Does anyone know how I can get DAoC to run in windowed mode? I hate the fact that it can only run full screen and as I was reading the Star Wars Galaxies FAQ, one of the questions was something about whether SWG will run in full screen only or not. Their response was that while it may reduce the chance of 3rd party programs being run, they won't force full screen only because any determined hacker can make it run windowed anyways. So I figure there's gotta be a way to make DAoC run windowed.
Don’t know if this will work for DAOC but would be worth a try. This is for Diablo II, it took me awhile to find so post back whether it works or not.
How can I run Diablo II in a window?
PC users, simply create a shortcut to Diablo II. Right click on the shortcut, select "Properties" and add -w at the end of the Target. (Example: Target: "C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -w) Mac users can press command+M to switch between windowed and full-screen mode.
nope, didn't work. i just read some interviews with the developers too and they said they purposely made it so when you alt-tab and tried to task switch, it would shut down the game. i now know there is a program out there because a guildmate of mine has it, that make it run in window but i would still be curious as to how it makes it run in a window instead of full screen.
Dam. O-well DAOC sux anywise. I played it for about 5 months before I gave it up. Way too time consuming. They just kept nurfing the EXP to the point of grouping with people just a few levels different killed the EXP. Soloing was even more mind numbing fun The game was just way too much of a grind. Definitely not worth the 10 bucks a month.
