[Request] Borderless Windowed Mode

I constantly hear complaints of "Alt-Tabbing drops my fps", and it does. It renders you unable to play for up to 15-20 seconds depending on your computer. A solution to this was found for the AAO 2.5 Assist client. It creates a borderless window that fills up the whole screen regardless of resolution. I was wondering if something like this could be implemented as an option instead of full screen.

    i also recently noticed in open beta, i experience low framerate at the start of some rounds as if just coming back from an alt-tab (even though i did not alt-tab).

    you really only get like 5 seconds to choose weapon and spawn into the world before the round goes live. i don't think that's enough time to get the framerate up before the round goes live.

    it is sad that i feel like we need another 5 seconds added to the start of each round just so i can get my framerate all the way up before the round goes live...

    also what happened to using the time between rounds to discuss strats? i can barely get my gun and get to the spawn barrier in time before the round goes live. sadly all the time between rounds is wasted, forcing everyone to stare at scoreboards. we really need a way to skip that and get in and select weapon and prepare for next round, instead of stare at scoreboard.

    +1, I also play in windowed mode so I can do stuff while I'm dead. I remember requesting borderless window back in the closed beta days.

    I know it's possible, Spanky over at aao25.com got it working with their client. I think it's something that needs to be implemented.

    Although, they also fixed a lot of other things the devs were unwilling to do back then...
