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.

Glad you got it working.

I have the exact same problem. The easiest workaround is to set the resolution down to 640x480 before you quit the game. Then you're fine the next time you run it. This is annoying, but less time consuming than to edit DisplaySettings.ini every time you want to play the game.
