    Default How to ALT+TAB in and out of the game without waiting TUTORIAL

    I'm currently writing an AAR and I thought I could give you guys a very important tip since I haven't seen it around here or the FAQ.

    Maybe most of you know about the latest Stainless Steel 6.3 "alt+tab" feature. If you don't, then I quote:

    Auto border-less mode - ALT+TAB in and out of the game without any loading.

    Basically you can switch from your game to your text editor (or any other application) and vice-versa instantly

    So enough talking and here are the steps for VANILLA (It can be done with any mod, but modifications may vary):

    *** Back up file before modification! ****

    1.- Go to C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War and open/edit the file medieval2.preference.cfg. Add the following lines:

    Code:
    [launcher]
    autoBorderlessMode=true
    And under [video] add:

    Code:
    windowed=true
    borderless_window=true


    2.- Make the file 'read-only' so the game can't restore it to the original form.

    3.- Run M2TW and set your M2TW resolution to the same as your windows desktop resolution.

    4.- Restart M2TW and Enjoy!
