In the game, in settings, I switched to a higher resolution and the screen is black. How do I revert to my original 1024 x 768 setting? I can't see anything.

 

I tried looking in prefs.xml but didn't find anything there to edit.

 

Thanks!

 

**Edit

 

Okay, I deleted the pref.xml found by reading this

 

"

How can I change the window resolution of the game?

Delete your preferences.xml file and restart the game.

If you have deleted the preferences.xml file and the issue still persists (the resolution is insufficient to display the game interface), with the game closed, edit the “preferences.xml”, that can be found by pressing 'Windows Key + R' and entering / %Appdata%/wargaming.net/WorldOfTanks"

 

except I typed in %Appdata%/wargaming.net and found the WorldOfAirplanes folder (whatever). I saved and deleted the xml file. I can now delete the saved file since I will create the prefs from scratch.

 

Problem solved.

Go back into settings and under graphics, undo what you did and set back to 1024x768.  If you can't see anything to reset, contact support.

Actually, I posted the fix in an edit to my post. No need to contact support. Thanks for the help.
