Cutted screen in full screen mode
« on: August 31, 2012, 13:12 »

Hi, I just installed DoomRL, first of all: a great game! I just wanted to have a look at it this afternoon and now I realized I played it for 4 hours, thank you for that.

Now my problem: I want to play this game on my tv screen but I have a problem with the full screen mode. When I enter full screen I can't see the whole screen, it looks like something like a 800x600 resolution in the game but with a 640x480 resolution set to the screen and the game gets cut on each side. I hope you understand what I mean. I tried different settings for full screen width and height in the config file, 640x480, -1x-1, 800x600 and even 1080x810 since 1080x1920 is the original resolution in windows, but nothing helped.

I am running windows 7 64-bit. I hope you understand what I mean and can give me some hints on how to fix this. Thanks.

Hi, welcome to the forums!

I'm assuming there isn't any trouble with other games when playing on the TV? In my experience, making some TVs cooperate with a computer is a terrible ordeal =)

Switching to windowed mode would be a good temporary solution, though not perfect...

Yes, DoomRL is the only game with this problem, every other works fine.

Sure, window mode works fine, but a little too small to play from the couch and I don't like it to see my desktop around the window.

Works on a TV here :/

Have you tried moving the window onto the TV and Alt-Enter?

Doesn't help.

The game is centered, so the position is correct, it is just bigger then the screen.

What is your native TV screen resolution?

Are you sure you didn't swap width and height when entering in the config file?

Yep, I'm sure. I swapped them first, if you do so DoomRL doesn't even start. I set them correctly then and I got this issue.
