Anyone else experiencing a window mode only problem? I can't seem to get the game into normal fullscreen. Clean copy of course. No -window whatsoever activated.

The first time I launched it was normal fullscreen, but then it also went into normal mod. I can't seem to pass after the TROIKA logo, so it doesn't load the main screen (new game, load game...)

I'm reinstalling everything.

Are you guys using the resolution patch? I've never tested the resolution patch so I don't know what kind of strange effects will happen when using it.

Okay I've reinstalled everything out of my dear loved CDs, but... It's still windowed.

At least now I can play Very Happy
Maybe I'll install respatch to fix it.

(I personnaly don't mind since I like playing in window mod)

Mine is respatched actually. (1920x1080 or whatever it is).

Could it be that it writes this information somewhere down in the registry?

The Res Patch might put it in registry but TFN certainly doesn't. You may want to right click on the game icon and make sure you aren't playing in Windowed mode.

I have a 4:3 CRT monitor that I play on at 1280x1024 and I always play in fullscreen. I'm not sure how you're getting yours to play in Windowed mode.

Nope, nothing that would indicate me using -window on purpose.

Afaik, ResPatch does not write in the registry. But it changes the cl_dll. And I think another file. Not sure if it's the exe itself, or another dll.
I play on my laptop, with the 16 to 10 resolution (1280*800). At least in the menues, it cuts off the top and bottom of the screen. I don't think that it affects the actual gameplay, but I only get the lower half of the title word "Vampire" and I don't get the bottom line TFN 1.1 unless I reset to 4 to 3. And then everything is way too short and wide. The pc's ass loks like the one of a bloody elephant then.

Actually I bought several 17" CRT 4:3 monitors a few years ago just for Bloodlines. I knew Bloodlines didn't look good at 16:9 or 16:10 resolutions so now I have several 4:3s sitting in my closet at home. I use them ONLY for Bloodlines, for everything else I use my 22" widescreen (Fallout3/Skyrim).

I will probably buy a 19" 4:3 flatscreen soon before they go out of stock, just so I can continue gaming Bloodlines long after my CRTs die.
