Dual Monitor Setup
I have a Dual Monitor Setup and the available graphics options (fulscreen and windowed) just don't do it for me.

Fullscreen: I see it on one screen but can't switch between windows without the game minimizing

Windowed: either the game is too small and fits in the middle of my screen but everything is tiny, or the game is a bit to big and I have to position it exeacly in order to view everything.

what I would like is a Fullscreen (windowed) mode, where it fills one screen but I can still have other windows open on my second monitor.

Just an Idea Big Grin

RE: Dual Monitor Setup
Thanks for this. Are you not able to change the resolution in windowed mode so that it is pretty much full screen? This is how I play it most of the time

if I put it on the only other resolution option I can fill one screen (provided that I am really carefull with my positioning of the blue bar above) but on my other (main) screen I hit the upperside of my screen and then I can't see what is at the bottom. So in that scenario, I find it preferable to lower the resolution and just... squint at the monitor Tongue

While your solution is possible (on one screen)... it just gets annoying after a while, having to position the window as precisely as possible...

(am I making sense here? Huh)

RE: Dual Monitor Setup
What resolutions are you talking about? I presume you get a dropdown with quite a lot?

RE: Dual Monitor Setup
Actually, I just get two options:

Resolution on: 1280x720

Resolution on: 1920x1080

[I could use my other screen where I have a little less trouble with the size, but I need that one for work related programs that I have to keep my eye on]

Edit: flickr links didn't quite work right
PS: images link to Flickr for a larger size
