Ingredients : AutoHotkey
Preparation time : 10 minutes
Just download and run this file and forget about everything below...apart from the shortcut key instructions. WGT Golf fullscreen.exe
click to view fullsize
1.) To install AutoHotkey, go to the website and click the download button.
2.) Double click the downloaded file to run the installer.
3.) Click the express installation button on the set up window.
4.) When the installation has completed, click the exit button on the set up window.
Once you've got AutoHotkey installed, open up Windows Explorer and navigate to wherever you want your AutoHotkey file to be saved. Then, right click on an empty space in Explorer and hover over 'New' from the menu, then from the extended menu, click 'AutoHotkey Script', this will create a new AutoHotkey file in Windows Explorer. Right click on that new file and select 'Open with ... Notepad' or 'Edit Script'. Select everything in the opened Notepad window and delete it.
Copy the following code...
#IfWinActive, WGT Golf
SysGet, size, MonitorWorkArea
if (sizetop > 0) sizebottom := sizebottom - sizetop
if (sizeleft > 0) sizeright := sizeright - sizeleft
WinSet, Style, -0xC00000, WGT Golf
WinMove, WGT Golf, , sizeleft, sizetop, sizeright, sizebottom
WinSet, Style, +0xC00000, WGT Golf
WinMove, WGT Golf, , sizeright/2-600, sizebottom/2-335, 1200, 675
...and paste it into Notepad, then save it with whatever filename you like, but it MUST end with .ahk
Now you can close Notepad.
To run that AutoHotKey script, just double click that file. When it is running you should see an AutoHotKey icon (green square with a white H) in the system tray.
It does not matter whether you start the game first, then run the script, or the other way about, it should (hopefully) work in either case.
The script won't work if the game is in fullscreen mode, so make sure that is off in the game options first. As for the screen size options in the game, it doesn't matter which one you choose.
Also, this script doesn't work for the game launcher. Wait for the game screen to appear before trying the shortcut keys.
The script gives you three shortcut keys to play with...
CTRL + f
This puts the game into fullscreen mode. You may have to press the 'f' key up to three times whilst holding down the CTRL key to make sure the window is fullscreen and the border is gone.
CTRL + w
This puts the game back into windowed mode. It won't be the size it was when you opened the game (haven't worked out how to do that yet) but it gives you something you can move about that doesn't take up the whole screen.
CTRL + x
This shortcut exits out of the script. Using this stops the shortcut keys working and removes the AHK icon from your system tray.
I hope this works for you guys, but there are no guarantees.
Good luck. ; )
