Any plans to add the ability to change the monitor's resolution from in game?

I know Stencyl is largely targeted at mobile development, but since we have the ability to publish to Windows I think the ability to change the fullscreen resolution is sorely missing.

It is a pretty big deal... Almost every PC game I've ever played has the option of changing resolutions. I've started looking at Game Maker Studio 2 just because of this limitation.

Can't even feign interest, huh?.. Okay, I guess YoYo Games get my money, then.

Resolution switching is supported in the next release of Stencyl, which is currently only available to subscribers but will have a public release soon.

Sorry I was rude... I'm a bit of a messed up unit lately. Shouldn't be taking my issues out here. Really glad to know this feature is being implemented. I wasn't sure whether to subscribe or not but that seals the deal. I'll subscribe.

I was talking to the devs earlier and switching monitor resolutions actually isn't being supported. Thought I'd mention it in case it's really a deal-breaker for you, although I think the rest of the differences between Stencyl and other programs outweigh this one feature.

The new feature is that you'll be able to change the scale and resolution of your game (but not your monitor) to different sizes at runtime which will at least let the player be able to change the size of the game's window in windowed mode.

Oh yeah, that's a good distinction. I assumed the request here was for changing the game's resolution, but if you meant the monitor, that's not planned.

Resolution switching officially has blocks now in the latest private builds, so marking this as resolved.
