Hey, Guys!

Thanks for making the great game!

I screwed up and got the game set on windowed mode, spread across three monitors. It displays only the top of the screen, and I can't get at the little gear in the bottom left corner to fix it. Can I get at the settings menu any other way?

Thanks again!

Silverhood, thank you!

You sorta solved the problem.

The alt + Enter didn't work, but that inspired me to learn a little. Creating a desktop shortcut and adding the tag " -w" (with the space, which is weird) caused it to open in a window, which allowed me to get at the controls and fix it. It also allowed me to move the game to my preferred monitor.

It was only afterwards that my wife looked at me and said "why didn't you just unplug the monitors you didn't want, and restart it?"

Thanks again!

I feel a little stupid, but around here they have a saying; "If it's stupid, and it works...."
