Help, cannot run it windowed

Postby FlyAway » Thu 25 Dec 2003 - 14:21

Hi all (and marry x-mas).

Just got Sail sim ( and upgraded) installed but cannot run it in a window and therefore I am unable to access all sub-windows (like boats, environment etc), the system open the window in the background but the game screen come up and prevent seeing the window below.
Running a PIV, 512 mem, Radeon 9500 pro.
Any suggestion plz?

I have experienced the same problem.
What I did was:
I uninstalled all the SS files.
Re-installed the SS4.2.4.0, but NOT the update, and everything works fine, despite the fact that I have a ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (I initially installed the update because it would have resolved slow running with this graphics card).
Hope this helps.
