Every once in a great while, my game will open in a window instead of opening and adjusting to the monitor's display (like it  usually does). When I try to change the settings in-game (Run in 480x860, etc..) it won't even adjust to that size and go back to what it thinks is the default size, the play in  a window size.

Anybody know how to fix this?

No, though I might mention that I personally greatly prefer running it in a window.

Why is that?

i kinda liked it running full screen, without the task bar at the bottom and the.. buttons at the top. It was easier to see too..

When it's a window, it's always the right resolution, you can make it whatever size you want, and you can watch MST3K or write papers at the same time.

Shouldn't you just be able to Alt+Enter it?
That was a joke.

Well, that would be handy, but since all I do is play the game when I play..

Alt+Enter seemed to have no affect on the window.

When I maximize the window, more of the game area shows, but the game itself doesn't resize with the window (does that make sense?) That would work great if the window weren't so small to begin with (thus making the game small as well..)

Here are a couple of pictures.


This is the default window that opens with the game. (The one that opens every once in a great while..)



This is what it looks like when I maximize (with the game size remaining size as the default window, seen above)

I apologize in advance for this off-topic reply, but your wallpaper was a Mario Party blast from the past.

That's ok. Here's a full picture of it to derail the thread further. :)

As long as we're derailing, someone might as well get a picture of an exploding rollercoaster here.

Fun fact: If you place a character on an elevated patch of land, lower the land so they begin to drop and then quickly raise it again beneath their feet, they'll fall through the ground and into a bottomless abyss.

And I'm pretty sure that doesn't affect your park rating at all, unlike drowning people or crashing roller coasters.
