A bit of a technical question i think: i have a macbook, i put windows on it and i've installed DoW: DC. IT worked perfectly, but recently it always plays in a small window instead of fullscreen. I couldn't find what was wrong in the settings, so I went to google :p. there i found something about having to open a graficks.. something-something file, but when i do that i have to select my videocard, but no options are shown :/ this is a bit vague, but does anyone know a way to fix it? :p

I think you mean the graphics autoconfig thing. This happened to me but with an older graphics card. You need to update your drivers for the graphics card as unlike apple computers, windows needs drivers to work properly.

If you know the exact model name of your card google its manufacturers name and look for drivers.

Hope this helps.

Edit: by updating the drivers, it will then display your card in the drop down menu.

How did you install XP on your Mac. If you've just installed it then you might be missing certain critical files.

Have a look at this, this might help
