Now when I start Gamecenter it is not just that little app that opens.. it is ALWAYS full screen!!!

I don't need a full screen version of Gamecenter in my face that I have to shrink back down every launch and then have it go full screen the next time I launch it again.

It's the only app that " Forgets " its settings and I cannot not find a preference settings to make it stop.

Anyone else have this issue and found a fix?

i don't have that issue.. and i don't want to make it full screen in case i can't get it back.. but you could: rt click the shortcut and select properties>> shortcut tab>>Run:  Normal Window...  might help..

This^^^.... It sounds like a windows properties issue... Not WGC itself...

No but I have other issues like having to go into the armory or naval battles twice because the first time all I get is the spinning ball . So I have to close it then do it again and then it opens on the second try every time .

Nah.. that's a different setting.. min max normal.  If it's on normal it shouldn't open Maximized every time. Changing this does nothing.

Thanx for the looking out though.

ok yup i tried it .. did nothing..

but i can reproduce it always opening in full screen...

but i can also fix it... it always remembers what size it was when i close it (not click X, but actually exit from the system tray)  do you have it set to start when windows starts?  Maybe try disabling that, then make sure it is not full screen... and close it from sys tray see if it retains it next time you start it..

if it ain't this, the only other thing i can think of is registry stuff...  the latest patch didn't patch wgc... looks like the last wgc update my system shows in feb 3rd

I can't even log in under either account on either machine since Wednesday... or was it Tuesday. 

I'll wait until this weather event is over.  Glad you folks are having fun, though.

Nope.  Don't have time for that stuff.
I'm not going to screw around..  If it doesn't work, it doesn't work...
As for the suggestion to take my laptop to a friends' house and try it.............  I don't believe I should have to do that.

If I can't enjoy a game with a 'normal' connection at home...  then to hell with it.
Everything else works.

a vpn just changes the route you take to the server it is still a normal connection.  if there is an outage somewhere between your isp and chicago...  vpn will just allow you to try a different route to the server.

but hey its 10 minutes you won't ever get back...
