Any way to force Window Mode? - 8/13/2017 3:49:57 AM

It's just really inconvenient to have this fullscreen. I don't care if it's not officially supported there's got to be a way to make this run in a window even if it's borderless.

Thanks in advance!

My first post so sorry if there are any errors.

Yes, I run the game in windowed mode.

You need to create a text file. Call it- windows.txt

My settings in the text file are:


Place the text file in the main directory and change height and width to suit.

A windows.txt file was added via patch to the first two games in the series but not sure if it was added to Barb.

You will have to scroll with arrow keys. If you want to use wasd, I suggest using Autohotkey.

My settings for the Autohotkey script are:


Don't delete the blurb that is already written in the file. Just put these after it.

Hope you get it working as all the games play great windowed.

Jonjo is correct. The windows.txt file shoud be present in the same directory as the exe.

Keep in mind however that Barbarossa in non-windowed mode is still a window, but without borders and fullscreen, so alt-Tab should work like a charm. (there is also a hide button in the top right of the screen)

Best wishes,
