How to force games into a window - Spud's Quest case

Postby Nowhere Girl » Fri Jun 01, 2018 7:13 pm

I wanted to replay the original version of "Spud's Quest" after several years and I realized that it's fullscreen... :(
I just don't like fullscreen. I want my games running in clean windows. How to force this particular game into a window? Alt-Enter doesn't work. Creating a shortcut and adding "-window", "-w" or "-windowmode" in the property line doesn't work. The game doesn't have an ini file. I even tried using Virtual Box, but I have no idea at all how to run a game after opening the program...
Fullscreen just creates lots of problems, such as I don't know what size will my screenshots be and I can only use Paint XP for Windows 7, which can change image size only in percentages...
