Just bought this game and so far I love it, but I would love to be able to play in windowed mode. I also got screwed into a lower resolution.


On first load the relevant graphics settings were:

resolution: 1920 x 1080

fullscreen: yes


I unchecked the fullscreen box and clicked apply, but nothing happened. I closed the settings, clicked "Save" when prompted, but still nothing. I restarted the game and I was still in fullscreen. I repeated this several times with the exact same results. When I uncheck fullscreen it remains checked until I leave that page, but when I return it is checked.


Next I tried changing the resolution. I opened the dropdown and there were only two options, 1440 x 900 and 1280 x 800. I selected 1440 x 900, unchecked fullscreen, and applied. The resolution was set correctly, but still no fullscreen. Exited, settings and clicked save, fullscreen. Restarted, fullscreen again.


I reopened the game and tried to set my resolution back to 1920 x 1080, but it was not an available option. I changed to the smaller resolution and repeated the same process as above without fullscreen. I changed back to 1440 x 900 successfully, but still not windowed mode and still no 1920 x 1080.


I reloaded the game a few more times but made no progress. The resolution isn't as big of a deal as the windowed mode for me.


I bought the game through GOG and installed using their Galaxy Client.


System settings:

OSX Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46)

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)

2.8 GHz Intel Core i7

16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB

15.4-inch (2880 x 1800)

Hello, celtica.  I'm sorry for your inconvenience.  We have a work around to get your resolution back to 1080p, but be advised that this is not currently a supported resolution on OSX due to a bug with the Unity Engine.  We are currently aware of the issue as other Unity games have experienced the same thing.  We lock the resolution down on OSX as a precautionary measure until the bug with Unity can be fixed.  


Do a search on the forums and you'll find a thread where someone has modified/deleted a file to get back to 1080p.  But as stated above, this is not officially supported by Obsidian.


As for getting it into windowed mode, hit Command+F.
