Open Game and Manual side by side - 1/28/2012 10:49:04 PM

Is there are way to open BFTB and the manual side by side on the screen? When I open the game I choose "Match current screen resolution" which for me is 1920x1080 Landscape and the game opens fine, but it takes up the whole screen. I can minimize it but I want to have it take up approx 75% of the screen and have the manual open for the other 25% so I can use the manual while playing. I have had the game for awhile but I have only played it a few times. Now that I have the HTTR expansion I really want to get into it, but I don't like having to minimize the game and maximize the manual all the time.
Any suggestions?

Don't think it would be possible since the game does not support window mode. You can probably alt-tab between the game and the manual, but I know that is not what you want. Might require printing out the manual, which could cost you a bit.

Or you could buy a cheap secondary screen if your graphic card allows it. I use an old 19" which have the ability to turn 90 degrees. Its really great for reading pdf's while playing...
