To start I just want to have the windows over-layed ... so I tried the advice in the thread "Swapping to different character" (topic 1952) where you suggested full screen stacked. Sadly, that does not work on my system. I get the export to not try to scale my 1920x1080 default screen size, but the applications when launched come up in some smaller (I don't know how much smaller since EQ does not easily show what it thinks the screen size is) window configuration.
If I did it right the config file XML is at: http://www.privatepaste.com/b21d61d62b
So, the game is EverQuest (Original), two characters to be launched.
I just want to launch two characters in full screen mode with the ability to swap the view between the two characters. Being old, I need all the screen space I can get.
I tried other settings, but, instead of scaling the 1920x1080 image down, it changes the viewport size which messes up my game screen layouts.
So, you say it is simple... I beg to differ ... I spend hours on this ... wiping the configurations, trying exports and play8ing with the alternative settings til I be blue in t'face...
If you can point me the right way, I will move on to the other problems I seem to have with the application. The virtualization may be what I need to avoid disk thrashing during gameplay, but, if I cannot use the monitor I have, then ALT-Tab will ahve to do and I will live with that or go to a two system set-up ...
