Glad to see that standard adopted. It's an old windows/windows explorer function. I have never run TS full screen because it locks up to much real-estate. Might just try it now.

Now, that's useful information! I've suggested in a support ticket the need for a supplemental manual. The one we currently have is minimally okay for some of the basics, but I, at least, would appreciate more detailed information, such as a list of function key results. Perhaps we should start assembling our own based on information in posts (verified, of course)?

I just had a follow-up idea about my user-complied manual suggestion: how about opening a "User's Manual Suggestions" subsection in the TSW forum? Anything not directly pertinent to the overall topic could be eliminated by the moderator.

I made the last 4 posts I submitted here as Stickies so they will stay at the top of the list. I was going to combine them into one post. Starting a new forum would be kind of redundant since this is the HELP forum. So how about we create a User's Manual by the Users?

I believe ALT + ENTER also does the switch.

I noticed the aspect ration changing: my 1980*1200 screen is 16:10 in full screen, after switching to windowed mode, TSW is in 16:9. Switching back to full screen, the aspect ratio stays in 16:9, making the speedometer of the HUD slightly elongated in the vertical.

There hardly are 16:10 monitors produced anymore, but the same could affect users of 21:9 "cinema" monitors. When confirmed, I'll add it to the list and report the findings.

Excellent idea -- wait -- wasn't that mine? Anyway, it is an excellent idea and I'm looking forward to seeing it fill up, starting with items already scattered around. E.g.: F3 to turn on/off fps counter; F11 to change display setting (full screen / windowed). 2D Map: brown line indicates switch frog direction (looks black to me, but anyway it's dark).

I volunteer to compile and maintain this community manual, actually, before reading this already created one. I will pick up posts from this forum as well as from other sources, rewrite them and create a guide.

I now only publish it at my own website, because it would add quite a lot of overhead for me to post each update at all forums. I don't mind deep links to the manual, but because I can host the actual manual at Google drive I will need to find out how I can support deep linking, while hiding the actual not so stable file URL.

Later the guide will be available at some community sites.

Your manual is very helpful, Jan. I've visited Holland twice, but never got around to renting a bicycle and exploring all of those steep hills ( !*roll-laugh*! ), so I appreciate your biking site as well.
