Hi guys.
Just installed, d.loaded patch and updated.
Using WIN 10 on an HP Envy with a 4k monitor.
Boot screen and opening menus are not fully displayed and I cannot scroll or get to the resolution system pref screen [assuming there is one] to change resolution to allow the full screen mode/windowed mode etc.
Ideas please?

Have you configured your switch lines for your executable file yet?

In your target line in your desktop shortcut, put the following switches on the end, and see what happens:

-wd -skipVideo -deepColor -dd_sw -cpu2 -pxf1872-pyf1053 -archive -altFont -autosave

Note that this makes it work on my system with a 1920/1080 monitor, in a big window. No idea if it is the right combination for your system.

You may need to adjust the pxf and pyf for monitor size. if you want to play full screen mode, then replace -wd with -fd, and delete the pxf/pyf switches.

Also note that the intro and menu screens will be at the default size, it will jump out to full size on loading the scenario/save file.

Most important

You need to type in the switches so you get the little short dash, and not the longer version (or at least the dashes).

No not the master menu shortcut -

You should have a shortcut that runs the game exe, only.

IF not, right click on the game exe file, create a direct shortcut, move it to your desk-top and go from there.
