    anybody know how to play Sim City 4 in a window and not full screen mode.
    I want the game to play in the background sometimes while I surf the web, but it defaults to taking over the screen and automatically goes into full screen mode when I start the game. I feel like I am using a pc...

    please help!! haha

    The Readme tells you how to do it. I believe holding option or command key at startup will cause a special options window to come up, allowing you to play in a window and even a custom resolution.

    Not for me!

    This is all I get when hitting command or option while booting the game:

    Nothing about Windowed Mode, or anything else described in the ReadMe (including iTunes support).

    Also, command-enter while playing doesn't break out of fullscreen like with other Cider games.

    Any ideas?
