Default Re: Dual-head with TwinView but need fullscreen for games

This is a known problem; it has to do with the way that the SDL library interprets the twin-view information.

I work around the problem by hitting Ctrl-Alt-Minus to switch to a non-twin view mode prior to starting any games in full screen mode. Its a bit irratating, but it works.

When I get a driver that is stable on the NForce2 and GeForce6800U, I'll have a go at fixing the SDL libary; however, a just barely stable system doesn't make me keen to start messing with this stuff - what would I be debugging? The driver? SDL? Who knows!
