patch 1.06 can no longer set resolution

Mac Technical Support
Hi, guys, i don't why this happened, before 1.04. it can be set 1920*1080 as my desktop resolution, but after 1.06. it becomes a painfully 800*600, and this is the only option resolution in menu. pls help me. i'm in 800*600 over 2 weeks already.
You might want to try editing the D3Prefs.txt file and setting the resolution manually. It may have been set incorrectly or corrupted somehow.

The file is located in the following directory:

/Users/AccountName/Library/Application Support/Blizzard/Diablo III/

You can open the file with TextEdit, found in your /Applications folder.

The following lines are what you want to change:

DisplayModeWidth "1920"
DisplayModeHeight "1080"

Mine are as shown. Yours probably read as "800" and "600" respectively. You can edit this by changing the number inside the quotes to 1920 and 1080 as shown in my two lines. Make sure to keep the quotes or else the setting will not be seen.
