Borderless Window Mode / Full Screen Window Mode.

Post by Kane » Tue Feb 24, 2015 8:55 am

I'm here to formally request a feature that is very minor and quite easy to add. I find that when I stream or record gameplay I like to play Window mode so I can easily tab in and out of the game. Depending on the recording software it sometimes is also required to play in a Window mode.

Thanks.

Edit: Here is an idea on what to look for: ALLEGRO_FULLSCREEN_WINDOW

Oh, yes please!

I almost always play in a mode that allows for easy alt+tab due to often having some other thing running on the other screen. When game is at fullscreen then doing anything in other usually causes issues or at minimum causes the game to minimize.

Factorio currently uses the ALLEGRO_FULLSCREEN_WINDOW option.

Full-screen is currently fullscreen windowed borderless.

Confirmed haha.... I never bothered trying because 99% of the time they don't offer borderless without idk what you call it hardware fullscreen...

I feel like an Idiot for never trying.

fullscreen borderless has some advantages, but also some disadvantages. Because it is window, rather than a fullscreen application, sometimes it forces always on top mode.
