THAW Windowed Mode

Add a registry key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Aspyr/Tony Hawk's American Wasteland/Settings/
Name it Windowed of type DWORD value and give it a value.

To stop windowed mode delete the reg key you added.

Bumping this, telling people to stop expecting others to give you a code. Honestly, at least try.

FAQ.

Q. "What do you mean when you tell me to dummy a file?"

A. A dummy file in the context of THPS, is essentially a file with no data inside it, which forces the game to look elsewhere for retrieving it's data.
To give you an example of this, in THUG2, by default, the game will use qb_scripts.prx - if you edit a file in the scripts folder, the change will NOT take effect if you haven't dummied qb_scripts.prx!
This is because the game is reading qb_scripts.prx for retrieving it's data, instead of the scripts folder, reading from qb_scripts is also faster, that's why it's in my opinion reading from that by default.

If you want to make a mod, you need to dummy qb_scripts.prx. You need to make the game realize that you want it to read from the scripts folder instead. This is rather simple, you do this by simply creating a new .txt file, giving it the name qb_scripts.prx.txt, then you remove the .txt extension (show extensions in windows if it's disabled), and replace the existing qb_scripts.prx! Done! Now your game will run from the scripts folder!

Was reading the forums thought this would help explain the term dummy

Dummy as in having the appearance of being real but lacking capacity to function.
It's just that, a "dummy" file, nothing more than a blank file that forces the game to read from the scripts directory.
