From: My Own Private Hell
Incidentally, I'm apparently blind since I don't see where you set DW to run in windowed mode. Could someone please enlighten me?

You have to edit the startup.ini file in the top level of the Distant Worlds home folder. Remove the ' from two lines, see below. Just dont ask what taking the one off hyperspeed does, think it is something to do with the distance the ships travel or somesuch. DW is like an old Moggy Minor car that keeps getting bits bolted on to make it better, hence there are defunct files here and there, like biases.txt, still as the saying goes 'If it aint broke don't fix it', DW isn't broken but it sure is wonky in some areas
'Distant Worlds startup settings
Really needs a button on the secondary screen of the graphics settings under advanced options, but hey, we dont mind, there are so many other things that need a tweak up the compiler in this game this ones a minor.
