Unplayable because there is no option to adjust screen size.

Question

I spend $40 on this game and it's unplayable. I cant access any buttons on the side of the screen and cant read anything on the top or buttom. And there is no option to adjust the screen size in the settings. How can they miss a feature SO simple? I'm playing on xbox one.

This!

I guarantee you, that you have not checked your TV settings for the right Input setting. 

Unfortunately every TV has a different name for this. Overscan, PC mode, Console Mode, Game mode, 1:1 ... the list goes on. 

I would bet money that you played with a cropped picture for a long time without noticing it.

You might guarantee, but you'd have to pay up. A LOT (most) of cheap TVs don't have this functionality. This is exactly why, as OP says, almost every Xbox game has a setting (it's usually forced) where you set the edges of your screen. If it wasn't necessary, it wouldn't be in like 99% of games.

PS4 playing on a 56" TV. I tried sliding the UI control, but it only had a tiny fraction left to work with. So, it didnt make a noticable difference when I moved it. My setup is playable, but about half of the buttons are off-screen that are on the edge of the UI. I checked my TV for settings. Couldnt find any for resolution. Must be automatic. Its only a few years old. 1080p capable.

FIX FOR PS4: Go to the PS4 settings; Go to Screen and Sound Settings, Go to Screen Size (or something close to that) and adjust. 

Ive never had to use that setting on any game before. But it works perfectly. Changing TV screen settings or UI settings had no effect.

What you're listing are the display options. ... to display signals. You need to find input settings, to handle the video signals. Maybe in a different menu. 

But sure, some TV's just don't give you these options. 

Shame ... shame ... shame ...

I've tried all the settings on the tv and in game and nothings worked.

Your TV might have some different modes, ie: theatre, letterbox, widescreen, regular under view in the menu.

Without launching the game, the console itself has some screen setting adjustment in the settings tabs you might have to squeeze it in a bit, I had to do this for my PS4. Try leaving a bit of gap all the way around the screen, then launch the game.

In game, the UI settings mainly changes the size of the Nav ball. I haven't heard of a fix if you are having trouble reading the  apoapsis and periapsis numbers, other than sitting close.

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images displayed on your screen. At higher resolutions, such as 1600 x 1200 pixels, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller so more items can fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, such as 800 x 600 pixels, fewer items fit on the screen, but they appear larger. 

The resolution you can use depends on the resolutions your monitor supports. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768 pixels and can work well at different resolutions. LCD monitors, also called flat-panel displays, and laptop screens often support higher resolutions and work best at a specific resolution. 

The larger the monitor, usually the higher the resolution it supports. Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have. 

To change your screen resolution

  1. Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button 
    The Start button
    , clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution. 
  2. Click the drop-down list next to Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
  3. Click Keep to use the new resolution, or click Revert to go back to the previous resolution.

 

Native resolution

LCD monitors, including laptop screens, typically run best at their native resolution. You don't have to set your monitor to run at this resolution, but it's usually recommended in order to ensure you see the sharpest text and images possible. LCD monitors generally come in two shapes: a standard proportion of width to height of 4:3, or a widescreen ratio of 16:9 or 16:10. A widescreen monitor has both a wider shape and resolution than a standard ratio monitor.

If you're unsure of your monitor's native resolution, check the product manual or go to the manufacturer's website. Here are typical resolutions for some popular screen sizes: 

  • 19-inch screen (standard ratio): 1280 x 1024 pixels
  • 20-inch screen (standard ratio): 1600 x 1200 pixels
  • 22-inch screen (widescreen): 1680 x 1050 pixels
  • 24-inch screen (widescreen): 1900 x 1200 pixels
