Monitor not supporting resolution - How to change 5 Years, 11 Months ago  
Found my old dusty CD, installed, downloaded HD patch, but my HDTV does not support all resolutions, i.e. 1024x768, it support off course 1920x1080.

Anyways game goes to full screen when I launch, but HDTV does not support whatever resolution your game defaults to. How can I change screen resolution, BEFORE the game starts, like in an "ini" file?

A config files lives in the default folder for Windows Vista, 7 and 8 -

C:\Users\Darren\Documents\Space Colony

If you delete this file and then run the game this should help to solve this problem.

Thanks for the advice, however that did not work. Still starts with a blank (black) screen as my HDTV does not support whatever resolution game starts with as a default. I can hear the music fine

It is really a shame developers still in this day and age are not realizing that assumption is the mother of all mistakes.

This Windows game should start in a window, with the main menu and a button to go to settings, instead of going to a SET IN STONE resolution and color depth!

I'd say hook it up to a regular monitor and configurate it for a resolution your HDTV supports, also remember, Space Colony is old by today's standards. HDTVs didn't exist back then.
