In most games it's an option in the Video setting category. If it's not there, then probably not (unless there's something you can type as an extra line parameter).

Yes it can be done very easily but alot of games look horrific in full screen mode.

What game is it?

To make a game windowed that usually only plays fullscreen is a command line thing right movie?

:whistling: Doesn't answer that question.

After a lot of Googling, I found that no, you can't.

UNLESS, you download some file that isn't endorsed by the creators so it's kinda sketchy. Looks like unless you reallllly need it windowed, your stuck in full screen.

EDIT: Some more reading. The file that you need to download to have it windowed is part of an AimbotHack program, so I wouldn't suggest getting it.

Sorry i didnt read your original post correctly.

You can run a windowed game in full screen fairly easily, thats why i said some games look horrific as the resolution isnt good enough.

You wish to run a full screen game in windowed, this is normaly a pretty simple proccess but gunbound is one of the exceptions that need a third part program to do so. This program is highly unstable and also highly illegal (part of a cheat) so i cannot indorse it.

I have a friend who can maybe make you a minimizer for gunbound if that would be any use to you?

what do youmean, a 'minimizer'?


can't you get the same result by pressing the windows button on the keyboard?


EDIT: to be more clear, the windows button that makes the start menu pop up?

I am assuming you got it figured out, but if not.

On your shortcut, right click and select properties, and the target, after the ", add -w for windowed.

Hello aznjockboiX. I tried the advice quoted above from jaxisland and it works.
In addition to all the other posts in this thread:

Always be cautious when running third party applications when they are intended to modify another application's behavior when they aren't release by the creator.
You run the chance of getting infected with malicious software and/or the compromising of any (gaming) accounts.

I hope this helps you.
