Netbook Play - Changing Resolution to Make Everything Fit!

2 posts in this topic



Is there a way I can edit the *ini or maybe even an ingame menu where I can change the resolution of the game?


I can only fit about 66% of the screen on my netbook monitor at once!

Add the line




to the [PREFERENCES] section of your Alpha Centauri.ini file (and delete any lines that begin with video mode=). If that doesn't work, make sure that you're editing the "real" .ini file. On some systems, you'll have a "bare bones" ini file in the main SMAC folder, but the "real" ini file is in some location such as


C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri


where the exact path name depends on where you installed the game.
