Problems with going between fullscreen and windowed modes.

Issue #127 resolved
Edward Hart-Davis created an issue

When exiting fullscreen with the option in the menu, the game simply goes white, the game continues to play music fine, and the commandline window continues to recognize my cursor entering and exiting the window, which still hides the cursor. The game goes correctly into windowed mode the next launch.

Similarly, when going into fullscreen with the option in the menu, the game simply goes black, and again the music continues to play fine and once I get out of the game by tabbing, I can close it from the taskbar.

Game still closes properly in both cases.

Both screenshots are from going from fullscreen to windowed mode.

    Nvidia surround? Software multimonitor emulation treating them as one screen? Does the issue recur if you disable it? Can you post a hastebin of your entire game log please with a graphics mode switch in it?

    Another thought - does alt-tabbing away and back fix it?

    I'm going to perform four tests, and give logs if anything unusual happens.

    Test 1:

    With Surround, going from Windowed to fullscreen.

    Result: game gives up and blackscreens, however new behaviour: if I tab out, then tab back it displays a single frame from the game, but the frames do not continue. I couldn't end it from the taskbar like last time (probably because of how I'm logging to a file); CTRL+C at the command prompt worked fine.

    Test 2:

    With Surround, going from fullscreen to Windowed.

    Result: same as before, but again can't kill it from the taskbar but CTRL+C from cmd.exe is fine.

    Test 3:

    Normal 1920x1080, going from Windowed to fullscreen. I am not 'disabling' Surround as an option as much as simply not using it.

    Surprisingly, I experienced the same issue, of the blackscreen, being able to tab out and tab back in to get a single frame.

    Test 4:

    Normal 1920x1080, going from fullscreen to Windowed.

    And it happens to be the same as with Surround.

    I'm going to do another 2 tests with the 'Surround' option completely disabled to see if it makes any difference.

    Test 5:

    1920x1080 without Surround enabled in Nvidia Control Panel, going from Windowed to fullscreen.

    The blackscreen then single frame persists still.

    Test 6:

    1920x1080 without Surround enabled in Nvidia Control Panel, going from fullscreen to Windowed.

    Again, the same.
