Help! Resolution Problem!
Hello, so i've been having a little issue. Everytime I run the game, it starts up in what appears to be the lowest possible resolution. All I see is a extra zoomed in screen. I'm not sure what to do and how to run the game in a mode where i can fix the resolution to match my screen. I'm running it on a mac. Is there any combination of buttons and directions i could press to try and get the resolution to change. For example: Space bar, Escape, Down, Down, Down, Space bar, Down, Down, Space, Space, Escape? You know what i mean!

You need to enter the settings. Hit escape to access the settings.

However, changing your resolution should not change the zoom of anything. It sounds like you have a problem with your system settings, as that is the only thing that would cause that issue.

As I mentioned, the game opens with a very low resolution, to the point where it appears to show me the top left of what should be the entire screen. Therefore, when I click escape to open settings, I cannot see any text. This is why I requested the button-combinations to readjust the resolution.

Can anyone help! Should I reinstall?

Edit resolution in the DisplaySettings.ini

thanks, Andy! I figured this would be the solution, however, I'm running Steam and the game through a Mac OS X and can't seem to find the game's data folders. I checked the location section of the wiki page you sent me, and for a mac, it is blank. Does this actually mean that mac does not store data folders for games through steam??

I tried my harddrive>library>applicationsupport....there is no steam or game folder. I also tried my documents, where I found only one game data belonging to Don't Starve.

search your mac for the steamapps folder.

steamapps\common\psychonauts

The DisplaySettings.ini will be in there.
