    If you're playing in windowed mode your resolution options go from 1920x1080 to the next being 1366x768. This is unacceptable. Being my desktop resolution is 1920x1080 I cannot use 1920x1080 as a windowed resolution as it doesn't fit properly of course. So my next option is 1366x768, while it maintains the proper aspect ratio, it is just too small. Why is there not a 1600x900 option to give a nice large window that fits the desktop well?

    Take a look in this thread, it may help for the PCEA game.

    I'd rather the WGT coding team just be accountable and competent enough to add it as a selectable option, rather than having to turn to a third-party to have the game run as it should.

    Well, considering the likelihood is quite low that WGT will read your post and the even lower likelihood that they'll do anything about it (if they do happen to read it), you might want to consider the advice that was offered. ­čśÇ

    Strayborne, whilst the aforementioned link may help you, thank you Dave, this one is much easier to implement, and doesn't involve using any third party script.

    I would also like one resolution between 1360 and 1920...There is that option Scott mentioned, but its just resizing that 1360 window in different way. Needs actual option in video menu..Some games had 16:10. I know its older standard but its not older than 4:3

    You know what would be great, If we could just drag the screen to resize it

    That would be great Don.


    On the mobile version using an Android Emulator you can do that.

    What really gets me is the Unity engine very well has the capability to implement many resolutions to choose from. I'm a bit of a gamer, and have played many many games made with the Unity engine. To name a few; Cities: Skylines, The Gold Club 2019, Kerbal Space Program, and My Summer Car. Those are just a few right off the top of my head. Every single one of them you can choose from a multitude of resolutions and aspect rations for full screen and windowed mode both. It really shows either a lack of know-how, or a lack of interest in QOL for the end-user by the WGT development team.

    PCEA Resolution Picker 
    for Windows only

    Available HERE as an exe file.

    Available HERE as an ahk file.

    If you have AutoHotkey installed on your computer then get the ahk file, otherwise get the exe file. The ahk file can be edited to customize it, the exe file cannot, other than that they both work the same.

    The file script can be viewed HERE.

    Another advantage of this resolution picker over the in-game resolutions, is that you can change the resolution while you are in a game, you can't do that with the in-game options.

    Instructions :
    Double click the file to run it after downloading.
    If you close the resolution picker and want to re-open it, hit CTRL + r.
    CTRL + x  will exit out of the program.

    EDIT : If there are any resolutions that you would like to see added, just let me know and I can pop them in and re-upload the script. Of course if you have the ahk file, you can add them in yourself.
