Folks,



I run dualhead, either 2x1920x1200 or lowresx1080P. *Invariable fedora games try

to start up full screen and completely mess up my displays. *Sometimes it is

quite a challenge to get back in to a state where I can restore my settings

without logging out and logging back in.



Please make your games start in windowed mode. *Let the user choose later to go

fullscreen. *Or make your came properly save the xrandr state and restore it,

including dual head. *Don't EVER go to mirror mode.



Two sample great games that just don't do full screen dual head smart:



extremetuxracer

angry dwarves



Oh, and can't full screen be just one head? *The video players can do it. *How

about the games?



Thanks guys!



Keep the great games coming.

I had the same problem with nvidia binary drivers and twinview; it went away

editing xorg.conf, adding the resolution needed by the game to MetaModes, ie

MetaModes *"1680x1050, 1680x1050; NULL, 1024x768"

to have the game requesting 1024x768 on the right screen.
