    Sadly (or rather understandably) there are always apps that simply refuse the best efforts of programmers to be elevated to new tech levels. That said: running the tool in compatibilities' '640*480...
  2. Re: Have Steam dumbed down the Alexander exe file?

    Damn, I was hoping that would address the text issue. That's pretty much the end of my tech expertise where this is concerned.
