    Default Windowed Mode

    Greetings!

    I have encountered one problem with NovaShell (Running Mac OS X with a 1024*768 resolution). You see, when I enter windowed mode, the bottom part of the NovaShell window gets pushed into unseen territory. I can not see that part unless I enter full screen once again (a bother, when one is editing scripts in a text-editor and reading a tutorial, among other things) or set the resolution of the program to 800*600. The problem with 800*600 is: Some parts of the editor are inaccessible, because they don't scale, but get cropped from the window.

    It's not a huge deal, but bothersome nonetheless.

    All problems aside, I would like to thank you, Seth, for creating such a wonderful tool to create games, it is the best I have seen, despite its unfinished state. My deepest gratitude for your time.

    Ah, I know exactly what you mean.

    You can run an .exe with parameters under osx, right? If so, try:

    novashell -windowed -res 980 700

    or so, and it should pop up in a window that will fit on your screen, while still showing all (most?) of the editor GUI when you pop that up.

    This is, sadly, not possible. To my knowledge, at least.

    Is it possible to implement a resizing function for the main screen? That would be most handy.

    Edit: One thing that I didn't mention: OS X has .app, not .exe . .app being short for Application. Just for future reference.
    Excellence guaranteed..!

    Mac OS is based on an Unix system.

    So you must have command line tool or something else where you can pass args to your application compiled file (novashell here).

    Search, you will find
