Sim City 4 and running it in a window

Posted: 08-04-2008, 09:46 PM
I've been trying to get Sim City 4 to run in a window instead of the usual
Fullscreen mode. I have put the -w at the end of the target, even with the
space between the exe and the -w and it's not working. It keeps booting into
Fullscreen mode. What can I do?

By the way, I'm running a Dell Inspiron 530 Intel Core2_Duo Quad-core Windows
Vista Ultimate 4GB Ram, ATI All-in-Wonder HD 512mb video card

I do appreciate the effort, but it turns out it was my error. I had to
specify the resolution and color-mix within the command line in order to get
it to work. THANKS!
