Full-screen problem

Hello everybody !

I post here to share my problem with you, and to know if it happened to somebody else. So, I installed Guild Wars with PlayOnMac on a MacBook Pro (Snow Leopard), and when I try to play in full-screen (1440*900, my native screen res), the game automatically goes back to 1440*878, and we can see at the top and at the bottom of the screen the OS X menu bars. I first thought it was an installation problem but the fact is that I managed to play in full-screen at lower res (I tried at 1344*840). I tried to desactivate some visual options but nothing changed :/

I don't understand why the problem only occurs at the max resolution. :( I would like to know your opinion about this issue.

I precise that I already had this problem with a previous version of PlayOnMac (I'm currently using the lastest one)

Thanks in advance !


PS : please forgive me for my English

how is the X11 icon in your dock ?

X11 is launched with it's lastest version (2.6.3) :/

In fact I've just noticed that I have the XQuartz icon, not the X11 one. Is it really different ?

It's important to have the XQuartz icon, yes

Try to install "OpenGL fix for OSX" (Install -> Other)

I installed this fix and it first didn't change anything. But I tried almost every resolutions and it worked eventually in 1440*900.

So mysterious.

Anyway, thank you very much !

I'm new to this forum myself, but usually if a topic has a check next to it, it is a resolved topic. It's better to repost a brand new question in your own topic so that an admin knows that your problem hasn't been addressed yet.
