SDL_SetVideoMode Error

Reported by: SF/heyzoosesmind Owned by:

When first running scummVM, I tried resetting the resolution to full screen. After the size didn't change at all, I just ignored it and continued playing a game. But the following day, I tried to reopen scummVM and I recieved the following error:

WARNING: SDL_SetVideoMode says we can't switch to that mode!

The program then terminates. I'm assuming this has to do with the resolution changes I tried to make the previous day. I tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it, but the error message still remains. Is there any way to reset the display settings back to it's default so that scummVM may run again?

This is not a bug.

Either remove fullscreen=true in c:\windows\scummvm.ini or run scummvm with --no-fullscreen command line switch and then disable fullscreen in options dialog.
