if I adjust the resolution, it tells me it will kick in the next time I start up the game.
But it doesn't. I still have large black bars on the sides of my screen, even though the resolution is increased. If I make the resolution really large, then the resolution immediately resets to the lowest one.
The only way I can make it work at the proper resolution is to se the proper resolution, then hibernate my laptop with the game still running and then reopen it. THEN it will display the right resolution.
