Borderless fullscreen windowed[edit]

The game comes with a configuration setting that says "Run in Fullscreen mode", checked by default. While unchecking this option implies windowed mode, the actual result is the following:

  • The game runs at full desktop resolution, as if it was Borderless Windowed.
  • If it is a widescreen aspect, the game stretches with distortion.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/12470/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (12470) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
