Sorry, if this has been asked, I didn't see it. Also, sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm a console gamer at heart and not great at configing PCs.

So I am using a PC, but playing on a 50 inch HDTV. I want to play in windowed mode and have the mode take up the entire screen. If I set my resolution to be 1920x1080 the window pretty much takes up the entire screen and looks good. The problem is, the text area, HP/MP/TP icons, etc are way too small. Not only that, they are right smack in the middle of the screen. If I do 1280x720 and full screen everything looks fine, but the game is no longer windowed, meaning I can't ALT+TAB, etc. And finally if I do 1280x720 in windowed mode, my window only takes up a fraction of my monitor.

Is it possible for me to have a windowed mode that is big enough to take up my screen like it does at 1920x1080, but have my icon resolution not be insanely small? Thanks for any help.

Not a stupid question at all. Some games allow re-sizable windowed modes, this game doesn't seem to support that at the moment. The size of the windowed mode is determined by the resolution. You can resize the UI slightly with your mouse, but it looks like it is only length and not width so it isn't a truly "scalable". Probably going to have to stick with full-screen at a smaller resolution like 1280x1024(if its a widescreen) and just try not to alt tab and crash it.

They WILL fix the alt tab direct X crash though so don't stress it too much.

I'm hoping for a scalable UI as well.

PS: By UI(user interface) I mean everything you(the person not the character) interact with on screen. Just in case you were unfamiliar with the terminology.

...Also I am extremely jealous of your 1920x1090 50 inch tv my God I want one. ^^
