Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Install and run Nuvie. Go to Video Options and set game style to either "new style" or "original+ full map", then exit the game.

Edit nuvie.cfg to set your resolution; on Windows this is located in the installation folder.

screen_width and screen_height determine the base resolution, game_width and game_height determine the gameplay area within the output resolution and scale_factor determines the multiplier used for determining the final output resolution; if scaling is 2 (the default) set both resolution options to half of the output resolution you want, e.g. for a final output resolution of 1920x1080 this would be 960 (width) and 540 (height).

Everything maintains the correct aspect ratio. Pre-rendered cutscenes are windowboxed while gameplay fits the resolution used (as long as the game style is set to "new style" or "original+ full map"). The scale_factor multiplier and resolution can be adjusted as needed to make everything bigger while still filling the screen.
