Running Cedega App in Windowed Mode


Hi,

I'm trying to use cedega to run Worms Armageddon. And I've looked high and low for the command line argument to get it to run as just a window on my desktop(and also how to specify the size of this window), because whenever it tries to run fullscreen it crashes. Anyone know?

Thanks
Matt

Nevermind-- I figured it out

Had to modify my config in my transgaming directory. So apparently there isn't just an argument you can pass, oh well. It works and that's all i care about

Under /home/yournamehere/.cedega/Dot TransGaming/ open config in your editor of choice. Scroll down about a quarter of the way until you see the header [x11drv], under this header some ways down there are two lines that look like this:

; Use a desktop window of the given size
;"Desktop" = "1024x768"

-Simply remove the semicolon before desktop (uncomment it) and set the resolution to whatever size you want the window to be. If it's an FPS or some game where you don't want the mouse wandering off that window without alt tabbing out of it, make sure DXGrab (which is a few more lines down) is uncommented and set to "Y"

Also if you're in the newest cedega w/ the nice frontend I believe you can configure a game to be windowed through some fancy menus if you look around.

Hope this helps!

Matt
