I recently had a fiddle around the options for fun on CSS and I noticed the resolution wasn't the same as my desktop. I went to change it but I accidentally put it to 1280x800, whereas my monitor is 1280x1024. Because my monitor doesn't support 1280x800, every time I come to play the game it just comes up with a black screen, so I can't change it back. I tried reinstalling the game but the problem still persists.

I know its an old post un all, but for further reference..

If you do that, just right click o the desktop shortcut / go to properties / go to compatibility / then select run in 640x480. All screen can go that low, then it will give you the chance to get in game and change to a nice working size.

***But dont forget to uncheck the option before launching again..!!
