About running in windowed mode...
Okay, I've tried using DxWnd to get the game running windowed because I don't like how it's stretched on widescreen monitors, and it seems like Steam is doing something that prevents it from working. Tried turning off the in-game community, doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know how to get this version to run in a window?

Did you try Alt-Enter?

If you have an Nvidia card you can set your GPU to scale based on Aspect ratio so it doesn't stretch.

Not sure if you're still looking, but you can do it by editing a config file.

The only value you should ever edit in the ini is the 4th integer (0=windowed mode, 1=full-screen mode). The first three values (Horizontal resolution, vertical resolution, bit depth) are hardcoded so they will be ignored anyway, the last one (name of the main game file) should be left alone.


For Syberia 2, the contents of player.ini should be

0 BaseCMO.cmo

Once again, 0=windowed mode, 1=full-screen mode, leave the second parameter alone.

I had given up, actually. This solution actually seems to work though, so looks like it's back on my list. I had written it off as unplayable, so thanks for pointing it out. Hopefully it helps others as well. =)

Where did you place your ini file? It needs to go in your where the game is located. If you didn't change where that is, then it should be put in Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/Syberia
I can't think of any other reason that it would not work.

I had a strange problem, I really don't mind about fullscreen mode, but my game blinked oddly every second or two, so it irritated me a little bit.

So, I tried following method:

It worked for me, now game runs in windowed mode perfectly well, and also I have no these strange blinks.
