changing resolution in fullscreen
does anyone have a framework for fullscreen OpenGL or a tutorial that shows how to do it properly? nothing i try works. could it be because i have an eMac?

Um, yep.... can't quite remember the details, though.
Talk to MonteBoyd
I use RezLib to do my resolution switching, link from the downloads section: http://www.idevgames.com/content/download.php?id=100, works fine on my eMac.
ok thanks. itd still be nice if i didnt have to use an external library, i know i must be forgetting some small little detail.
try messing with the color and depth buffer sizes. these have cause a black screen for me in the past, especially on different machines.

i did try changing the color and depth sizes, but still nothing. i have my NSOpenGLView instantiated(?) in interface builder. i know (i think..) that this type of context cant enter into fullscreen. so i made a backup of my project, and redid it so that the context is created at runtime, but still no working fullscreen. im using an eMac, i thought i heard somewhere that eMacs have a pixel format bug, but im not sure. does anyone know if this is true? thanks.
just wanted to point out a stupid error on my part, before any of this misleads any newcomers. most of the code i posted probably would've worked (aside from the ones where i said i received "invalid drawable") if i were calling my initGL after entering fullscreen. i think the most relevant part of the initGL code is gluPerspective, but im not sure. anyways, thanks for all your help and sorry for all that other nonsense.

blb Wrote:Has for me for months (including two minutes ago). If I capture, hide cursor, and switch mode after instantiating an NSOpenGLPixelFormat, I receive the fun "invalid drawable" error. As soon as I rearrange the code to capture, hide, and switch first, all works.Just echoing this for people searching for solutions in the forum archives-- the order of operations here does make a difference. If you start in a 32bpp mode, create a 16bpp pixel format, and then switch to a 16bpp mode, attaching the context to a fullscreen drawable will fail (invalid drawable.) It seems like it should work, but it doesn't.
On the other hand if you switch modes first, it works fine.
