Higher resolutions[edit]

Change value of screenres=[2]

In acsetup.cfg, change the value of screenres= to one of the following to force higher resolutions:
0 = 320x200
1 = 640x400
2 = 1024x768 (not recommended, causes windowboxing and messes with cursor)
3 = 1280x800
4 = 1600x1000
5 = 1920x1200
6 = 2240x1400
7 = 2560x1600
8 = 2880x1800
9 = 3200x2000
10 = 3520x2200
11 = 3840x2400
12 = 4160x2600
13 = 4480x2800
14 = 4800x3000
15 = 5120x3200

Certain textual elements, such as dialogue and action prompts, do not scale to higher resolutions, and as such are smaller on higher resolutions. Try Lossless Scaling instead.
