    Only problem I have with L2 is that after all those years the game still doesn't support borderless full-screen mode. Playing 2 characters (like most), means I need to play in windowed boxes and that kills performance a lot. A Windowed L2 box has an average FPS of ~40 and (on Core) 10 in Aden, while fullscreen I get 120+ and in Aden ~45.

    Why hasn't PlayNC never implemented this borderless full-screen option? Any of the devs/CMs here can ask for this feature in Korea?

    Okay, I've found it, but it has 2 gripes though:

    1. Performance is as bad as a windowed instance of the game :(
    2. I can't set on which monitor the game plays. And with Frost in place and blocking 3rd party tools like DisplayFusion, I also can't force the game to hop to an other monitor :(

    The archaic unreal engine 2.5 support it, as there is an option in the ini file.

    But, as it's an official server on which we can't (for legal reasons) modify files (and Frost is checking it), it won't be possible.

    I don't get it. There is a borderless-window feature in the GoD client, I used it a few days ago when I was testing my settings. The only downside is that you can't say which real-life window will be used for the game (which is annoying I agree).
    Also it's dumb to expect a full-screen performance in a windowed mode. Borderless-window is just what it says - a window without borders (so the ingame image is not scaled). But since it's still a window all your background programs and threads are still being emulated and calculated for. This is what you trade - performance for ease/speed of alt-tabbing, to your other box, chat program, video/movie whatever. Thinking you must have both is naive...


    P.S. fyi fullscreen is, by default, borderless so...

    Make it windowed, drag top of L2 window to the top or screen, it starts to scale to full border window. This is as close to borderless as you can have.

    Is there a demand for such program? I could develop something that will make ANY game border-less window mode for easy minimization. Please let me know if I should make this.

    There are already plenty of programs, the issue is that Frost hides and locks the l2.exe so you can't really manipulate it. I doubt you would be able to get a hold of the shell window but you may try :)

    I could always bypass it, but I won't do something that is against the rules. I would need Admin's permission, unfortunately.
