Hi, first Fantastic game.

Second, I tried to play the game for the first time today, but can't get it on 1 screen.... the game stretches out for 6048x1080 ..... and isn't the best way to play the game lol (Eyefinity)

I tried to make a shortcut with the "-window" command but nope doesn't work.

Any help? :/

thanks .

Hi there,

You will need to set your game resolution manually by editing the preferences file. You can find this in the Prison Architect save folder:

On Windows 7 or Vista:
c:\users\your-username\appdata\local\introversion\prison architect\

On Windows XP:
c:\documents and settings\your-username\local settings\application data\introversion\prison architect\

On Mac OS X:
/Users/your-username/Library/Application Support/Prison Architect/
**Note that the Library folder is hidden by default on Lion and above. Use the Go->Go To Folder command**

In the file preferences.txt you'll find settings for screen width, screen height, and windowed mode. Try a resolution such as 1280 x 800 windowed and you should get a window that fits on a single screen.

this helped me out to make the screen the right size, the only problem now is that the task-bar covers up all the options along bottom of the screen so i cant press any of them. any way to solve this?

We're working on an options menu and should have one out by Alpha 7 or 8.
