Good news indeed.... I wanted to boost those two numbers up high to start then work back to something that worked for you. I figured the sensitivity would be out of line but it was a starting point

They should. My game does not crash and neither does Andy's but I cannot even get FS to run so IDK if it crashes......but as I said FS has not been recommended by us for years. I wanted to get rid of FS altogether once windowed mode was perfected but we decided it was best to leave it in for older machines

Windows 7 uses the 256 colour palette that the full-screen game also uses for its "aero" effects. That is why we introduced the batch file that nukes the windows 7 aero (explorer) in order to allow full-screen play. It works for some windows 7 machines, but it may not be fully stable, or survive future graphic card driver updates, since 256 colour mode is "obsolete" in Microsoft's game plan.

Windowed mode uses the regular windows 32 bit palette, and so it plays properly with other windows applications. You can switch tasks without windows "losing" the 256 colour palette and scrambling it when you return. In windows 7, there is no need to nuke windows explorer, and sometimes having to restart it on exit from the game if the batch file fails to start it.

Full-screen mode is no longer supported - its only there because of the DOS heritage of the game. That mode may work for some folk's combinations of operating system and graphics card, but if so then that is just sheer luck.

I see...I'm not exactly a newbee to this game but I am when it comes to this forum and the online community for this game. I haven't followed much of the developments. I play on and off and check the updates from time to time, that's about it. Thanks again for the help.

Hi there,
I have been experimenting with Borderless Gaming to keep the look of a full screen. Nostalgia....

So far so good, works a treat for me!
Cheers,
Gelainey

Yes I forgot about that.....you may like the way it works and it's featured in a Sticky at the top of the main forum. I have experimented with it and it works well

look for

Sticky: All the benefits of Windowed & Fullscreen mode combined

What exactly do you mean by "a crash"?.

What were you doing at the time?.

.......and what had you been doing before running the game ? It should not be an issue BUT....was the game run right after start up or after it had been on awhile and you had other things running at the same time?

I had nothing else running. The game shut down and went to desktop. The computer had been on a while but no other programs were open.

Strange. I've never had that happen but somethings tickling the back of my brain that someone else had that happen in the past and I think it was related to anti virus running but that's not clear to me.....just a hunch...

Has anyone else had this happen or recall anyone who did ??
