Tropico 5 Windowed Mode Does Exist - Hidden Under Island Beuracuracy

Windowed mode does exist! It is the last resolution option!

Tropico 5 has just released and fans are rushing out to build their island dictatorships. While there are many improvements to the Tropico 5 UI, there are some elements of the UI that are a bit hidden.

At first glance I thought that Kalypso had forgotten a Windowed mode, which would be a real shame because sometimes I like to browse the web while waiting for a building to complete or just to assuage my ADD tendencies and call it "multi-tasking." However, windowed mode does exist as is shown in the image below.


How do you find this little gem? It is the top most resolution option. Yeah. That's completely not obvious.

    Windowed mode should be pretty standard IMO. It makes for easy changing between gaming and scouring the internet for useless info.
