Full screen help(unable to full screen)

Postby Chresx » Thu Nov 06, 2014 2:03 pm

Hello, i was wondering if i could get some help from someone. My issue is my game is unable to go into full screen when it previously has been able to. ive gone through around an hour of troubleshooting and reading forums and now im just kinda stuck without being able to find an answer. Im sorry if this is in the incorrect forum i would really appreciate all help given though.


Steps ive taken so far:
Reinstalled Prison architect
Tried to 'force' fullscreen via preferences.txt
Tried launching in 'safemode'
Made sure no mods were installed (There aren't)
Disabled second and third monitor making sure that wasnt a problem
Disabled teamviewer due to past experience in other games not achieving full screen because of it

All drivers are up to date.

Specs:
i7 4770k 4.5 ghz
780 gtx
8 gigs of ram
840 pro 512gb ssd
Windows 7 64bit
Resolution 1920*1080

Not sure if helpful but

I read the post but didn't see the driver thing amount the steps you've taken.

What does the game do when you put it in fullscreen in the settings menu?
Perhaps you could try closing all your background programs and see if that helps

When i try and full screen the game it sometimes just resizes but doesnt actually go into full screen mode or it crashes with the 'ERROR : 'Abort : 'Failed to set a reasonable screen resolution' message

EDIT:

ive also tried running without non essential applications running with no luck. Ive been trying to figure out what changed since i was last able to run the game in full screen mode. No hardware or software changes have been made that would cause any conflicts. I think this may have been a result of the update (alpha 26)

you cannot change resolution and fullscreen at the same time, it will only set resolution then.
first change resolution to what it should be, apply and then set it to fullscreen.

I am having exactly the same problem as the OP and also the same behaviour when trying to change graphics-settings.

The game started in windowed mode from the beginning (alpha 28).

I am also searching for an answer.

Win 7 (64), NVidia-GPU, 8 gB
