Utility suggestion

the other day i was looking around the SWBF2 options and i saw that there isn'T an option for windowed mode. i tried the start menu key, but the only thing that worked was alt+ctrl+del. So i was wondering if it was possible to make a utility that opens SWBF2 in windowed mode...

Im gonna get criticized on this one

Use the command switches on startup:
/win -tells the game to be in windowed mode
/resolution 800 600 -tells the game which resolution size to use

how do you do that? do you edit a file or what

you need to edit the shortcut's target. My shortcut target looks like:
D:\games\Win2003\SWBF2\GameData\BattlefrontII.exe /win /resolution 800 600

You would have a different path for where you installed the game, but everything after GameData... can be the same.

You can also use /nointro to remove the intro screens.

By the way does this work on all PC games?
