You can view SWGCraft with /Browser

But not SWGAide, atleast not without another monitor connected to the same PC (Like I use) or another PC alltogether.

Am I missing something?

I have used windowed mode for the most of three years, I use it to tab between different characters (GCW city battles) and to view this site and swgaide.

if your asking to view it on screen while ingame, well ...the game screen is real cluttered already, where would you place the 'extra' information?

.
If it's stuck :x ...force it ...if it breaks, :shock: you needed a new one anyway :)
Characters(Legends): HydroTek, Ditty, and Talo ..give a shout if you see me in game

Hydro nails the reply, only in "windowed" game mode it s possible to view any application while playing.

Many of my friends play in windowed mode and are fine with that, others and myself Alt-TAB out of game and to the application. A matter of choice really.



Then, the question is why you ask, is there some special information you want to carry into game? Anything is possible, for the the impossible you need to wait somewhat, so go ahead and elaborate on why you ask.
