Does the resolution patch not work on the Steam version?
I just bought this game because it was half off on the Steam sale; however, the resolution patch doesn't seem to work on the Steam version, as Steam's DRM throws a hissy fit because the patch alters the game's .exe file, and refuses to let me launch the game. Does anyone know a way around this, or is there just no way to use the resolution patch for the Steam version?

Also, the game only seems to run in windowed mode; when I try to set it to fullscreen it jumps back to windowed mode instantly. Is anyone else having this problem?

The problem is that steam checks kingpin.exe and says it's invalided, so it doesn't work with steam or steam need to fix it :/
You could install the 1.21 patch and overwrite kingpin.exe and it should work.

I got it to work by applying the 1.21 patch. It now launches through Steam in 1920x1080.

Are there any special instructions for installing 1.21?
