SWBF2 Tool to join GameRanger in windowed mode

Postby AnthonyBF2 » Fri Aug 05, 2016 11:31 am

Normally you cannot play in windowed mode on GameRanger for SWBF2 and this made me sad and mad, so I decided to do something about it. I made a small program in AutoIT 3 to fix this and I want to share it because I have to think many people like window mode.

Using the tool is very simple. You first download it, rename it to "swbf2sm.exe" and place it the game's GameData folder. You then need to tell GameRanger to look for this. When you click the Join button in a room, GameRanger will launch this tool. You then just click the launch SWBF2 button on the tool and play.

Source code is included.

Not gonna lie, testing primarily in the debugger has gotten me REALLY used to playing in windowed mode lmao

It's especially nice to not have to fix the positions of all my other open windows ever time I tab out of the game's nasty 800x600 main menu. :u
