I just got the game and the top of my screen is cut off. I have a 1366x768 resolution display. I cannot adjust window size. Any help appreciated.

Is there any way to set the screen resolution? I am also getting screen clipping issues and I also can't find where to make it full screen? I am running at 1920 x 1080

https://github.com/Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming/releases (free) or https://store.steampowered.com/app/388080/Borderless_Gaming/ (paid) has been used by some to make WitE full screen

Thank you, will try it. Not a fan of expensive games not being able to work properly without any extra effort needed. This should be fixed.

Try tweaking your resolution before and after loading the game. I have double 1920/1080's and it's fine without third party.

What resolution do I need to change my desktop to in order for the game to work properly? Surely this can be patched to resize for any full screen resolution?

Works properly for me with the same resolution without resorting to any extra sofetware, just Windows 10.

Drives me nuts, just can't find the reason. Updated my graphics card drivers, most of my other games work no problem. Both War in the East and War in the West will not display properly. Annoying.

Just had another look, how do I get War in the East to go fullscreen?

In War in the West, as on the screenshot - the game in windowed mode seems to only clip a little of the left edge (the M on the MAP INFORMATION tab is slightly clipped). How much more is clipped that I can't see or don't know about?

However in War in the East I can't get it out of windowed mode to go full screen - so the menu looks like this:

As you can see in the previous post I can't even see the full menu. The game screen looks like this:

Clipped at the top of the screen and no way to make it full screen???

Can anyone tell me how much is clipped, is there a status bar or something at the bottom?

You have maybe half a cm clipped. Have you tried changing desktop resolution as I said?

It looks like your font is too large. Here's what mine looks like






Can you post an image of the WitE Properties/compatibility tab and DPI setting in the tab.

Right click on the exe and select properties to do it.

Wow, you seem to have cracked it - turns out it has something to do with scaling in the display options. If I set the screen scaling to 100% is displays properly but at 150% it resizes all the fonts and everything and throws out the display. Thank you to everyone concerned problem seems to have been that all along. Of course now that the scaling is set to 100% I might need some glasses to actually read any of the text but that is my problem and something I can't blame on the game.
