I accidentally changed my resolution to 1600 * 1200 i think, and i can't see the controls anymore because the borders cut off the controls. Since the the options menu is cut off, i can't change the resolution again. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it on steam but it doesn't work any ideas?

Are you talking about Gratuitous Tank Battles or Gratuitous Space Battles
The solution works for either game, but i thought i should check.

Anywho, This should work with the Steam installation

Navigate to \my documents\games\GratuitousTankBattles\
Within that folder should be prefs.ini

When you open the file it will look something like this

Code: Select all

width = 1600
height = 1200
windowed = 0
sound_channels = 512

Edit the file so it looks something like this

Code: Select all

width = 1024
height = 768
windowed = 1
sound_channels = 512

Run GTB again
It will run the game in a windowed mode and you can access the menu again to change the resolution.
