« on: September 13, 2019, 09:07:59 PM »

Whenever I start up the game, everything is in the bottom-left of the screen. On 3840x2160(my monitor's native resolution), fullscreen displays the game significantly larger than it should be, and even starting without fullscreen means the window is the right size, but off-center and immovable(that part may be intentional though). Other resolutions don't mess up in quite the same ways either. On 2560x1600 there were black bars on either side taking up a third of the screen apiece and cutting off large chunks of the menu, while 2560x1440 was similar to 3840x2160, but the bottom-left corner was cut off instead. For some reason, it displayed perfectly on a tv with a wonky resolution that almost no other game accomodated.

Hi - sorry about the trouble! That sounds very odd.

I'd recommend running the game in fullscreen mode, at half your native resolution - so, 1920x1080. If that displays in a corner of the screen, see this thread for a probably solution:

Also, making sure your graphics drivers are up to date may be worth a shot.
