for some reason, when launching NW, it will randomly & unexpectedly run in windowed mode, even if I set it to fullscreen when the game has fully loaded.

is this a known issue, and if not, what else could be causing it?

my current spec is:

GPU: AMD radeon HD7970 with latest CCC & drivers.

OS: W7 64bit

not sure if any other specs are needed, so if any more info is needed, let me know.

    the game seems to randomly pick from "windowed", "maximized windowed", and "fullscreen"

    i have always had this issue ever since dx11 was available. it would be fullscreen if i asked it ; but as soon as i alt tab or reboot the game, back to windowed.

    dx9 and dx9ex don't have this dirty problem.
    try either of these dx modes in the video option and it should fix your trouble

    after finding what you like, exit the game clean and load it again. just to make sure config files are properly updated.

    I've had this problem even before the patch. Every day I have to go through the process of getting it to launch in fullscreen.

    Have always had this problem. After some patches it seems to happen less often. After others, more.

    It probably just has something to do with DX11 handles and video card drivers or some such, I noticed that whenever this happens to me, when I go into the video settings, it always says "unknown" for display adapter. as soon as you change resolutions or switch to fullscreen mode, it must refresh the driver cache, find the display adapter again and fix itself.

    Same here. Anyone know if there is a benefit for running dx11 over 9 with neverwinter?
