#7300 closed enhancement

'-F' not documented

Description

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 https://sourceforge.net/tracker/
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
(http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?
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.
