X11: Full Screen doesn't work with Xinerama

Hi all,

I'm using scummvm 0.60 for Linux (tried the binary and the source) but I'm having some problems to put scummvm on Full Screen.

When I hit ALT-ENTER the program acts as if it will go to fullscreen (filling all the screen with black) but the game itsel stay at 320x200 (it doesn't get resized to 1024x768).

After this, I've disabled Xinerama on my XFree 4.0 and the fullscreen started to work as it would be, so I think the problem is a imcompatibility with Xinerama.

My SDL library was compiled with Xinerama enabled and all my others SDL-base apps are working Ok in fullscreen.

I think that the game may be confuse when it gets my screen dimensions to resize, because when using Xinerama my screen is 2048x768.

If you need more information just tell what do you need.

Xinerama works perfectly fine for me using CVS with fullscreen. Do you have 640x480 defined in your X config for whichever screen it is you're trying to fullscreen on?

No, I have only defined 1024x768. I'll try to add 800x600, 640x480 and 320x200. I'll post late if it works.

Any news on this?

In any case, I don't see how anything ScummVM does could cause such a problem...

comment:4 by SF/renatoriolino, 20 years ago

I've defined more screens resolutions on my X (800x600, 640x480, 640x400, 320x240 and 320x200) but still not working. If I comment Option "Xinerama" on my X the full screen starts getting really in fullscreen. I'll try to install another distro and use CVS version of scummvm to try to figure out if it is not something with my setup (but I don't think so because others SDL games are working fine with Fullscreen / Xinerama). BTW: I'm using the new XFree86 4.4.0.

Thanks for the help !!

You guys do a great job!!

Can you name an SDL game which does work properly? (Preferably an open source game.) At which resolution does that game run? Does it use the same SDL version?
