Right click on the game SHORTCUT, choose properties.

You should see a shortcut line with the path to the game exectuable, something like:

"C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\uqm.exe"

You put these commands AFTER the quotes, like so:

"C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\uqm.exe" -f -o -r 1024x768

In case you are interested, I'll post my video info.

ASUS AGP-V6800 DDR  (basically a Geforce 256 64mb DDR)
Detonator drivers 43.45 (latest from nvidia Mar 27th nonWHQL)
DirectX 9.0A

I just tried every combo with the display depth. First I was doing them like this:

-f -o -r 1024x768 -d 16
-f -o -r 1024x768 -d 24
-f -o -r 1024x768 -d 32

It would still go full screen for a second, and then would come back to windows and give me the game in a 1024x768 window.

Then I tried just the fullscreen command + color depth:

-f -d 16
-f -d 24
-f -d 32

All of these go fullscreen briefly, then back to windows, and then the game starts in a window, but a small window, I'd say the 640x480 size.  

I can live with it the way it is, but I thought I'd give the details in case you have any interest in looking into it, or if other people have the problem, etc.

I dunno, must be my video card or something. It's pretty old.  The way I have it now, it's basically giving me a 1024x768 window, but I can live with it this way.

Thanks though.

I got it working using:

-f -o -r 1024x768    

My desktop is 1024x768, so the window takes up the whole screen.  Is that how the fullscreen works, or should I be able to get a real, fullscreen display?
