    So I read this on the 2K site: Resolution in Sid Meier's Starships

    Is this for real? Is this what gaming is coming to? That developers have gotten so lazy about creating a full screen or full screen windowed mode that lays over top of the task bar that they force their users to turn on and off auto-hide every time they play the game? And every time your mouse hovers near the bottom of the screen is pops up annoyingly?

    I've been playinc Civ games since Civ II... seriously what is this crap? I haven't even played the game yet, which may be amazing, but this is just the stupidest thing I've ever seen a developer do. Please tell me I'm missing something obvious.

    I can't actually even drag the window to change the size. I get two options, 1) tiny unsizeable window, or 2) full screen with the task bar showing

    Well, I assume this is a side effect of making the same game for both PC and mobile iOS (ie iPad) since we only see this issue with the mobile games like Starships, Ace Patrol etc but not with the full PC games like Civ5 or BE.

    Agreed. A proper full screen mode is a reasonable request.

    And a Main Menu/Exit game button.
