#7768 closed feature request (outdated)

Support for external full screen

Reported by: SF/dotnetcarpenter Owned by: csnover
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


When full screen is true on a laptop with an external screen, nothing is shown. The scummVM launcher is capable of running in full screen mode on a external screen but not games. It seems that scummVM forces Windows to only use the embedded screen no matter what I configure Windows to do. It's a shame because that removes the option of playing games on projector as well.

Could support for external full screen be added?

Tried with Full Throttle. OS: Win7 64bit

There is nothing in ScummVM that prevents fullscreen on a second monitor (I’ve done this recently), so this is probably some old SDL issue.
