A nice enhancement (or in fact, a new feature) that comes with the newly
version of Cafu is the revised video modes
on all platforms:
When you run Cafu in a window (that is, non-fullscreen, either by the Video
in the Main Menu
, or by using command line option
), you can press the
key in order to toggle to full-screen mode and back.
This kind of F11
-activated full-screen mode always uses the
desktop screen resolution and works both under Windows and Linux.
More frequently used though is the normal full-screen mode, where the display
is changed to the horizontal and vertical resolution specified in the Video
of the Main Menu
. The list of available video modes used
to be a fixed list of predefined modes, which was problematic whenever it did
not match the modes supported on the systems hardware.
This problem is now gone: The list of video modes is now determined
from the list of modes that the hardware supports
. In order words, if
your system has them, even "exotic" modes like 1440 * 900 pixels are now
automatically available in the Video Settings
dialog (and to any other
parts of the GUI system and scripts).
Depending on X11 server details, changing the display setting doesn't always
work on Linux, but we'd be happy to hear your test reports!
That is, please let us know which system you use, if the list of available
video modes is detected properly, and if activating them is successful!
