How to get full screen mode
« on: February 18, 2011, 10:29:34 pm »

Hi, downloaded the latest version but can't get full screen to work.

I am on Windows 7.

Also wish there was mouse support

The option to enable full screen is within the game setup. You just need to switch it on. (It is off by default)
If the game refuses to accept changes, you should try to change it using the command line.
You'll do that by right-clicking a shortcut which you use to run the game, going to "properties" and adding "-f" without quotes to the end of the text line which is written for "Target:"
(just don't delete the rest of the text)
Then, it really SHOULD run in the full screen, i don't see the reason why not. The game's refresh rate is fixed to 60Hz to suit the most (if not all) of existing monitors as long as the resolution is set to 640x480 or above.
Oh, and about the mouse support, I doubt you will ever see it. It' wouldn't actually be practical to use mouse in this game, believe me. If you're not suited to play using keyboard, try gamepad.
Both is good choice once you get used to it.
