    Running PR in Window Mode??

    I know this is possible, and have done it before, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to make the shortcut to run PR in window mode...

    This will make the tedious task of watching BFR files much easier..

    Could someone please help me with the shortcut..

    ***********************************

    Edit..

    just answered my own question..

    Change the fullscreen 1 to fullscreen 0

    You need to right click the launch button for the game and select properties. Then you adjust...
    Im at work now and i dont remember by heart, but it might give you enough information. Will check for you when i come out of work. It is possible.

    Re: Running PR in Window Mode??

    I still cant move the window around the screen, so I changed the resolution in the copy of my shortcut to 800x600 so I could at least have access to part of my screen watching the BFR in order to see something at the very end of the match

    To play PR in a window, right click your PR shortcut. In the Target section, change "+ fullscreen 1" to "+ fullscreen 0" You will get a windowed version of the game.

    for the resolution enter:

    +szx 800 +szy 600


    or whatever number you like, no need to change it in the settings menu

    Just for people that don't know, window mode (next to bfR uses) is very useful when you experiences crashes. If you play in windowed mode you get an error report which you don't get in fullscreen.

    Re: Running PR in Window Mode??

    Im trying to set the new version to window mode and it doesnt have the "fullscreen" in the target line. Not sure I want to just start adding lines to it and maybe ruin something. Any ideas?

    right after the pr.exe in your target line put a space then +fullscreen 0 then a space before whatever comes after it.

    I had the same problem with 2142 when running in windowed mode. The easiest way to move the window is to alt-tab out and right-click on the BF2 app in the task bar and select "Move" from the menu, then drag the widow to where you need it. You could do the same thing on title bar in the application window as well (At least in Vista).
