Doom,
When Running 1280x720 Windowed mode, it is not possible to select countries, to play the game.
I'm only trying to run in windowed mode, so I can take screen grabs for an AAR.
any suggestions?
regards
A.

Yeah, but my monitor's max vertical pixel count is 768.
I don't see the full window on my little lenovo.
But yes it's strange.
My Desktop resolution is 1366x768 native.



works on this screen.

but not this one...
is there a gui.csv file code I can tweak to get the buttons higher.
Perhaps a format change that places some option buttons along the top, rather than the bottom of the page???

Have you got this resolution available by default in the options menu?

1366x768 is pretty much the only resolution this computer has. (it's a cheap one).
and W.I. games have never been able to screen grab at full screen. (why is that by the way?)

Are you able to run Time of Fury in 1280x720 in windowed mode without issues?

I had scrolling issues with trying to use Windowed Mode so I just switched back to full screen.

Edit: In 1600x900 windowed mode scrolling is ok for me. It can be a bit tricky using the mouse to scroll but the arrow keys work well. 

Re screenshots: I'm guessing that SWE and other W.I. games use DirectX. I'm able to take SWE screenshots with FRAPS but not my other screenshot apps when in full screen mode. FRAPS supports DirectX. In windowed mode I could also use SnagIt 11 to capture screenshots.

No Doom,
Fury and Storm do not work in windowed mode. Seem issue. Dialog box is not centred. Even running storm in lower window resolutions. On other laptops with greater resolutions, from memory, it does work. Will check further...
