well i discoverd that my both problems are caused by a high resolution cuz the game is kinda old.

and i cant play on full screed at 1024x768 my screen is at 1366x768 so all i need is a way to play the game at a windowed mode at 1024x768.

when i use alt+enter i get a window mode at 640x480 and cant minimize

please someone help

you couldtell your graphics card to scale/not scale as appropriate.

nvidia at least has the ability to 'scale' the display i.e. choose what to do when running at a lower resolution than the screen displays natively.

under nvida control panel it is on adjust desktop size and position.

i'm assuming that they have the same ability, seems that it should be basic functionality to me, scount around the catalyst software to see what options there are.
