UQM Resolution

Can you run UQM in a window without the entire resolution of the screen/monitor/display changing?

Thanks in advance,

Frankly but I have no idea what you are asking.
But...

Heres all the resolution info you need from the manual:

-r 320x240       (or --res)
Sets the screen resolution.  Unless --opengl is set, the only valid values are 640x480 and 320x240

-f     (or --fullscreen)
Uses full screen mode.  Pretty straightforward.  Usually good to combine with -r 320x240.

Use -f if you want the game to take up the entire screen, or use -r XXXxYYY if you want to run the game in a window that is bigger.

What I mean is currently, when I start up UQM it changes the resolution to 640x480 and takes up the full screen.

Is there anyway to make it just take up a small window so I can see other things?

I think this post belongs in <Technical Issues>.
Try asking there.
But my experience is no. Try playing -f (fullscreen), the resolution will be set back to your normal windows-resolution when quitting (at least it does so here with me).
If you want a windowed version (-w), your screenresolution must be high enough to display your selected 640x480 pixels.
I do not know if you can select -r 960x720 as resolution.

Ahh, I'm guessing your desktop is set to 640x480, because by default UQM doesn't start with the fullscreen option on.  So just add the flag '-r 320x240'  (see the tech for FAQ on how to do that) and it should only take up 1/4 your screen.

If you are having troubles with all those switches, I'd suggest you atleast try my UQM Loader program:

Or mine, available at
http://www.submedia.net/uqm/
(at the bottom)
It's an executable java archive, so it is cross-platform. Just double-click!
... unless you're on windows, which is too stupid to figure out what to do with it. This can be fixed. Create a shortcut to the jar file, then insert 'java -classpath ' before the existing text, and append ' UQMLauncher' after it. Now you can double-click the shortcut and that will do the job. If you move the jar file, you will have to adjust or replace the shortcut.
