Problems with FULLSCREEN mode

Post by Lillolullo » Tue Nov 17, 2015 11:00 am

Hi guys,
i'm new here but I have a question...until now I worked very well with QB7.1 but now I have a lot of problems and errors when I compile in qb7.1....with qb64 seems to be fine....but only in windowed mode, in _FULLSCREEN mode it's sucks...why ???
where am I wrong ???

With QB7.1 or 4.50 I work always in full screen, 'cause is native, not in qb64....what can I do ?

Please help me..
Thanks to everyone

In QB64 you may not need or want fullscreen modes as windows can be made to any size in any mode with room for extra text or graphics.

_FULLSCREEN may not work well with all computers as you probably found out already. ALT + Enter still works to go full screen or windowed when desired. I had more problems with it on XP than Windows 7 or 10. Try different modes to see if that helps.

What OS are you running? XP made full screen a challenge for my laptop. Try FS after SCREEN:

Code: Select all
