don't start in full screen mode by default

Bug #135354 reported by Alex Muntada on 2007-08-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Freevial (Game)

Bug Description

Starting in full screen mode changes the default resolution on the screen, which is a bad thing if it is not expected by the user. Besides, changing default screen resolution may have unexpected results if the game was to finish abruptly (it was my experience when the game was hanged at searching a new question for category #1).

Therefore, I'd like to suggest that the game starts opening a window and let the user decide whether to go full screen or not.

Thanks for your bug report.

Note that at moment you can avoid that it goes into fullscreen automatically using the "-d" or "--debug" option.

Yeah, but the problem is that fullscreen is the default and IMHO it shouldn't.
