Fullscreen - slow loads, fullscreen menus and ingame
download the ddraw linked here [You must login to view link]
extract it to the roguespear.exe location
The compatibility settings I use are: run as windows 98,16bit,run as admin
go to the registry mine was located here
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Red Storm Entertainment\Rogue Spear

change Fullscreen to TRUE
this should allow you to launch in fullscreen and select your desired resolution from the video screen
the downside to this is the game loads slowly when loading into a map (15seconds maybe?)

windowed -fast loads,small menus,selected resolution when playing
do the above up to the registry step
fullscreen FALSE
VideoResolution 1600x900

window mode lets you fast load into maps again
cap the frame rate to 60 or 30 if you want your 3rd person to be as fast as possible
in window mode you'll still have a small screen for the menus and waiting screen but once you load into the map it will go to 1600x900

borderless windowed -fast loads,small menus,fullscreen resolution when playing
Set the game to run in windowed mentioned above
download this [You must login to view link]
launch the program,launch RS, alt tab back to the program and find RS in list of applications and press the right arrow and move it over to favorites.
alt tab back to RS and if it doesn't work straight away just relaunch the game
from there go to the graphics menu and change to resolution you want to use

doing this will allow you have fast loads and be fullscreen when you play. the menu sections and all that will still be small

If this doesn't work for you leave a message here or message me in the lobby im normally there and ill try and help if i can <3

Come play Rogue spear on Windows 10 now, or any Windows version -->
