Hi! sorry for the weird command, but based on gameplay video I have seen for some reason the game seems zoomed in, or at least, not displaying the full window, when I run it and I can't seem to find any resolution options, closest is the 'force windowed mode' on command line parameters,and even in a window, it refuses to display the full screen, it's not major, but it i sannoying I can't see the full window. Any potential help or solutions you can offer?
