Summary0000091: Windowed Mode Fails on different grid setting
DescriptionWindowed Mode displays a blank screen on startup. Setting to [PROMPT] or [NO] solves this as I get a "Mode Switch Failed" and it claims it is running in Windowed Mode, however it is actually running in Fullscreen Mode and runs just fine.

I haven't tried running in smaller Windowed modes.
Steps To ReproduceThese are the altered init file settings:

(if set to [NO] or [PROMPT] I get "Mode Switch Failed" and get dumped into windowed mode)


Full screen info.

Are your graphics drivers up-to-date?

Are you still getting this in the new version, 31.03? [^]

Well for one thing, your GRAPHICS_FONT there, should just be FONT, if you're playing with [GRAPHICS:NO]. And if you're playing with [GRAPHICS:YES], then the relevant resolution parameters for windowed mode should be GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDX and GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDY

"Mode Switch Failed" comes from when it tries to set your monitor's resolution to something that it, or your video card, doesn't recognize or accept (1280x1008 here). And since it fails to change the resolution to what's set, it's probably just keeping the resolution as what you have it at already for the desktop, which I'm guessing is likely close to that. Since when you're doing it fullscreen, it's setting the resolution of the monitor to that setting.
