Windowed[edit]

Use this method to force windowed mode.
Game can be played in different sized windows.
Mouse cursor is not restricted to the game window and can move into the desktop.
Forcing windowed mode[2][3]
  1. Open acsetup.cfg with a text editor.
  2. Change the line windowed=0 to windowed=1. This will launch the game in windowed mode.
  3. Now change the line gfxfilter=max to gfxfilter=StdScaleX, where X is a multiplier of the original 320x240. Example: Setting gfxfilter=StdScale2 will launch the game in a 640x480 window. This will limit the size of the window so it won't be larger than your screen.
  4. Save the file and close your text editor.
  5. Run the game.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/370910/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (370910) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
