I'm using a 22" widescreen monitor and would like to run Resurrection windowed for best appearance, but I am unable to find any config files or an option in the preferences to do this. Is it possible?

SW's newer games won't run in a window. Sorry. :( I mean, you could force it to run in a window by running it in a virtual machine that runs in a window, like Parallels Workstation (Parallels Desktop on a Mac, or PearPC if you want a Mac virtual machine), but that seems like a lot of effort for little gain.

Hey, are you the same The Lone Badger from SA?

Ah well, that sounds like too much work. Thanks for the prompt help.

Uh, when playing, go to the file menu. Go to preferences and you should be able to figure it out from there.

This game uses an old engine (sort of). So this new game is (sort of) old.

N:R is quite capable of running in windowed mode. (Actual window for OS X, space in the center of the screen for Windows).
