How can i launch TF2 in windowed mode?

#1Chaos_blastaPosted 5/1/2010 5:40:53 PM
every time i start TF2 it goes into fullscreen, and i can't see the mouse pointer while on fullscreen, so i have to change to windowed every time; however, when i launch it again it doesn't save the settings (also doesn't save the advanced settings in video) i want to know if it's possible to launch TF2 windowed or to have my mouse pointer appear in fullscreen

Go into TF2's launch options and choose -windowed -noborder -w (your monitors width) -h (your monitors height) [Ex: -w 1920 -h 1080]

Your cursoe should appear in fullscreen, but i have no idea why that would not be happening. However, launching TF2 windowed is easy. Just go to your library, right-click TF2, click properties, set launch options, and enter -windowed in the field. You can also enter -noborder (separated by a space) to remove the frame.

I'm been doing that ever since I got the game. I run all my games in windowed mode.

i am asking this because i already had another command in launch options (-dxlevel 81 to increase FPS) so i don't know if just inserting a new one will work

When you leave the -dxlevel 81 command in your launch option it will reset your graphic settings EVERY TIME YOU PLAY.

You only need to put it there once and then you can remove it.

Also, when you put the launch options in, they all go on the same line because you only get one line...

while you're at it, add "-novid" to it to skip the intro video.
