0000807: Fullscreen doesn't work with non-graphic tilesets, switch mode failed (0.31.02)
I'm using PTTG's tileset. I have the .bmp in the proper folder as well as the correct init settings:

Full screen info.


I get a "switch mode failed" error message when running DF. It then reverts to windowed mode.
Install PTTG tileset (including proper init values).
Run DF.
Get error message.
I had no problems with this in 0.31.01.
No tags attached.

Did you install it in Program Files. If so, install it somewhere else and see if that helps. If not, please upload your entire DF folder. http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

I got the same error with your save, but upon checking, I get it with 31.01 too.

Okay, for me at least, it narrowed down to this:


Having anything other than that seems to cause "Mode Switch Failed" in both 31.01 and 31.02.

That's weird since


works fine in 31.01.

Confirmed that 800x600 works for me as well. For fun I switched the two and did 600x800 just to see if it was some calculation bug, but it still crashed. Very curious.

1024x768 works as well. Starting to smell a trend? Seems like it only accept 4:3 ratios

1280x720 also works, which means it accepts 16:9 ratios. It DIDN'T, however, accept 1280x960, which is curious.

"but it still crashed."

Crashed? If so, that's a completely different problem.

I'm marking this "fixed" on the assumption that it no longer occurs in 31.06. If that's wrong, feel free to reopen the report or PM me on the forums.
