#7353 closed feature request (wontfix)

Add support for multiple monitors

Reported by: SF/sd-snatcher Owned by: SF/khalek
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Hi all,

- ScummVM: v0.6.0 - Platform: win32

- instructions on reproducing:

Start the game on the second monitor. It will run just fine as a window. But, when you press ALT+ENTER to get full screen, it happily goes to the 1st monitor.

- Details:

My notebook supports the TV-out only as the second head. I can enable a "mirror option", but since it's done by the driver by copying every frame to the second head, the performance turns to be horrible.

I heard that many of the new notebooks behave this way regarding the TV-output, so this problem will become kind of "popular".

Thanks in advance, FRS

PS: I don't know if this also happens on X-windows, since I couldn't find a Linux-distro that works fine on my machine yet.

This is not a bug, it's a feature request. And strictly spoken, not a ScummVM feature you are requesting either, but rather a SDL feature...

I agree here. Modern setups let you define which resolutions/applications should be rendered on which monitor, and ScummVM has nothing to do it. I think this should be rejected.

As discussed this is outside the scope of ScummVM, closing.
