Can't change resolution and worse performance than in beta

As the title says, I can't change the resolution, because when I press "apply" or "ok" the screen turns black, so I can't press the "keep the changes" button and, therefor unable to pply the changes. So, when the screen comes back up it still has the old resolution.

And, am I the only one with worse performance in the PC than the one I had in beta...?

Im also having horrible performance problems wich is a bit frustrating because my computer played great during Beta.

Im trying to figure out some tweaks or work arounds but nothing is working.

Bums me out because I payed for early access and cant even play. My early access is going to be wasted on waiting for Hotfixes or trying to figure out how to increase my performance somehow.

Oh and before someone says my computer just sucks... Its way above recomended requirements.

I've seen a lot of people complaining about this in general, I'm also having problems when in beta I ran fine on high settings.

It is not the main problem. We/I are asking about how to change f* resolution if we go black screen so we cannot push ''KEEP SETTINGS'' button. It really makes my fps low because it wants me to play im 1366x1250 or smt like that resolution :/

I found that it was taking a bit of time to cycle, but I was getting the loading screen before it came around to the keep/revert question box. If you're not seeing the loading screen (you say you had a black screen) then perhaps the resolutions you're choosing aren't working for you? It could be refresh rate or something that your monitor doesn't like when you change over, assuming you're running fullscreen (not windowed). Have you tried running it fully windowed and then adjusting the resolution, and then setting it back to fullscreen? Keep in mind that if the resolution is unfriendly to your monitor/video drivers, you might end up with a bad setting that's unworkable.

I have tried all of the above, none of them worked.

Everything worked fine in the beta
