ScreenMode.txt in the game's root directory. You can also check .\Resources\Interface\ for further adjustments like font sizes.

Does ScreenMode still work? I thought I'd changed that ... or maybe I'm thinking of the font. Or CloneMaster.

I think I should probably go back to bed at this point...

Actually i never tried anything newer then 1.29(waiting for something complete), so i dunno. I just assumed that nothing was changed in this part of the game. Are there a menu for this in latest versions? And if it's in the menu then what's the point in asking how to change the window size?

I just tried it and it works. So changing "false" to "true" gives the fullscreen mode  :)

yes it works.

In my opinion a bigger window resize gives  better quality for the pictures. But  you shouldn't change the window ratio 4:3.

If you want 16:9 (Widescreen) you'll have to edit more then just the Screenmode.txt in the main folder. Though it is possible just most of the buttons stretch out or part of the text on them gets cut off. Which for me is kind of an annoyance...but possible.
