Avadon is one of the latest Humble Indie Bundle games but I'm having real problems changing the resolution. It just pops up and there are no options to alter it or switch it to windowed mode from fullscreen.

Is there any way I can change the res?

After first run a new file called ~/.local/share/Avadon/Avadon.ini will be generated. You can edit this to change the game settings. Here's what the stock version looks like:


So just play around with screenwidth, screenheight and fullscreen.

In order for the game to pay attention to this, the option Resolution and Window Size must be set to Ask at Startup in the in-game settings.

How do I get into ".local" ? I see only "local". – user115991 Dec 21 '12 at 12:25
@Drowz0r A dot in front of something makes it hidden so either show hidden files (Control+H) or just run gedit ~/.local/share/Avadon/Avadon.ini and it'll open it up. You'll need to have run Avadon in the past though or the directory and config won't exist. – Oli Dec 21 '12 at 13:48
