I am running one of the test applications in Lumberyard (it has a cylinder, box, and cube that fall), and have modified the system_windows_pc.cfg file to open the game in full screen (r_fullscreen = 1) at 1280x1024 (my computer’s default) resolution. Every time that I launch this standalone game, the screen goes dark momentarily before showing up, as if I were switching video inputs. I have tried this on multiple screens and different resolutions, and each time I have done this, this still happens (i.e. it looks like I am changing display settings through Windows, with a good 2 seconds where the screen is dark).
I am looking for a less obstructive full screen mode, about as seamless as pressing F11 on the keyboard, or launching a game in Unity in full screen. Has anyone else had this problem/know of a solution?
I need this because I was planning to have this game launch from a menu of sorts, and the jump between full screen and not breaks the immersion.
