Full Screen Problem
Author : eveskylar
Hi, I've purchased the game and played for a couple of days now. At first I was able to change the full screen to window and change it back. But now after playing in window mode for the last 3 days, for some reason I cannot change it to full screen anymore.

So when I press the full screen option, it closes the game and opens on notepad saying something about traceback and this:

"I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
Exception: Could not set video mode."

How do I fix this?

Thank you for your time!

Hello,

The issue is due to your graphics card. Please follow the steps from the FAQ on this website to try and update your graphics card.

If no update is available try different using different renderers. You can choose which one to use by starting the game and then pressing shift+g.

Most likely the last option will work for you.

Hi,

Thank you so much for replying. I have already updated my graphics card, so there were no updates available for me. I then use Shift+g and chose the software option but it also didn't work.

But in the end I managed to make it work by going into the options on the menu page and click 'Reset'. Then when I chose 'Full Screen' it worked. 

I have another question. If I was to uninstall the game and then install it in back again, will I lose all my previous data?

Thank you for your time!

Hello,

Glad to hear you got it to work. No, you will not lose your previous data. All the data is stored outside the game installation inside your AppData folder.
