How can I change screen resolution?

Start any scenario, open System Options dialog and click "High" button.

In case only 800x600 is available, close VCMI, download this file which contains the “bonusIcons” and “extraResolutions” repertories. Unzip, and place them in XXX (Windows), YYY (Android), ZZZ (Mac) or ~/.local/share/vcmi/Mods (Linux). Then start any scenario, open System Options dialog and voilà, other resolutions than 800x600 are availables.

Note that you need to restart VCMI for the change to take effect.
