It most certainly does work. Just follow the instructions in the manual in how to run the game, and install borderless gaming, you have to add the correct executable to borderless gaming, then reload the game and give it a few seconds and then whala your off and running in full screen. It’s just works flawlessly and seamlessly.

From your posts it sounds like your running windows and hiding the task bar and if your read the manual and the posts on the forum you’ll understand that is a no-no.

It also sounds Ike your adding the game settings to borderless gaming and not the game.

And we added a check on auto-hide that asks if you want to try it if it finds auto-hide on, that is there for the 1% or so whose video driver (or whatever) will happily co-exist with windowed mode and auto-hide. Those few folks are in the "hens teeth" category of rareness, but the pop-up dialogue box was added for these few.

Been using the experimental exe since May, and here is some interesting (?) screenshots from some of my scenario playtesting.

After a severe illness I am back and amazed at what I've forgotten. I'm trying to download and install this experimental patch on a purchased copy upgraded to the most recent versions. When I get to unzipping I get a message that says "the program can't start WINVFX8.dll is missing." The it tells me to reinstall the program. Are they referring to the game or the Winzip app?

I don't speak computer much but I've played the game since the original SP. Any advice would be appreciated.

I just checked. This experimental EXE is supplied as a zip file, not an installer.

The error you get will be given if you extracted the game exe supplied to some random place and double clicked on it. None of the support files (maps, DLLs OOBS, etc) will be there of course!.

Follow the instructions given by Don in post #1 of this thread to install, and you will be fine.

1) Have a working copy of the game, patched and up to date
2) Rename the game exe in there as described in post 1, if desired
3) Unzip the zip file, ensuring that the extraction path points to the game main folder (easiest way - firstly copy the zip to the folder and then use the "extract here" command)

If you extracted the experimental EXE to your game the timestamp for the new EXE in your main winSPWW2 folder will be 2018-05-15 and if it is and this copy of the game was already patched to ver 11 it should run. Normally a "WINVFX8.dll is missing" message only occurs when it's run from a folder with out all the game .dlls ( there should be 34 other DLL's in the main winSPWW2 folder along with the EXE)
