Widescreen resolution

Get widescreen resolutions or any wanted resolution which is not in the game by default[1]
  1. Open <path-to-game>\Config.sb with a text editor.
  2. Change .SX and .SY to the width and height of your resolution.

Notes

You might still have to mark it as write protected in properties afterwards
If your game crashes restart it should be fine. If it still crashes you'll have to unmark it as writeprotected again and remove any changes you made in Config.sb. For that just use a default resolution like 1024x768.

Notes

  1. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/277450/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (277450) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
