Windowed Mode Problem (Solved!) // macOS Sierra 10.12.5

Post by conjo » June 17th, 2017, 12:40 pm

Hey everyone,

So I was very happy to find a download for macOS today. Yes, I still have a shitty ass MacBook Pro but I am happy I can play again. Only issue I'm having now is that when I alt + tab or want to play in windowed mode, I cannot. The screen gets stuck and disappears somewhere in the corner where I can only see half.

Any other macOS user experiencing the same problem? Are there any solutions to this issue (apart from installing Windows)? :mrgreen:

Thanks!

I have a mac and it's the same for me. You can't play windowed and you can't copy/paste stats. I just play full screen mode.

Ps: macs are awesome!

The league right now is egdlx (basically egdl without bps). The next draft is next Sunday.

And yeah there has definitely been a difference since Steve Jobs died it seems to be more money > cutting edge.

That hurts me. MacOS is going uphill whilst Windows has been damage limitation since Vista. In terms of hardware, yes the Macbook Pro is a bit behind, I'm still using my one from 2013, just simply upgraded the RAM and SSD, but my iMac is as good spec as I'll ever need.

PS.
Link to download for mac? I can't find one that works....

I'm pretty sure that has and always will be a problem for Mac users.

Taunt, no I did not know. :D

And Gaz, I actually solved the issue last night!

For all macOS users: on the zone screen you have to put the resolution to smaller than the screen that you are using (perhaps try the smallest one first) and make sure that the windowed mode is ticked. This way you will simply have a window open and it will not bug when you want to play. :)

TheCript> sup?
Fc> you sure you didn't mistype and you actually wanted to type 14?

I can play on windows/linux/windows and I find that windowed mode works best for non windows systems. with that said, I should prob uninstall it from osx/linux since it's the only reason for me to use Wine.
