Default Sudden Problems With Windowed Mode

Hi guys,

I came back to play after a 3 week hiatus and all of a sudden I have a problem with the windowed mode, not only in WWII but even in MBT (see attached file).

This happens whatever resolution I try,

I could still play in full screen mode with no problems at all.

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much!

Looks like someone has set the Windows taskbar "auto hide" to on while you were away? (Seeing as there is no evidence of it at the bottom of that screenshot).

The taskbar auto hide must be off, as we detail in the Game Guide.

Yes, that's that...

Sorry, I didn't checked because I always let the taskbar auto hide off and I don't notice it, just killed my wife for that...

:-)

Thank you!

Both games will now check for auto-hide and if found to be ON, an error message will be displayed and the game will abort right away. (Guess who found a useful snippet of code on the interwebs! );

That's the message that will appear when the next patch is release.

As I've stated elsewhere, auto-hide has never caused problems for me in windowed mode on Windows XP, 7 or 10 for WINSPWW2 or WINSPMBT. Hopefully this new feature will help out some people who do have this problem. It does unfortunately mean I will not be able to update in the Spring as I don't think its worth the hassle. But if it helps people that's more important than discomfitting one singular user

What we need to figure out is WHY it works for you as you're the only one I know of that runs autohide and the game without trouble

Currently I'm running Windows 10 updated over Windows 7, though OS didn't ever seem to matter previously. I've never had issues with displaying the game, even on full screen. I run my monitor at 1920x1080 and have always had the task bar set to auto-hide, ever since Windows 95.

I'm currently running the latest CD-ROM versions of WINSPWW2 and WINSPMBT and while both are currently modded, I've never had troubles even when running "vanilla." If there's anything more specific I can give you I will, but I haven't a clue what I'm doing "right."

Only thing I can think of is that I have probably more aggressively upgraded my computer, if I am recalling what you've mentioned in the past, Don. But I don't presume anything. I do have a very modern video card if that makes any difference (GTX 970).
