Hello

Does anyone know if there is a way to run EoC in a 800 by 600 window??

I have only one display screen, and would like to play EoC at the same time as waiting for people to come online. Write a few e-mails whilst on the longer autopilot missions ;o)) You know what I mean!

Does anyone know of a way?

Thank you yet again for your time
Martin:)

I think you can set it to windowed mode from the options screen. Or you can edit the flux.ini file manually.
change
full_screen = 1
to
full_screen = 0

It is not ideal, because the game stops the moment you select any other window. But it works for watching for people to come online.

Thanks again

Couldn't see it in the graphics options, but sure enough changeing the flux.ini worked a treat.
Now i can hit a few transport ships while i wait for people to come online. Will leave the longer missions for when i know no-one is comeing online.

GrandpaTrout deserves a Star medal for his knowleadge and quick response time.

You made me a Happy Man again

Funny thing is, windows mode seems to be more stable then full-screen. BCM/UC was the same way. =P

that kind of thing tends to happen when the developers run in windowed mode. They find and fix the bugs they encounter, and miss the rest.
