FM12 on Mac: How do I hide the dock in windowed mode?

Recommended Posts

So, in FM10 & FM11 I was able to hide the dock by going to the application and clicking 'Show Package Contents' and editing the info.plist by adding the following command line.

<key>LSUIPresentationMode</key>

<integer>4</integer>

which I found from here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/153632-Tip-Macs-and-Using-full-screen-while-windowed

But I am unable to do this with FM12...with previous versions, I had the DVD disc but I've finally succumbed to using Steam and trying to do it just doesn't so anything.

Also, when I am in windowed mode, I am unable to stretch the window to fit my screen...is there any way around either of these problems?

I like to be able to check the internet and my emails whilst playing and pressing command+tab to minimise FM from full screen to windowed is a constant hassle so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not an expert on these things so maybe someone else may be able to help you better.

Personally I always have my dock on auto-hide anyway, which means I can play in windowed mode stretched to full screen.

The info.plist change should still work for you. The game is in the following location to use the 'Show Package Contents' option:

User > Library > Application Support > Steam > SteamApps > Common > Football Manager 2012

Thanks :)

the problem is that since the newest mac version you do no longer see your application support ...

You can change it though to show application support. Google about showing it on Lion, I came across it the other day but dismissed it as I don't have Lion yet

Open Terminal, type

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

and viola, the Library folder will become visible in Finder><username> again, thus giving access to Application Support.

I cannot get this to work for me. Can someone PM or post their working "info.plist" file so I can see what I'm doing wrong.

By 'Dock', do you mean just the Mac's own Dock, or am I missing something? IF it's the system Dock, you can hide/unhide it with a simple keyboard command: Cmd+Alt+D
