windowed mode wont work


Starting XI
i cant use windowed mode, it wont let me, telling my system does not support it.

ive got a pretty new laptop, its got like a wide screen. ive tried on all possible screen resolutions and it still wont work.

is it a problem with the skin> i am using just the normal si one

what can i do?

How do you go about forcing it into windowed mode? Put "-windowed" at the end of the shortcut target, so it looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\fm.exe" -windowed

(or wherever you installed FM)

If it can't force it that way, then I'm not sure about it. What graphics chipset are you using in the laptop?

I needed both of them on my laptop.

"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\fm.exe" -small_screen -windowed

Thanks mate.

small_screen & windowed were both needed in the target for the shortcut.

solving all my problems.
