View Full Version : Windowed mode not working
15th Jul 2011, 9:26 PM
I've tried -w and -window after the shortcut target and it is still opening fullscreen. I have Windows 7.

What's your full target? Paste it here, please.

Here it is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSBin\Sims2EP8.exe

I have the same problem except I amrunning Vista and I do have -w at the. End of the command line. What should I do?

Ok... let's try this again.
If windowed mode isn't working, then there is a problem with your windowed mode target. So please paste your target here with it set up for windowed mode so we can see what the problem is.

If you have problems, write exactly like this in the Target box (of course, I have XP, and different directory of saved games, so I copied what you said above):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSBin\Sims2EP8.exe" -w
After the quotes, write space and then -w. That works for me.
