Windowed[edit]

Create a .ini file[3]
  1. Create a file named player.ini in the installation folder with the following content:
    800 600 16 0 BaseCMO.cmo
  2. Save the file
  3. Start the game.

Notes

The only value you should ever edit in the ini is the 4th integer (0=windowed mode, 1=full-screen mode). The first three values (Horizontal resolution, vertical resolution, bit depth) are hardcoded so they will be ignored anyway, the last one (name of the main game file) should be left alone.

Notes

  1. SafeDisc retail DRM does not work on Windows 10[1] and is disabled by default on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 when the KB3086255 update is installed.[2]
  2. 2.0 2.1 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>/46500/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (46500) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
