Windowed Mode

  • Hi all,


    perhaps this is useful for somebody:


    I've found that Aerofly FS2 runs very well in windowed mode. You can even fold it down, let it fly and surf in the net.

    And there are no issues with the graphics when I unfold it on my machine. It just pops up. ^^


    To stop the full screen mode simply change the entry at the top of the main.mcf in c:\users\documents\aerofly fs2

    from "true" to "false".


    Happy flying

    Or just use the in game option in the graphics settings... It's in the resolution selection, just press left or right and you will see "windowed mode" as an option. No need to manually edit any files.

  • This answers something I've been meaning to ask as I use Gadwin app to capture screenshots but it can't work with AFS2 in full screen. This sounds good.

    Oh oh, didn't see this. This solution is, of course, preferable.

    But anyway, it works very well in windowed mode. I like it.
