Why can't I play this game in windowed mode?

#1_starsnostars_Posted 10/26/2008 4:52:13 PM
I tried adding "-w" to the shortcut filepath and that used to work for me when I had this game running on XP (now I am using 64-bit Vista). Others with Vista can run the game in windowed mode, but why can't I?

Is there another way?

And also I have SimCity 4 Deluxe, if that matters.

I don't have a clue.

But why would you want it in windowed mode anyway?

Oh yeah by the way, I would recommend going to www.simtropolis.com

Its a great fan site with a massive forum a lot bigger and busier than this little thing.

I refer to it regularly

I have two monitors set-up side by side, so if it were in windows mode I could have it full-screen on one monitor and be free to use the other monitor.

Oh I see, very clever.

Did you think about trying simtropolis.com?
