and modify the value FullScreen=true to FullScreen=false

I fixed the screen size, which didn't do anything, then I found the "fullscreen to false" part, and it solved my problem.

Please make this a sticky or add this info to the known problems/fixes page.

UPDATE: the latest patch reset this, and the old fix doesn't work anymore. HOWEVER... alt+enter toggles fullscreen off and on, and using it got me to character selection so I could manually change the settings on the bottom left.

They really need to add this stuff into the FAQ. This screen resolution reset thing is becoming frequent, and some people don't have the luxury of their monitor telling them that the problem is a resolution one (they just get a black screen).
