    Window Mode - How to make it work!

    Ok.. I'm sick to death of explaining to peple how to make window mode work, so I've decided to create this mini guide.

    I’m guessing that if your window mode doesn’t work – It displays in your clientloader as this;


    Now the reason its not displaying any resolutions for window mode is because your COMPUTER resolution is set too low.

    To change our computer resolution we click;
    Start --> Control panel --> Then Display


    A window will pop up looking like this;


    We now click the tab called ‘Settings’ to change the resolution


    We can see here that the resolution is set to 1024*768 Pixels – This resolution is 1 step too low for windowed mode to work.
    If your maximum resolution is 1024*768 pixels – Unfortunately your computer will not be able to run EU in window mode.

    Any resolution above 1024*768 will allow you to run window mode, to increase the resolution, slide the slide-bar 1 step to the right. When you’ve increased your resolution, click ‘Apply’ – The screen will change, Click ‘Yes’ to keep the new resolution setting. If your computer prompts yo to restart click ‘No’ for now – You’ll end up restarting it sooner or later when you switch it off!


    I have shifted mine to maximum resolution (as seen above)

    Now once your resolution is set, open the EU clientloader again – This time under the window mode tab you will see something like this;

    Select one of the resolutions shown for window mode and click ‘Ok’.

    That’s it! You can now run EU in window mode, Enjoy!
