    hi guys, so I'm on a laptop running saturns patch so i can't use the GDI.exe anymore. My laptop is connected to my tv resolution 1920 x 1080. I change to windowed mode and I'm getting the screen looking weird like below. any help? Also has anybody found a solution to running a windowed game when changing Windows 10 screen size to 125%? thanks for any help

    Hello

    I'm playing April 17 Update with 800x600 Win10 Home.
    I was playing perfectly well untill today.
    Now, when i'm on a match and have a inj/red card/sub, i can't simply drag any players from position or even to substitute and that's really, really annoying.
    I've tried the full mode and seems to work normally, so i supposed is something with the resolution.
    Thanks

    Windowed Made- Fail

    When I try to put cm in windowed mode i get this message:


    Unable to initialise the graphics in windoed mode - please ensure that Direct X has been installed correctøy and that your desktop is in at least 800x600 pixel resolution and is in 16 bit color.



    My screen resolution is higher than 800x600, Im running cm in 16 bit color. This is a new computer (windows 10) so i guess direct x should be ok.


    Could anyone please help me?

    Are there any geniuses that could make a patch just to make the screen 1280 x 800 without changing anything else in the game?
    Eyes are hurting its so small in a window

    Choose full screen if you want bigger?

    You can patch the game with Tapani or Saturn and these give you options to increase the resolution.

    Hey, windows has just done a massive update to my laptop and now I can't even launch the game!!?

    I've never had this problem before.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times... nothing.
    I've rebooted the laptop to go back to earlier version of Windows.... and still nothing! !?

    Installed Direct X again... nothing.

    I'm at a loss, I don't usually have tech issues ever when dealing with the game but this one has me stumped.

    The error message I get is
    "Unable to initialise the graphics in full screen mode - please ensure that Direct X has been installed correctly and your graphics adaptor supports 800 x 600 pixel resolution in 16 bit colour"

    The patch I am using is in 1280 x 800 and that message came up.
    So I uninstalled and reinstalled and attempted to run game in original mode and it gets me as far aso the beginning start screen but the moment I click on 'Game Settings' to get in in windowed mode, the game just crashes!?

    What's going on?

    Thanks

    Eddie, i haven't got a solution but I have similar problems, although the game is working. Post update (which took 2 hours!!!) the resolution of CM is stretched in full screen mode. I'm no expert but perhaps Microsoft have stopped supporting older screen resolutions? I will look into it over the weekend and see if I can fix my own problem. I know that isn't immediately helpful but it might help you identify what's going on.

    I had longer mess around with the resolution and it has me stumped too. Even changing my resolution to 800x600 manually still results in a slightly stretched screen. I did manage to get windowed mode working which you may want to try but I found it too small so am persevering with full screen.

    If it was me i'd be tempted to relaunch the patcher and go back to a lower resolution. Not the ideal solution but worthwhile if you can get the game to work.
