Hey guys, trying to get back into the game here. I wanna run the game in windowed mode, however it is chopping off the very bottom and top of the screen, top doesn't really matter, the bottom cuts off the factories. This is at a resolution of 2560x1440. I can see everything if I run everything in 1920x1080. Is there an in between that would work? ---note, monitor does not have an in between so I dont think it would be supported. And remember, I wanna run this in -w mode to allow access to a second monitor. Thanks


Yes i edited the toolbar at the bottom so it is hidden.

Readjust the resolution to a bit lower than 2560x1440 if thats your monitors/desktop native resolution.
I suggest you try 2560x1300 for example, afaik you can use any combination you like, even if it is not a common display resolution.

Try what LoBaron suggests, but I had the same problem and couldn't figure it out. You may have to take the -w out and just live with hitting the Windows key alot. Just make sure that only the map is showing and no unit displays etc.. It can be tricky to get the map back and there's only an empty rectangle where the info popup was.

That resolution did not work, screen was really small.

It is not -skipvideo but -skipVideo. It is case sensitive.

You have to use a resolution that your video card will support. I doubt that 2560x1300 is supported.
