Windows 7: DoomRL in fullscreen mode
« on: April 28, 2011, 06:06 »

Hail everyone!
I once read a topic in here where you were discussing about the impossibility of running DoomRL in fullscreen mode under Windows 7. That was pretty annoying but I just found a way to do it: you just have to disable your graphics drivers!
Found the solution here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/1441-63-full-screen-mode-programs

Hope this will help.

Ahaa, so that's why fullscreen does work when I'm in windows' safe mode. Interesting.

That is so extreme that it makes my suggestion of 'Linux' look tame by comparison >)

Yeah, this is why I just make the font bigger, although the one that allows size changes shows blood pools as rectangles.
