I am running Sci Tech graphics on eCS 1.2. I have inadvertently set the resolution for a value heigher than the monitor supports so I am now stuck with a blank screen. Back under warp 3-4 I could have done a floppy boot to a maintenence console that had a resolution reset as one of it's options. The 1.2 CD maintenence console doesn't seem to have that option. Is there an easy way out that I am missing or do I have to re-install? I have a working version of eCS 1.1 installed on another drive of the same computer so I can get to everything but I can't seem to find anything to reset.
Thanks

I'm not 100%, but I guess you could just press the Alt-F1 during boot up (when you see the eCS in a tiny white box upper left) and then choose the archive previous to your resolution switch. Of course it presupposes that the archive funktion is activated.

That worked....thanks. It's been so long since I shot myself in that particular foot that I'de forgotten about the Alt/F1 sequence. Now I just have to re-install Snap which should be no bigie.
