Quick Fix: Titanfall Resolution Out of Range / Black Screen

This fix is a little out of scope for the blog, but I wanted to share this fix to a frustrating issue that I haven’t seen listed as solved anywhere else.  I was running into issues when launching the game.  My computer would simply display an error message that was saying that the resolution was out of range.  Frustratingly, when I tabbed out of the game, I could see everything fine and even navigate to the resolution options where I would select windowed, but the game wouldn’t save the resolution changes.

It’s attempting to push the boundaries for what is possible for a DCCG with mechanics difficult or impossible to replicate in physical form. However, these same mechanics make it difficult for new and veteran players alike to understand all of the nuances of Solforge’s strategy, so I have made this guide of Solforge new player strategy tips.

Solforge Forgewatch Invitational Top 8 Statistics

Solforge

Curiously following the Solforge Forgewatch Invitational, I decided to calculate some statistics about the Top 8’s card choices and deck types. I found the results rather interesting and some of them concerning. Important note: These numbers come from a small sample size (one tournament, eight players), are for a developing game with many new cards recently added, and are calculated with quick and dirty math. Thus, the math below is more useful for observing trends (Uterra is really popular!) rather than exact calculations (Deathweaver had 20.3% more representation than it should have!). With that being said, let’s get on with it!
