Tutorial on Windowed Mode


What is Windowed Mode?

Windowed Mode is just that, a window on your desktop that allows you to play the game and do a number of multiple things, such as administrate a server, chat and check on the forums as well as everyday tasks such as, checking email between rounds and map changes.

How do I activate Windowed Mode?

Since Friday 12th January 2010, you have been able to activate windowed mode. If you have joined after this date or started the game for the first time since this date then windowed mode will already be activated for you. It is just a simple case of starting the game and entering a server, the window can be positioned on your desktop, wherever you want it.

How can I change from Windowed mode to Fullscreen?

There are two ways you can change from Windowed Mode to Fullscreen and vice versa.

Method 1:
  • Start up your game by logging into the website and hitting the play now button
  • Allow the game to load and select a Hero
  • Select "Options" then "Settings"
  • You will have a "Window Mode" area and two options, Window Mode and Fullscreen, see Image 1, which can be found below
  • Select the appropriate one you want
  • Now your choice will be permanent until you change it again

Method 2:

When in-game simply press Alt+Enter, this will change the screen modes from one to the other

I am using Windowed Mode but I can't see my cursor or do daily tasks, how can I stop this?

When in Windowed Mode, your cursor is hidden in the game's window and stopped by the borders, this is to stop you moving your cursor outside of the game and having your Hero become unresponsive.

If you wish to continue tasks while the next map loads etc. then you can press ALT+TAB and select a task that is running (for example: if you have a web browser running in the background, use ALT+TAB and select the browser icon)

Can I resize or select the resolution of my game window?

Afraid not, the resolution is 1024 x 768, which does mean that if you want to stretch the window, you would have to make your desktop the same resolution. The only drawback to this is that if you change to your original resolution, the game window can become distorted, if this happens, just move the window around and it will snap back to normal.

It is unknown whether the option to resize will be implemented.

How come you are playing BFH with Chrome? I use Chrome and it says my browser isn't supported. Did you start it in IE and pull up Chrome afterwards?

1024x768 is really too low for most modern widescreen monitors.

please include the resize function asap!!

I have always used Windowed Mode and it is good, because you can chat with your friends in msn messenger or when map loads do something on your desktop, etc
