    When I play I play in a windowed mode, always have and for many reasons, but without it just is not right.

    In Full Screen al is there but I cannot just hop out to work on anything, screen shots, Discord, . . . ANYTHING.

    Now as you see in Windowed mode and with my settings I do not have the Hot bar up.

    SOOO when I posted this in the QA https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/known-full-screen-mode.153254/

    On the 19th and it was acknowledged, why was nothing done?

    Was it because you just do not care about what I think?

    Well guess what you left it alone with no fix and there are players who posted it again within minutes of updates.

    Yeah I am delusional . . . . . . . .

    I noticed that if you use vertical stretch to top instead of drag/snapping the window, you can get a full size window without full screen. This is in windows 8 though, so ymmv.

    I feel your frustration. Having to open options every time and remove full screen is a giant pain in the rear.

    My full screen, window mode works at it should. Not sure why you are having issues. I tried on Windows and Linux.

    Fix1: If you want to see your whole screen in window mode, use a lower resolution..
    Fix2: And if you need to hop out from full screen, you could always use ALT TAB right?

    NO I am not going to change my Resolution to "FIX" a problem they created.

    Totally defeats the purpose of the ability to select Full Screen or Windowed.


    Soo if they are NOT going to fix it just remove the option. HOWEVER you also then need to STOP using off game screens for just about everything. Help - In Game / Bugs - in Game / Wiki and other Info - in game / MAP (ONE THAT WORKS) - In Game

    the major issue is letting it sit for 10 days and doing N O T H I N G and then when bug reported after release saying the exact same thing "an issue with new Unity"

    I did NOT say windowed does not work saying it has changed, and IS NOT working in Maximized Window, if you have to change resolution.

    Also other players are having issues with it also.

    While Crafting in order to do anything other than watch the mind numbing craft have to enter Options adjust go back and forth, serious PITA.

    This is really annoying.
    When I untick windowed mode, and try to maximize window so I can see the bar on the bottom of my screen, it goes full screen and RETICKS THE BOX.
    No! stop doing this! I don't want to play fullscreen! rawr!

    In Chris's stream yesterday, he blamed it on Unity and said we'd have to "live with it" for a release or two - for Unity to fix it.
    Sorry, but I don't buy into this being a Unity bug.

    I do not buy into this either but I can except it for now.

    What is NOT acceptable is all tis crap about these Live Stream and such.

    THESE ARE THE FORUMS FOR THIS GAME, THIS IS THE PLACE TO REPORT BUGS AND SUCH. WITH THAT THIS IS ALSO THEPLACE FOR DEVS TO REPLY AND ACKNOWLEDGE.

    I AM NOT GOING TO SURF THRU OR SPEND ANY TIME TRYING TO LOCATER AREPLY THAT SHOULD BE HERE BY THE DEV TEAM.

    THEY ARE SPENDING WAY TO MUCH TIME ON ALTERNATIVE COMMUINICATIONS WHICH DETER FROM ACTUAL WORK AND PROGRESS ON THE GAME.

    did I yell sure because this is not something new and its failure is going to result in complete failure.

    Still a bug and there is no progress?

    DO NOT TEL ME TO GO LOOK AT A STREAM, USE THE TOOLS THAT WORK TO DEAL WITH ISSUES.
