    I do too much other stuff while I'm playing to use fullscreen.

    I don't use fullscreen since ICQ won't pop messages.
    I maximize the window.

    I use Full Screen and will go to window mode only when I need to.

    By Full Screen I mean the screen is dedicated to the Game Screen vs Full Screen Window Mode.:pint:

    But with the Enhanced Client, I am sure it is just a habit vs any benefit.
     
  4. I run maximized most of the time, but you can run fullscreen and ICQ if you have two monitors. That setup works really well.

    There's not a choice for "windowed, without window frame".

    As there's no difference in performance whatsoever between full screen and windowed mode on my computer, I play windowed mode (maximized). This way I can use ICQ and my web browser while playing.

    Maximized Window so I can still access ICQ.

    ...

    Windowed mode due to having 3 monitors.

    So it resides on the central widescreen monitor with window frame turned off. As a side note, the Windows taskbar is moved over to the right-hand side monitor so without the window frame it's about as close to "full screen" a syou can get without being full screen.

    As do I. I multitask like an octopus. I only have a mere two monitors *eyes Dermott*, but they're usually crammed full of stuff.

    I have to play full screen.

    When I'm in windowed mode, the little hand doesn't point to where the mouse should be pointing. It's too annoying. (and as it turned out, a game breaker, as I'm back to the old client again)

    Playing fullscreen since in windowed mode (my screen is 1680x1050), the graphics "wobble" a bit which is really annoying. Performance is also better in fullscreen for me.

    But I'd prefer to play in windowed mode since I always have to ALT+TAB to icq and when I get back to UO, most of the time I have to deactivate and reactivate sound to hear something again. :/

    edit:

    does anyone else have this graphics problem? I'd love to play in windowed mode!
