Best resolution for this game?
What resolution was the game meant to be played in?
What do you guys find works best?
I have a 16:9 monitor and on 1920x1080 the menus are just to small for me.

I play at 1152x684. There is a font enlargement patch, which can help at higher resolutions.

Larger fonts for high resolutions

I think it was meant to be played at 800x600 resolutions (it was the default iirc)
At higher resolutions the problem is not as much the fonts but everything becomes much smaller.
At 1024x768 it looks nice but the character and the objects in the world are very small, a bit strainy for the eyes.

You have to take into consideration 3 things (when approaching the visibility aspect):
1. Your monitor size.
2. The resolution you pick.
3. The distance to your monitor.

Considering you don't use a TV you might leave out the third point.
I for one have a 27,5" computer monitor and play the game at 1920x1200. The only problems I encounter are hardly readable prizes in barter menus (which demand a closer look). Aside from that there's nothing troublesome for me.
(Using the Alt key shows objects lying around, so you won't miss them.)

However, you also asked what the most rational setup would be. I'd say test the resolutions with the following thing in mind: Your ingame viewing distance. It might be confusing seeing (a lot) further ahead than you can spot enemies. Maybe try 1366×768 for instance.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much, you have been very helpful :)

Just bought, 1280x720 is best for my 24" monitor.

At 1920x1080 everything is too small.

resolution is subjective.

The issue for me is no matter what res I put it in it is close to 800x450

and my screen resolution is 3200x1800. most games I play on 16:9 and that flops to fit my screen perfectly. yeterday when i installed my game I put it to 16:9 and it worked perfectly. now I turn on my game and the 16:9 turns into 800x450 and the only resolution that works is my 3200x1800. but that resolution makes my FPS go to 9. and in 16:9 i had FPS of 30 consistently.

Run the configuration tool again (in the Steam library right click Divine Divinity and select Configure), and set the desired resolution. You can also manually edit the config.div file in a text editor to set the resolution.

In the install folder (..\SteamApps\common\divine_divinity) try right clicking the div.exe file, select Properties, switch to the Compatibility tab and check off the options to run as administrator and disable display scaling on high DPI settings. Does that help?

I only have a 1366x768 but I've been using 800x600 so I can see a little better (and also to quell instability which isn't working so well)
