  1. Message causing shrunken playing area


    I am running Windows 8.1, version 6.3, build 9600. I am using a Toshiba laptop, non-touchscreen. I have been having this problem since I started using Minesweeper several months ago but it got worse recently, maybe a week or two ago.

    Whenever I play expert or medium mode, a large message appears across the top of the screen saying "Drag the mouse to scroll the board" and "Use the mouse scroll to zoom in and out". The message takes up a good portion of the screen and there is no way
    to get rid of it. It causes the board to be crammed into the smaller remaining area making it difficult to play. Recently, the board has gotten even smaller making it even harder to play. The message does not appear in Easy mode, and the board is nice and
    large there.

    :)

  2. Shrinkable games

    on checking out the Mange storage area of options I’ve found that there is a shrinkable games option and a Forza 7 shows that it can be shrunk by 28.6 GB. Anyone know what’s actual happens if I do shrink?

  3. Hdmi and Dvi problems

    Are you connecting an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One to the TV?

    On some TVs, if an HDMI-connected device is causing a shrunken output, there should be a TV setting that adjusts "overscan", which adjusts the size of the output on the screen.

    Outside of the map on Zoo in Wager match

    That's silly.

    Yes Gameshoes, all Wager modes have shrunken map boundaries, due to there only being a max of 6 players.

    Yeah, the sparda lunga requires vlad the impaler coins I think. The DLC brought a lot of those

    the mystery of the shrunken heads

    Yeah it is disappointing, the only option (if you really really feel like getting everything) would be starting all over. Totally not worth it, Ubisoft should release an update with more .
