okay, recently on this list it was said that SDL_WM_ToggleFullscreen() is
an X11 only function, and that toggling fullscreen can be done by re-calling
SDL_SetVideoMode(…) again with or without SDL_FULLSCREEN
it occured to me that SDL_WM_ToggleFullscreen() could be implemented like
this on non X11 platforms, but that is beside the point.
the point is that i can’t get it to work. if the first call to
SDL_SetVideoMode() has SDL_FULLSCREEN it works(fullscreen) and
everyone is happy, and the same if the first call is without the
fullscreen flag. that is until i use my own toggle function.
the screen looks the same, but many of my surfaces don’t draw
themselves and it generally looks random. some text i render on the
side of the screen looks like its
there but its not legible. i can’t understand it but i think that its
my mistake as to what i am doing?
this is the correct way to implement this, right???
the Fullscreen mode is only set with 1024x768, 800x600 width && height
and i can get SDL to use these on startup, basically i only encounter
on a change from fullscreen to non fullscreen.
any suggestions would be helpful
i’m using the prebuilt version of SDL for windows and dev-cpp.
