So I bought Alpha Centauri from GOG and, though I am well aware of the means for forcing applications to go into windowed mode, they just aren't working. This is important because I never played the game before, so I need to be able to switch over to the manual for reference. My issue is simple: can I force Alpha Centauri into a window? If so, how?

  • What version of Wine are you using? – John Scott Dec 24 '14 at 2:38
  • I am using version 1.6.2. Yes, muru, that is what I mean. – readyready15728 Dec 26 '14 at 16:42
