JPCT & multiple screens
« on: February 11, 2011, 11:04:34 am »
Hi everyone!

I'm currently trying to nail down a problem. So this is more a poll than a question... If you already know the answer though, don't hesitate!
Here it goes:

Problem:
The Driver reports to support only a single resolution. This is queried by:
Code: [Select]
FrameBuffer.getVideoModes(IRenderer.RENDERER_OPENGL);
Infos:
Resolution reported: 3000x1200
OS: Some Linux

The problem is not reproducible here. I requested more details and will post them here.
My guess (->resolution) is, that a dual monitor setup is used and jPCT/LWJGL has problems with it.
Can anyone using a multi-monitor-setup confirm/dismiss this idea? I, unfortunately still work on a
single headed system :-(

Thanks for your time!

PS: Note my clearly superior skill in using the bold-tag ;-)

More infos:

  • 2 Monitore connected to 2x GeForce 9500 GT
  • Linux: 2.6.32-28-generic
  • Ubuntu SMP x86_64
  • NVIDIA Driver Version: 195.36.24

jPCT prints:
Code: [Select]
Current mode:3200 x 1200 x 24 @50Hz
Driver is: unknown OpenGL driver on NVIDIA Corporation / GeForce 9500 GT/PCI/SSE2

Seems to be quite up-to-date. Not sure about the Nvidia-driver though.

[edit2:] translated to english...

Yeah, I noticed it was you!
That there's no solution in sight is sad.
I will go with instructions for X11. This not perfect, but at least I know what to blame.
