How do you exit the game on full screen mode?

I see no way to do it. Thank you.

Edited to add: Never mind. I looked in tech issues thread and it seems there isn't a way which is stupid.

I messed around with the full screen settings and now it will let me close the game on full screen.

I hit Escape on my computer and it led me to a window which asked me if I wanted to exit.

Hey there metmichallica,

As MrsK80 mentioned, the game can be exited by pressing the Esc key to bring up a box that will ask if you'd like to quit the game. Confirming there will exit the game. Hope this helps out!

I am playing in windowed mode. It has an x to exit out of the game, but other than the menu exit button at the top it is full screen.

Hi there metmichallica,

In either windowed mode or full-screen mode, the Esc will bring up a box in the middle of the screen asking if you'd like to exit the game.

If instead there's trouble keeping the game out of full-screen, I can provide some tips there too. When I took the game out of full-screen and then hit the Options button, it maximized the game on my screen. This was able to be resolved by adjusting the Resolution at the bottom-right of the Options menu until the window was the size I wanted.

Hope this helps! Feel free to PM me if there are additional questions.

You have to pause your game in order to be able to press ESC to quit. Go into the settings menu and click on pause.

I have been able to hit ESC without the pause to exit. I am in Windowed mode.

I can exit the game from either full screen or windowed mode without pausing just by clicking "ESC" and choosing "yes" I want to exit the game.

Oh lort. "ESC" was the first thing I tried, but apparently I was hitting the button too quick or too soft or something. I'm not new to computers, I have no idea what my problem is, lol, but as long as I press it firmly, the exit window comes up. D'oh!
