== Configuration ==

If you can't change resolution ingame, use this registry key:

WINEPREFIX=/winegames/giants wine regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PlanetMoon\Giants\IDs\
Keys: VideoWidth, VideoHeight, VideoDepth

== Issues ==

Cancelling the Intro doesn't work. On my resolution (1680x1050) the intro pictures had thin black vertical lines. Gaming works without issues.
