Create a file named player.ini in your Syberia folder with the contents:
800 600 16 0 BaseCMO.cmo
The only value you should ever edit in the ini is the 4th integer (0=windowed mode, 1=full-screen mode). The first three values (Horizontal resolution, vertical resolution, bit depth) are hardcoded so they will be ignored anyway, the last one (name of the main game file) should be left alone.
For Syberia 2, the contents of player.ini should be
Once again, 0=windowed mode, 1=full-screen mode, leave the second parameter alone.
Thanks for this.
Does anyone know how to use this without the need to change resolution of the desktop to ugly mode? Syberia 2 works properly in a window using this tip at 2560x1600; but not Syberia, which still fails with the 'The 3D rendering engine could not be initialized' message. ;-(
