    Hey,

     

    i bought me this tablet, because i want to play games in windows, like industry giant 2, hotel manager 2, football manager 13 from ea sports, transport giant and open ttd.

     

    when i start industry giant, and i change the resolution it would be unplayable, when i change the resolution to smaller reso, i get only a small window. How can i set this to full screen with lower resolution?

     

    Or are this games unplayable on this tablet?

    Is there any tablet on that i can play this games?

    In general old games play amazingly well on this tablet. Sometime I get black screen or something but that is 99% fixed by setting compatibility to windows 95/98/xp etc. Most old games were designed for 1024×768 which is exactly 1/4 the resolution of this tablet so they generally work great when set to that fullscreen (even older games are 640×480 which also works well on the 4:3 ration screen). Usually in game there will be a full screen option. If not try pressing alt+enter

     

    EDIT: if that fails this might help http://slashgenie.com/how-to-run-games-in-full-screen-mode-on-windows-10/

    What games have you tested  and run great on this tablet?

     

    i think that is a setting thing on my tablet, that it dont run the games.

    A whole load some downloaded from gog (older games like fallout, cannon fodder, point and click games) and then a lot of newer stuff from steam, mainly indie games and oldish ones like half life 2. Had no problems playing any after maybe a little setup. I don’t play a lot of strategy games like you seem to prefer but I did download OpenRA which is a port of red alert 2 and dune 2000 and that works perfect for me.

    OpenRa is working on the tablet very well almost by me.

     

    Half Life 2 I will test after downloading.

      No special settings, it even seems to run okay at full resolution. I have it installed to an sd card though so loading times are not great but once loaded its perfect.

    mmhmh… half life 2 start without any problems.

     

    My other games dont start from steam, click on play, a black small (dos)window appear and it closes very fast and that was all. Nothing happen more.

     

    what could this be?

    Any game that does that is a problem with windows 10 not this tablet. Find the exe (from steam you right click, properties, manage local files (or something similar)  )  right click the exe and go to compatability, try selecting a version of windows most relevant to the game, if its very old choose windows 95/98 if its newer xp or windows 7. Then try again. Should work. Some games have a launcher and a game exe, to be safe just apply the compatibility option to all exe files in the game folder

    no the compatability would not change anything. the window appears for 1/4 second and then away… you cant read the dos window…

    hmm in that case I’d search for “[game name] windows 10” in google. most likely other will have had the same problem and will have a fix. Every problem I have had with a game has been because of windows 10 not the tablet. most of the time compatability mode fixes the problem but I know there have been problems with some other games with windows 10.

    wtf dead space, l4d2 and dark souls work? What sort of fps do you get? Installed to sd card I assume? I use mine as a retro game machine but maybe I will try some more demanding games. I’ve not turned turbo off myself. How did you do that on yours?

    getting mostly 30fps on on most, 22-25 on dark souls, sacrifice was really stuttering;needs to have patch 3, homeworld didn’t check but was smooth.

    All installed on main drive, only sacrifice and homeworld on sd.
