In other news, here are the support display resolutions for those curious:
  • 1680x1050 
  • 1600x900 
  • 1440x900
  • 1366x768
  • 1360x768
  • 1280x1024
  • 1280x960
  • 1280x800
  • 1280x768
  • 1280x720
  • 1152x864
  • 1024x768
  • 1024x576
 If you need to run the game with a resolution not shown (such as 1400x1050), you can run it with this debug command.
In Steam, right-click the game and select Properties->Set Launch Options. In the command line, set "debugResX 1400 debugResY 1050"
Obviously substitute the proper debugResX or Width that you need and the proper debugResY or Height needed.
You can actually set just about any resolution your graphics card can handle. But bear in the mind the levels were built only up to 1920x180 as the absolute max. If you go into 2560x1600 things may get unpleasant if you start seeing "outside" the game world.

Otherwise, the game looks completely smoking at the higher 1600 resolutions, I hope your card and monitor can handle those! Seems like on average most PC gamers have that covered, based on the Steam computer spec survey. But do people boastfully lie on those? I doubt it. Or at least I hope not.

Some of us definitely do have 2560x1600 monitors. Before switching from a 42" 1920x1080 to a 30" 2560x1600, I was concerned that the size difference would be bothersome. Boy, was that fear gone in about 5 seconds. 1920x1080 pales in comparison to 2560x1600. It has forver changed both my productive and gaming sessions. Being able to see so much code when I program and so much detail when I game, I highly recommend switching to a 2560x1600 monitor if your walllet and video card can handle the upgrade. You will NEVER go back to a lower res monitor.

While I like the game, the resolution settings available (as well as the method for changing them) is awful. I game at 1920x1200, but the way you do rez changes is so painful I couldn't do it from in the game. Please fix that! Have a list of resolutions, let me pick one, THEN set it, don't set it every time I change the value looking for the right one.

A super-hi res monitor sounds awesome!

Yes, we're working on a proper "apply changes" button in the menu for the first update.
