Jedi Academy Zoomed in

I'm playing Jedi Academy (from the app store) on a 15inch rMBP.

It has launched fine for the first week or so, now it will only launch in an incredibly zoomed in way so I can only see a fraction of the screen.

Any ideas on what I can do to solve this?

Is there zoom control- keys or mouse scroll?

Nope - can't seem to make mouse scroll or option and +/- keys do anything.

My guess is you have "Automatic Graphics Switching" turned on in your Energy Saver menu within System Preferences.

Basically, your machine is attempting to switch over to the HD4000, which would read at a totally different resolution.

Turn off "AGS", and you should be golden. Let me know how it goes!

Yeah spot on - I've turned on the automatic graphics switching in energy saving preferences and I'm all grand. Thanks for your help

*And* an awesome port that closely followed the PC release.
