Thanks for reporting the problem.

There is a way to get back to the default settings.

The settings for Blackvoxel are stored in a directory called "Blackvoxel" in the "My document" directory.

In this directory is a file called "Settings_Hardware.dat". It's where hardware settings for Blackvoxel are stored.

You can delete this file. And the next time you will launch Blackvoxel, the default settings will be used. The file will be created again when you go to the settings in Blackvoxel and save to exit.

Alternatively, you can edit it with a text editor and set your hardware resolution to something you want.

If you play fullscreen, it is important to set the resolution matching your LCD native resolution.

Many users want to use windowed mode for using manual at the same time. In this case, set some resolution inferior to the LCD and unset the "full screen" setting.
