Windowed Mode Emergency

I have issues with my screen - part of it goes bongo because of the humidity. How can I put the game back on Windowed Mode from in-game? I cannot find how. It's in the option screen at start-up, but I disabled it a long time ago... Thanks!

Not sure about from inside the game, but if you go to your AoD folder you should see the .exe launcher, and somewhere else in there is a second file which brings up the options screen, it is just called "Arsenal" and when you hover the mouse over it says "loader." You should be able to switch to windowed mode from there.

1st suggestion, in your AOD folder is an executable name = arsenal.exe

If you run that it has the Windowed Mode option.

Found it thanks. When I tried earlier on my own it wouldn't launch because I was in a cafe and it couldn't load properly because of a lousy internet connection.
My screen is amputated! But I'll manage.
