Windowed mode?

Hey guys I've been looking feverishly for a windowed mode so I could stream a playthrough of the single player to my gaming stream on justin.tv.

-windowed or -sw don't work, and neither does the classic alt+enter trick. I notice that there's a drop down for "Fullscreen" but where other games have an option to "Run in window", this one is for some reason missing it.

Any ideas?

Check the config file for "windowed=0" or "fullscreen=1", One of those should be in that file. Every other game has it, this one should as well.

C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\email\dark messiah might and magic single player\mm\cfg\config.cfg?

That's the only logical config file I could find, and there's no video settings in it at all. Which is kind of weird because most configs usually have res information at least.

Here is how to make it windowed mode guys.

Go to your "x:\Steam\steamapps\<steam name>\dark messiah might and magic single player\mm\cfg" and open your config.cfg file.

This will not be in here though, but anywhere in here, input "mat_setvideomode <width> <height> 1" 1 = windowed mode, 0 = full screen. Make sure you make these changes after you edited everything in your options first otherwise I believe it will remove that line if you change your video settings.

The Ubisoft/other publisher/developer videos will still play in windowed mode, but once you get to the main menu, it will be in windowed mode.

Setting it in the config doesn't seem to save for me, but typing the command in manually does the trick. Thank you very much good sir.

Putting the command in the console works just fine and dandy, thank you for that.
But it seems to be stuck at 800x600 resolution. Is there any way to increase that to a higher res? Preferably 1920x1080?
Thank you for your time.
