    Ok, so this game is way old, but I loved it on my PS1, so I bough it for $4. It looks good, but I would like to do a couple of things and maybe someone here can help.
    I have the last updater I could find on version tracker and I've turned everything up to the max. But I'd like to run the game in a windowed mode. I have an LCD with 1600x1200 res and making the game run at 1024x768 full screen makes these old graphics look worse!
    Does anybody know if I can modify a preference file or something to change this, or if there are any other secret setting I can juice up?

    Thanks guys!

    not that I know of. Wipeout 2097 is a rather bad port IMO.

    There's no way that I know of. Have you turned on FSAA in the menu screen before loading the game?

    Yeah, I got the update and it's nicer. It plays much better with FSAA. I just wish I could run in in a window since 1024x768 on a 20" LCD looks like crap.
    The game looks great (for it's age) on my 12" Pbook because of the small screen. Now if I could just find a good joypad...

    When you first run the game the menu screen should give you an option load run in a window, I'm using v1.3 and it does on mine.... I'll double check

    checked last night... no option for window mode....

    I know in xp you can hit alt+enter to window a screen, is there a similar osx shortcut?

    I run on a 19" lcd which has a native 1280x1024 and it's very clear.... as long as fsaa is on high

    $4.95! You can't go wrong even if you think it sucks.
