forcing fullscreen
« on: August 29, 2004, 09:37:21 am »

OK, I had the game in full screen the day before, but now windows XP seems to pop back to a windowed.  I'm using the -f switch in a full screened command prompt.  Even the alt-enter command doesn't force the game into full screen.  Any other ideas?

FalconMWC's suggestion makes absolutely no sense.

Zathri: What changed in between the time that it worked, and that it didn'twork?

Oh yeah.  I installed a new HP photo printer.  It added some taskbar icons, but even if I disable those processes, it still doesn't work.  That's all right, I just drop the desktop resolution and play windowed.

Maybe reinstalling DirectX would help.

If your computer auto-updates from MS, they recently put SP2 in their feed.  Maybe it's a strange SP2 bug?  :-/
