    I have just bought GTA: San Andreas for Mac via the app store.

    Is it possible, whether via Rockstar or tweak, to play the game in a Window rather than full screen?

    Cmd+M apparently minimises the Window.

    You sir, are a legend. Thank you.

    However as a consequence of this success, I'm trying to work out how to:

    1. Leave the screen without having to Cmd+M (minimise) e.g. like a VMWare Workstation style Alt+Ctrl to remove focus
    2. There also appears to be a blue tint to the screen when the San Andres window is in focus - any ideas what this is?

    Thanks :D

    1. Not sure what do you mean exactly by 'leave the screen'. If you have Spaces (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1624) enabled that should take care of any switching needs.

    2. That sounds like related to OS X gamma setting. Some applications ( usually games ) enforce their own color profile even when running in windowed mode. I might be wrong here but thats what it seems like.

    I think what he means by "leave the screen" is get the cursor out of the window containing the game, I also have the same problem but it easier to get around it by pressing CMD+TAB, hold CMD, tap TAB for desired application, then release CMD. Hope this helps you.
