I followed your advice simovitch, and I did not have the success that I had hoped, but thank you for the suggestion. I welcome any ideas that you have.
To get full screen I need to toggle windowed mode. But then the game runs real slow. Even when I toggle full screen, and the game only occupies the middle of the screen, it still runs real slow. It keeps pausing as it loads, saying not responding, but it does load eventually. Now I have tried options within the game to change the computer cores, but it never saves the settings, and when I restart the game it always is back to using all cores. Now I have gotten the game to run pretty fast, where it loads up quickly and runs fairly smoothly, without any not responding messages, but it was not full screen, and it was hard to see. Plus now I don't remember what settings I used to get it to run fast, but I do remember it was just using the regular startup menu.
So my ultimate goals is to get the game to run in full screen, and to run fast as it can. I am really hoping for any help here.
