Is there a chance we could get an option to have the game start in maximized windowed mode?
Better yet, have it remember the location and size of its window when it closes and launch as that? :P

Yay! Thank you! I'm playing a railworld game right now so the train-related improvements are much appreciated.

Thnx for the update.

full screen by default.
Why was that changed? Did test results from steam point out, that more then 50% of the users, uses full screen as default playing method? And so the change was done, as the intention to minimize the amount of settings to be changed before a user can play there game.?

I would like this too, becayse se it is quite annoying to change the window position every time you start.

First thing I saw when I loaded the game after the update, I hate full screen, was about to rant. But changed the setting back to windowed, exited the game, loaded the game, and things were back to windowed during the load. Ok, I'm good. :)

0.15.19 doesn't seem to be available for MacOS via the update server. Steam downloaded the update properly and I can manually download 0.15.19.

thanks for the update!

Yes! I find it somewhat inconvenient to have to manually maximize the window each time. Please just have the program remember your settings and launch that way so that the Fullscreen People can have fullscreen, and the Windowed People could have their window at whichever size they prefer. :D

I am experiencing significant slowdown with this build. Whenever I enter or exit map view the game pauses for about 5-10 seconds, renders, then pauses for another 5-10 seconds before becoming functional again.

I immediately noticed the slowdown on this build specifically. 0.15.8 was fine, but after the upgrade to 0.15.9: performance problems with entering/exiting map view.

I'd be happy to submit a report, attach a debugger, or whatever you need.

[EDIT] Log file attached (it's very small).

[EDIT 2] I think this might actually be due to running maximized. I've returned it to windowed mode and haven't seen the slowdowns since. I checked the minimum system requirements and amazingly I only have 256MB GDDR3 but I've been running on max resolution. I'm turning down the resolution in addition to running windowed and hopefully I can continue playing this wonderful game. :-)

I also agree with these. I would like to offer two comments:


1. Many graphics cards perform better in full screen mode than windowed mode. I believe this is due to less housekeeping required in full screen.

2. Windows users can edit the properties of the shortcut to Factorio.exe to have the game start maximized. Doesn't work when the game restarts after self-updating, works otherwise.

As previously mentioned, Factorio remembering the window size and location (as well as if using full screen mode) is the best solution. The only time it may not work is if the windows screen resolution is changed.
