Has anyone experienced any problems with going into Fullscreen exclusive mode from Java 1.4 on any particular graphics chipsets.

Basically I would like to know if there are any chipsets that don't work with Java's fullscreen mode (and if so, which ones..)

It would be acceptable to only enter fullscreen, and not change the resolution, but we do want to enter fullscreen mode, and I don't want to avoid limiting the number of computers our program can run on as much as possible.

I'd appreciate any comments on this,

All I can say is, I havn't come across any Windows machines that won't switch to fullscreen.

Though that isn't so amazing, i've only tried machines with Voodoo 2, Voodoo Banshee and GF2GTS in them :p

Java Fullscreen in the Sun Win32 JDk is built on top of DirectDraw.

So as long as you don't have broken DirectDraw drivers you should be fine.

It *may* migrate over to using Direct3D at some point since MSFT is folding DD into D3D but the guys who actually work on it (like Dmitri and/or Chet ) could tell you more about the future of those APIs then i can.

Got a question about Java and game programming?  Just new to the Java Game Development Community?  Try my FAQ.  Its likely you'll learn something!
