    Re: full-screen mode

    Yes u r write the graphics r better and run faster in fullscreen mode.

    to make full screen if u r using glut all u do is add glutFullScreen; in at the initialisation part of your code.

    however it is abit harder if u r using win32 in which case i sudgest u look at the first tutorial on the nehe site http://nehe,gamedev.net

    glutgamemode() is good for this! it changes the resolution AND fullscreens it ... I like this better than a fullscreen at 1280x1024...

    You can put glutFullScreen(); in the main loop too.
