I have this Trainz Railroad Simulator 2004 and it doesn't support widescreen resolutions or high resolutions at all so basically it looks AWFUL on my 22' widescreen

ive tried "C:\Program Files\Auran\TRS2004\TRS2004.exe" -window and "C:\Program Files\Auran\TRS2004\TRS2004.exe" -w and even "C:\Program Files\Auran\TRS2004\TRS2004.exe" -windowed i also tried to click Alt + Enter but it doesn't change anything the game still runs on full screen mode :(

anyways how can i force it to run in a windowed mode?

You could try -w 1680 -h 1050 for a widescreen resolution, although I'm not completely sure it'd work. To my knowledge, there's no other way to get a game into windowed mode, forced or not. There might be utilities, but I can't be sure they'd work either as the game is rather old now, and most utilities only function with current or previously popular games.


Huh yeah, whatever ^^
