Just as the title states, whats the best way to expose current settings like resolution to my classes? (I know this might have been asked, but I couldn't find anything)

I was thinking of the service-locator design pattern, but I am unsure, as I read that it can be abused easily.( I mean it might not fit this particular use-case )

Comedy "just make them global" option. –  Tetrad Jul 26 '13 at 16:56
You're right, I guess I am just complicating things. Please post that as an answer(perhaps with more reasoning) and I'll accept it. –  akaltar Jul 26 '13 at 17:04
I bet a search on Stackoverflow would answer this, since it's not specifically gamedev related. –  Byte56 Jul 26 '13 at 17:25

Just make them global until you determine that it's a detriment to your system.

Don't add complexity unless you're getting some benefit out of it.
