Hello everybody,

Firstly, congratulations on a successful game launch. The reviews and sales rankings are very encouraging!
I thought I'd reproduce this Blitzkrieg command line tip as it works equally well with Talvisota:

Running Blitzkrieg in windowed mode, as opposed to full screen mode, enables the game screen resolution to be set lower than the monitors maximum. For example, this means you could play at 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024). Running in this mode means that the game will run, as the switch name implies, inside a window on your desktop. Performance when switching between the game and windows is greatly improved with this mode and, if you have sufficient free monitor space, you can run Blitzkrieg whilst keeping a watch over other applications, such as instant messaging clients, at the same time.
If the game is run with this switch and you set your game resolution to the maximum your monitor allows then the game will still run in a full screen window with no desktop visible, but with the improved "switching" performance.

It has been found that when running in windowed mode it is easier to kill off Blitzkrieg if it has crashed out. In some instances, when running fullscreen the game can crash but there is no way back to the desktop to kill the process, usually resulting in the PC having to be physically powered off.

Example: Click Start, then Run. Type in "C:\Program Files\Blitzfront Game Studio\Talvisota - Icy Hell\Talvisota.exe" -windowed then press RETURN.
