Solved: 3 Years, 9 Months, 1 Week ago 2012 15' Macbook Pro Retina Windows 7 Display/Aspect Ratio Issue

Hello I am having a lot of trouble figuring out what resolution to select in the video options of Amnesia the dark descent. I have a 2012 15' Macbook Pro Retina running native Boot Camp Windows 7 Pro with a 2880 x 1800 resolution with a 1GB Nvida GeForce GT 650M . I am running Amnesia the dark descent through Steam. I have tried several of the avaliable resolutions and aspect ratios with no luck thus far. Here is a list of my computers supported resolutions:

1440 by 900 (native), 1280 by 800, 1152 by
720, 1024 by 640, and 800 by 500 pixels at 16:10 aspect ratio; 1024 by
768, 800 by 600, and 640 by 480 pixels at 4:3 aspect ratio; 1024 by 768,
800 by 600, and 640 by 480 pixels at 4:3 aspect ratio stretched; 720 by
480 pixels at 3:2 aspect ratio; 720 by 480 pixels at 3:2 aspect ratio
stretched.

Thanks for any help,

I have this same problem, but I'm running Amnesia natively on Mac OSX( I have the same computer as you). I've tried every single resolution, as well as the native 1440 by 900. The screen is either completely off center, or about 4 times as big as my mac's screen.

Make sure that the nvidia graphics card is used and not the intelhd chip. Possibly this can be forced in the control panel for the graphics or in the power saving settings.

Huh, worked like a charm. Thanks! But I thought that Amnesia couldn't even run on the Intel chips? Also, for anyone wondering, I used gfxCardStatus to force the Nivida card to run.
