Fullscreen mode
« on: February 06, 2004, 11:35:57 pm »

I just installed the version 0.3, and it works perfectly while in windowed mode. However, when I try to switch it to fullscreen, it fails to work. The following lines are visible before the program terminates:

...
Initializing Screen.
Couldn't set 320x240x16 video mode: No video mode large enough for 320x240

Then it just simply quits.

My OS is windows 98 with a RIVA TNT2 graphics card.
Note: I have placed the -f parameter in the correct place, as all the other ones work...

Interesting.  Maybe the TNT doesn't support 320x240?  Try not giving it a -r option.

It could be your monitor too;  Windows has a habit of not allowing what it _thinks_ is a bad resolution to a monitor based on what the monitor is read as with the plug&play stuff.

I've got an NVidia version of a Riva TNT2 (32MB) and it works at 320x240 for UQM in win2000, win98 and linux.  I haven't checked 16bit colors, I usually use 32 or 24 bit.

Problem solved. It was simply a matter of switching to 32-bit colors. Now it works fine!
