#7300 closed feature request

'-F' not documented

Reported by: SF/logicdeluxe Owned by: SF/jamieson630
Priority: normal Component: --Other--
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


The force windowed mode option is not documented neither with '--help' nor in the readme.txt

Furthermore the '--help' should list the syntax something like this: "scummvm [options] game" or it consequently has to list all of the switches instead of only some of them, which would be of no much use, as they are still listed bellow with their descriptions.

maybe thats because it doesn't exist in the code? the code lowercases all single char params...

Wrong khalek. It *does* exist. The code which handles -f checks the original value to distinguish upper and lower case. -f and -F have opposite meaning (force always full screen, and force never full screen).

I tried -F before closing and it didn't work

Well take a look at index.php?func=detail&aid=779013&group_id=37116&atid=418820 , and also at gameDetector.cpp, line 401

As I get the same behavior, this option obviously does not work - hence a request for it to be documented is premature.

(In any case, it should be changed to --no-f / --no-fullscreen, in order to keep with our current naming scheme and documentation)

-F (and the new --fullscreen) have worked since 2003-08-11, per the fix for Bug #779013 ( func=detail&aid=779013&group_id=37116&atid=418820). They were documented in the README at that time, and I just committed the additional information for the --help output.
