How do I get Full-Screen?

Post by Echo » Sat Jul 28, 2012 6:08 pm

How can I make the window full-screen for my game? Plus I don't want to change the resolution just make it full-screen mode ( just cover the rest of the screen with black, not a window ) and not in just an over-sized window if possible.

My resolution is 800x600 for my game, my PC supports 1366x768. (O_o)

Change:

Code: Select all

t.screen.fullscreen = false
to:

Code: Select all

t.screen.fullscreen = true
in the conf.lua.

Also, if you supply 0 as width and height, it'll use whatever the monitor can handle (so 1366x768 in your case). Note that if you do this, you must check what the width and height are inside your game (with love.graphics.getWidth andlove.graphics.getHeight) to make sure everything fits on the screen.

I want to use F to go to fullscreen mode and W to go to window mode.
I tried this code inside the conf script. The game does not start.

Code: Select all

if key == 'f' then
          -- fullscreen mode
	  t.screen.fullscreen = true
	  end

if key == 'w'
           -- window mode
           t.screen.fullscreen = false
           end
Is their a way I can control the fullscreen mode in the conf script?

Forget coding in the conf.lua!

There are only configuration settings.

For your problem, insert the following code in the main.lua or expand your love.keypressed-function.

Code: Select all

function love.keypressed(key, unicode)
     if key == "f" then love.graphics.toggleFullscreen() end
end
See:
https://love2d.org/wiki/love.keypressed
https://love2d.org/wiki/love.graphics.toggleFullscreen

These sites help to understand. But for you as a beginner, reading some tutorials and the wiki would be better. ;)
