It's been a very long time since I've posted on SWGB Heaven, or even installed on my computer, and I'm pretty sure this question has been asked and answered here already, but there's a LOT of old posts to dig through, so bear with me for asking again. How does one set SWGB:CC to play in a window instead of fullscreen on Windows 8. I accomplished it on AoE2:AoK, the game SWGB's engine is based on, but I can't even quite remember how I did that. If someone can tip me in the right, I'd greatly appreciate it.

There is an old utility you can try called D3DWindower.
It will let you run SWGB in windowed mode, however it only seems to work on Windows XP...

Thanks! That tip led me at least in the right direction. A Google search DID find several downloads of D3DWindower that said they were all updated for Windows 8, or even 10, but my computer refused to download them, insisting they were viruses. HOWEVER, I also found in that search a list of analogous programs that do pretty much the same, and gave me no such trouble, and proceeded to download one called DxWnD, which is serving my needs fine. So, again, thank-you for at least pointing me in the right direction.
