Re: Forces of Darkness - BBCSDL version

Richard Russell
 

The latest addition to FODSDL is a Full Screen option; this is activated by setting 'fullscreen 1' in the Config.txt file. It works on all the supported platforms, with the exception of Android of course - on which it always ran 'full screen' anyway! However it does increase the likelihood of crashing the Raspberry Pi because of apparently running out of graphics memory (I'm sure it shouldn't crash so badly; this is presumably an RPi bug).  The trick for making it work Full Screen on a Raspberry Pi 3 seems to be to run it directly rather than from the IDE. So for example run it using this command:

Code:
BBCBASIC/bbcsdl FODSDL/Fod.bbc 
(adapt the command to suit your installation directories, of course).

The new version may be downloaded as FODSDL.zip as before.
