Hi, it seems i cant change game resolution. It doesn't matter if im 1640x1640 or 1980x 1980 or even 3200x3200. The game will allways look like 640x480.

Does it look zoomed in? Zoomed in Fix

Or does it look low res? If so, what engine are you using to run the game. It also looks like you don't know how resolutions work. Unless you have a square monitor then you would not put 1080x1080. 1080p on a 16:9 monitor would be 1920x1080.

It looks extremely low res. Like the lowest possible. I gave prime example with those stats.. And now that told me. I can put 1920x1080 in game since im on 16:9. However i still wont get full screen. My game will have black side and will be 640x480... Its just that the game in meniu shows that i changed my resolution but in reality its the same always..

Make sure that your monitor is actually 1920 x 1080. Being just 16:9 isn't enough, it could be some other, but similar resolution like 1280 x 720.
Make sure that you actually entered 1920 x 1080, these exact numbers. Not 1921 x 1080, not 1920 x 1070, not anything else. Mistyping even one digit may cause problems.
The point is, you must set a resolution that precisely matches a physical resolution of your monitor, not completely random numbers like 1640x1640 or 1980x 1980 or even 3200x3200, not even close estimates like 1921 x 1080.

Does it look like this:

?
If it does, open Windows technical FAQ/troubleshooting guide and scroll to "Issue: Mouse is acting weird, movement of cursor on the screen doesn't match mouse movement. Image is cropped, you cannot see right and bottom sides."
Otherwise, upload a screenshot to this thread.
