For those who can't change the resolution without it crashing.
Whenever I tried to change the resolution in the game it crashed. So after testing a little more I found a way to change the fullscreen resolution without it crashing.

Basically go select windowed mode and apply it to bring the game to a window. Then re-select fullscreen mode and change to the resolution you want before clicking apply. Click apply and it should work.

This is what I did to get the game to the resolution I wanted and I didnt have to change anything in the compatability options for the exe. I'm running windows 7 by the way. Hope this helps!

Thanks. This worked in XP as well.
I changed my resolution and now whenever I try to turn it on it crashes, do you think you could help me with that?

Is this whenever you run the game now after changing the resolution it crashes? Or is it when you want to go back to fullscreen asfter changing the resolution?

Either way try changing the compatability mode to windows xp service pack 3 or 2 and see if that helps. Dunno if that will work but it is worth a shot.

The game itself is highly unstable and I am surprised that this was even released on steam in this state. If I payed more than the dollar I did I would be more♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥at my purchase.

Run the game as administrator
Bag Daddy 2013年1月4日下午6:22 
The game already has administrative permission

In the launch options for the game force it back down to the original resolution by typing -w <horizontal resolution> and -h <vertical resolution>

Ex: -w 800 -h 600

Another thing to try is to force it back to windowed mode by typing -windowed in the launch options as well.

You get to launch options by right-clicking on the game, select properties, and click Set launch options under the general tab.

I believe that error normally pops up when you change a game to a resolution that your video card doesn't support.

Just tried doing that, no luck

Anything that you can think of to fix this? Im at a loss.

Alright, I fixed the original problem, i think. Now I get "Problem checking steam application"

If your OS is windows 7 then go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Bizarre Creations\Geometry Wars Retro Evolved and delete the files that are in there. "UserName" is the name of the account you are logged into. This should reset the configuration to its defaults.

I don't know if this directory changed in windows 8 and if you run windows XP then you would go C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\...

The appdata folder is normally hidden so you will have to enable hidden folders.

Copy the steam.dll file from the steam directory into the geometry wars folder.
