Windowed[edit]

Before making changes to any files, it is advised to save backup copies.

Running Lone Survivor in windowed mode can be accomplished by editing the configuration file found at: <path-to-game>/META-INF/AIR/application.xml Open this file in a text editor and find this section (may occur on lines 71 to 81).

<!-- The window's initial width in pixels. Optional. -->
<!--  <width>640</width> -->

<!-- The window's initial height in pixels. Optional. -->
<!--<height>480</height> -->

<!-- The window's initial x position. Optional. -->
<!-- <x></x> -->

<!-- The window's initial y position. Optional. -->
<!-- <y></y> -->

Change this section to the following:

<!-- The window's initial width in pixels. Optional. -->
<width>640</width>

<!-- The window's initial height in pixels. Optional. -->
<height>480</height>

<!-- The window's initial x position. Optional. -->
<x>0</x>

<!-- The window's initial y position. Optional. -->
<y>0</y>
The numbers may be adjusted to change width, height, and position of the window.
To return to fullscreen mode, revert the code section back to the original.

Notes

  1. When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (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>/209830/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (209830) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    "Despite taking ten months (and at times being a challenging project), I am really happy to give away The Director’s Cut as a 100% FREE update to anyone who has previously purchased the game on Mac or PC previously, in any form, including the Humble Bundle. It’s my way of saying thankyou for enabling me to make games long into the future by supporting the original release."
