hello, I do not know how to set the resolution of the screen I render to. In the process of creating the window I do not set resolution nowhere so where is it set? I have this feeling it is set implicitly somewhere but I want to be able to set the resolution of my screen. All I know to set is size of window .

The resolution depends on the size of the viewport, which is set to window size initially. AFAIK you can't set a resolution different to the window/viewport size when rendering to the front/back buffer. You can, however, set the resolution of render targets and draw them to the viewport.

Why do you want to set a different resolution, anyway?
