Hi,

i am a bit confused with the screen setup.

I just want to make a desktop game for now, that has a full screen
resolution of 640 x 480. Do i always need to set virtual resolution?
Or what is the best way to go here?

thanks

Wait, what do you mean by, "fullscreen resolution of 640x480"?

I initially thought you wanted fullscreen mode but now I'm just confused.

I read this documentation already before. The problem is that with SetWindowSize you can not set the full screen resolution. So, i guess SetVirtualResolution is a must have for full screen games that run in a resolution different from the desktop.

EDIT: Yes, i mean 640 x 480 not just full screen

Another problem:



With this i get a full screen in 640x480, BUT at the top is
a border area that i don't want! It's like the window border is
still there, but invisible. Is there a way to get rid of this?

The way I understand it is that the window size has nothing to do with the resolution inside the drawing area. You use SetVirtualResolution to set the resolution the game is drawn at.

That code works fine for me.

Now it works for me, too. After i compiled it 2 or 3 times more it suddenly worked as intended. This is funny Is there some hidden confiq file that wasn't updated?

Now that I think about it, window_position.dat in the write folder could be the culprit. You could try deleting it if you run into that problem again.

directory:
C:\Users\-YOUR USERNAME-\AppData\Local\AGKApps\-YOUR PROJECT-

Other than that, I don't know.

Thank you!

I think the problem was because of this file!
So in the end, it's a feature and not a bug.
Only needed to know that this file exits...
