This program is obsolete!

Please use ICU Windower instead.

Yaaa.. aw, need admin permission to run. >.<
Well, if I ever get the chance to be on an admin account again, I'll get it to run as an invoker.

Alright everyone! New release (two actually!)

Earlier today, I released LEGO Island Windower V1.2, and I just released V1.2.1. I've fixed up a bunch of code (not that it was buggy, it just could be improved), and I've changed most of the text which tells AppName and AppVersion. I also added a compiling guide, and some LEGO Island quotes. ;)

@Segatendo Sorry buddy, but I made a version that didn't need Admin access, and it would not work. You'll have to convince your Dad to log into the Admin account and you can make it run as an invoker. I did I best I could, but I couldn't around that. :(

Well, convincing isn't easy, which is why..

Well, if I ever get the chance to be on an admin account again [aka it doesn't get logged off], I'll get it to run as an invoker.

but thanks anyway.

Tried asking your Dad if you can run it as an invoker? Explain to him what it does (show him jamesster's and my video if needed), tell him it won't run on your user because it needs admin access, and have him leave it logged in so you can make it run on your name. I've done this myself, and it worked most of the time. ;)

The thing is though, my dad doesn't trust things/people from the internet. His internet motto (well, not really) is "Nothing is free". So he wouldn't trust the program otherwise unless he didn't know it was from the internet.
Once I tried to get him to forward a port so I could host and play a game with Addict who I know so well.. it didn't turn out well.

Tbh I don't even think he knows about running things as invoker (what this does btw is allow me to run programs that would need permission to start up such as Cheat Engine and Fraps as a standard user).

It isn't working for me. It acts like it does, but then it's still fullscreen.

Thanks for this, I always wanted Lego Island to run in Windowed Mode! Thanks le! :love:

Hm... do you get an error message from LI, Windows, or the app? What version of Windows are you running, WinXP, Vista, or 7? X64 or x64? Have you tried a reboot after running it? (You shouldn't need to do that). Can you locate the LI registry string in regedit, run the app, and see if it changes it? I might have to add a flag in order to make it work.

You're welcome, ModdedLego! Let me know if you have the same error as Lair reported above. I can fix it, but if there is more than one error report, I'll know something is indeed wrong and not Lair's PC messing up. :)

It acts like it works. But then LI is still fullscreen. It's installed on a 7x64 machine. I'm thinking it might be because it's not installed in program files.

It shouldn't be an issue if you installed it to program files or not. It doesn't even look for or modify that string. Can I send you a quick test build to see if it works?

Alright everyone! LEGO Island Windower V1.2.2 is released! Most notable in this version is that I've swapped the Windowed and Full Screen buttons, so Windowed is now the default option. I removed some dead code, and attempted a fix at the bug Lair reported (he already tested it and it did not work, but it may work for someone else).

Also, I got my brother rioforce to make me a new app icon. How's this look to you?

He drew the face texture with his tablet, and slapped it on a minifig model he created (but we cheated on the hat. :P).

Get LEGO Island Windower V1.2.2 on the topic post!

I can report that it doesn't work for me either, I even checked the registry to make sure fullscreen wasn't enabled (which it wasn't). If it makes a difference, I am not using the masterpiece version, but the original and am using Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium. Not even running in Ramp Emulation works.

Edit: Restarted computer and it works (got an error when trying to start with ISLE.exe, but works with LEGOIsle.exe).

Yea! You got Admin access! :D

Alright. Win7 x86, original release, works after an restart, but only with LEGOIsle.exe, Ramp Emulation.

You do understand that this only makes LI run in windowed mode, and doesn't fix the graphical/audio erroes that come up when running it, right? It will act like jamesster's video did. Lair didn't understand that, and I'm just making sure you do, since I haven't really made that clear.

LEGOIsle.exe is the main EXE, and Isle.exe is just a launcher, right? The game might have to be loaded directly to make it work.

BTW, are you able to make it go back to full screen via the tool? I asked someone else to test it (they use Win7x64), and it won't go back for them.

I'm working on V1.3 Beta 1 right now, and I'll try to get it out soon so you and everyone else can test it. ;)

I don't think I needed Ramp.

Yeah, I know.

Probably.

Yes, it works.
