Game resolution is doing wierd...
I just bought and downloaded the game. But when i start it in windowed the size of the game itself is good but the window doesnt really fit in my screen so i can't see some information that is needed to play this game. And when i do it in fullscreen it will go all small and i cant read what's going on in the game... I've tried doing the 640x480 but that didn't work out well... Any suggestions?

I'm having the same problem. I've only got a monitor that goes up to 1024x768 and it makes it really hard on my eyes to play the game. They should really think about patching it to put in multiple resolutions instead of this small full-screen with Black Borders option

PROBLEM 1 There's a black border around the screen.
SOLUTION This is normal. Papers, Please is a fixed-resolution pixel-art game. The supported resolutions are 570x320, 1140x640, and 1710x960. The game picks the largest possible resolution to fit in the current window and fills the remaining border with black.

So this game won't run on my 1080p 120hz monitor?
Was just about to buy this as well.

no, it will run. What Druidz mean is that those are the resolutions that the game will play at because of it's fixed size. It will detect your resolution, then adjust itself accordingly.

@OP, have you tried checking/unchecking windowed mode?

Ahh, ok. Thanks for reply PsydeFX. Thought it weird that only those resolutions would work.

Works ok at 1680x1050.

I am having a simliar issue. It seems that for some reason when I transferred my Operating System to windows 10, the resolution for the game somehow got smaller. I can't seem to enlarge it to fill the screen like it used to. I have tried both windowed and fullscreen and it is impossibly tiny now.

Any way we can select the resolution we would like to use please?

Thank you

If the game is larger than your screen, try going to your Papers Please folder (My Computer/Local Disk (C:)/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/PapersPlease) and right click on the application. Click on properties. Then, go to the compatibility tab and click on "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". It should make the screen be the right size.
