Default Re: Explorer issue with latest patch.

And it is all nice and cuddly-friendly with other Windows applications being alt-tabbed to then.

Andy I believe my native resolution is makes the game screen too tiny for me (also zooming too tight pixelate's too much for my taste).

I initially thought a script to check for, and start if false, explorer upon exit might be the answer but that may just be over engineering the issue (considering SP4ever's fix). Win 7 users have a lot of choices when it comes to naming the install directory/drive if the current solution depends on that. It hasn't stopped me though, throughly enjoying it. Great job Andy and Don.
In which case - right click on the desktop, select screen properties, and choose a lower supported resolution to play the game in. The game will use the current screen resolution. Then reverse the process afterwards. A couple of clicks, but it saves all the Windows vista/7 nastiness with dealing with the aero interface needing to be killed in full-screen modes.

I do need reading glasses, but found the game screens perfectly readable on my 1080p wide-screen monitor 1920 by 1080 or such. However I gave it away since my XP box will only run it at 30Hz refresh at native resolution (probably since it only had a VGA interface, not HDMI) - which was tiresome.
