Borderless fullscreen windowed[edit]

Borderless fullscreen windowed can be partially achieved by first setting the game to windowed mode and then using Borderless Gaming. This will give the game a borderless windowed effect, however the game locks the mouse inside the game windows, and therefor not a very viable option.
