Windows 10 Windowed mode only?

Recommended Posts

I saw brief mention of this in the first thread but I thought I should start a new topic. My win 8.1 machine died on me so I had to buy a new laptop. (Old one will not power on.)

 

I've used my keys to download games I had before. So far so good. Thing of it is, I am only able to play in windowed mode. I tried going into the compatibility settings but in 8 or 7 the games will not load.

 

On AV-4 I go into options and click full screen but nothing happens. When I click out and  back in, it's defaulted again to windowed mode. The right hand side of the window, the max square is greyed out.

 

I already tried going into the display settings but the only setting for scaling had no evident effect on the game. Any thoughts? Or am I just stuck in windowed mode unless I buy a copy of 8.1 and install it.

 

Frankly I'm hating Win 10. When I accidentally got slammed with the update last spring I reverted back to 8.1 and never regretted it. Unfortunately, my discs to reinstall 8.1 won't work on this machine or I would have done so already. :(

Yes and when I do that the game will not load. It may be a WildTangent specific problem since their game launcher will not load either when I set the game to run in compatibility mode.

I had the same problem. I tried everything any one suggested and nothing worked. I finally solved it by going to walmart and buying a refurbished windows 7 machine just to play my hundreds of dollars worth of games that I have been collecting since RPG95 came out.

I also hate windows 10 as they have had  a couple of years now to fix this problem. My sister in law  switched to mac so she could play her games. She doesn't play the rpg games; She likes some other kind.

Wise decision as Microsoft doesn't seem to want to keep us happy any more. I wish there was some way to transfer all my games to another format that will play on other kinds of computers. :)
