What do you mean "using windowed mode to fix the problem with spell animations" if there is only the crappy version of windowed mode? Or is there a problem with spell animations that is fixed by the aforementioned crappy windowed mode? Anyway, as long as the game supports alt-tab properly, I guess I'll get by.
The spell animations don't display properly with current video drivers. When hardware acceleration is lowered the animations appear correctly but the pointer leaves a trail. I noticed that the animations appear correctly in windowed mode as well except with a smaller display.
I haven't noticed anything wrong with windowed mode. And I don't know what you meant by fix it.
No locked doors, no windows barred. No more things to make my brain seem SKARD.
