SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake – How to Play in Windowed Mode

Play the game in windowed mode, despite the option currently being broken.

Guide to Play in Windowed Mode


So, right now, the windowed resolution option is broken in the game. Thanks to THQ providing debug symbols I believe I’ve already figured out why this happens, but that’s besides the point. Point is, it’s actually still possible to play in windowed right now!


  • Right click the game in your Library.
  • Go to “Properties”.
  • Under “Launch Options”, paste this (without the quotes):
    • “%command% -ResX {WIDTH} -ResY {HEIGHT} -ForceRes -WINDOWED”
    • And replace {WIDTH} and {HEIGHT} with, of course, your preferred width and height.
  • The game may still put you into fullscreen when you start, but you can simply press F11 to get out of it.

For example, I am launching the game with “%command% -ResX 1600 -ResY 900 -ForceRes -WINDOWED” to launch the game in 1600×900.

And that’s all!
