"Cannot Display this Video Mode"

When you run Space Colony for the first time you may just see a black screen or the error message "Cannot Display this Video Mode".  This often happens if you have previously installed an old version of Space Colony.

To reset the resolution the game is running in...

  1. Run the Space Colony launcher from Steam
  2. Hold SHIFT and click on the Play button

Space Colony will now run in 800x600 resolution.  You can now change the resolution in-game through the Settings > Video Options menu.
