I'd like to increase the default resolution because it's very small. There's nothing in the options menu, and I checked the folders where it is installed and didn't find any sort of options.ini file that I could hand edit.

Is there any way to do this? I run a dual monitor setup and at the current resolution, it makes my second monitor practically useless.

    Even at 1280x1024 fullscreen, the resolution is horrible. And I don't mean Minecraft blocky; literally poor. Commented May 18, 2011 at 16:48

    It would be nice if you could at least resize the window that it gives you, like in Minecraft

UPDATE: 1.0.3

The game window is now resizeable and you can select your resolution while in full screen mode. WooT!

  • Also after setting fullscreen resolution, you can simple alt+enter it back to a window while retaining your resolution.

As reported by Terraria 1.0.3 changelog it is now possible to change resolution. Window can also be re-sized when playing in windows mode. Great news!

  • The game window is now re-sizable while in windowed mode.
  • Full-screen resolution can now be changed in the options menu.
