So i currently use windows 11 ( angry )
and when i use the alt + enter cheat to skip enemy turns (yes i'm a dirty cheater), the game switches to windowed mode, pressing it again returns it to full screen.

It's very annoying!

Any idea on how to turn of the alt + enter windows hotkey specifically? Would like to still be able to use alt + tab happy

Cheers and much love,

Joshua

Guys i have fixed it with a temporary solution, but i hardly understand how.

What i did was go to regedit, search for "DISABLEDWM" and found an entry that led to my Ja2.exe file. I completely deleted this entry, and it's all fixed.

Maybe some of the tech guru's here can explain it a lot better, so that it can help other people in the future?

(this only works when I have my powertoys turned on, in which i swapped my left alt and right alt
it also comes at the cost of not being able to use ALT-strafing/rolling movement)

Cheers!

Edit: Found the permanent solution!
went into ddraw.ini and wrote "fullscreen=true"

was much simpler than the tricks i tried before suprised

Ugh, well...

While the game doesnt switch to windowed mode anymore, the ALT+Enter cheat still doesn't work angry

I don't quite know why but it seems to have to do with the ddraw.dll that i use.

The one in the windows 8 fix does allow me to use the alt+enter cheat, but i don't use that one because it makes my game lag.

EDIT: FIXED IT

by doing this to the ddraw.ini

; ### Hotkeys ###
; Use the following settings to configure your hotkeys, 0x00 = disabled

; Switch between windowed and fullscreen mode = [Alt] + ???
keytogglefullscreen=0x00

; Maximize window without frame = [Alt] + ???
keytogglemaximize=0x00

; Unlock cursor 1 = [Ctrl] + ???
keyunlockcursor1=0x00

; Unlock cursor 2 = [Right Alt] + ???
keyunlockcursor2=0x00

; Screenshot

novidmem=true

So that's it, the only problem is that the speed-up key thumbs down doesn't work (it makes the game slow-motion when held). But i can live with that.

Cheers!
