and it had absolutely no effect on the game. It still gave me that error. Surely the resolution setting isn't hardcoded into the exe! Why is that file even there? I deleted it and the game still launched! I also tried values of 600x800 and 1200x1920 for the resolution. If that's not the config file, then where is it? Isn't there some config file I can edit to change the resolution?
Rhetorical question for the devs: Why is the game attempting to run at 800x600 instead of using my current desktop resolution? Other new games do the latter. If I could get into the game in the first place, I'm sure I could change it to 3860x1920. I tried launching it in landscape mode, but that only lets me choose the landscape mode resolutions in-game, so I can't set it properly for normal operation. I tried choosing windowed mode, but that de-activates as soon as I switch back to portrait mode.
EDIT: I also just looked up another thing that can be done to attempt to fix the problem, which is editing the videomode value in %AppData%\Local\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2012\live\offline\player1.cxl, but I've tried a bunch of values and it didn't work. I mean, I wouldn't expect the standard values to work, but I would expect it to say "Failed to create D3D device: unable to find requested mode (1280x720@60)" instead of 800x600, for example, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the game properly.
