Very strange happenings. When I first used Win8.1 none of my CC games ( I nearly have all of them) would even install or even play. Then a young techie from Future Shop said uninstall 8.1 and use 8.0. Everything worked fine on all CC games.I was even able to get the games to play at 1366 X 768 resolution. The other day I decided to finally upgrade to win8.1 after I had to reformat my C drive. Well the game finally downloaded and installed after
seeking out and adding direct x or something; however the screen size remained 800 X 600 despite changing it under options.. It will not allow me to change to larger resolution. Anyone have any suggestions on the fix for this?
Tnaks for your help.

Maybe this. At least on Nvidia, try going into your graphic settings on your pc. Browse to / add the game you are having trouble with and turn OFF everything for that specific game profile. I always do this with the compatibility mode for the cc game and year it came out with OS. Keep in mind if you are running a cc game and change with compatibility mode you will lose your saved game status unless you change it back to the one you started with.
