Display

Window Mode

Provides a template of modes or screen settings to display the game.

  • Full Screen:Fullscreen displays the game on your entire screen and hides your operating system interface. This may prevent your interaction with other windows, however, the project will run at a better performance.

  • Windowed FullScreen: Windowed Fullscreen displays the game in a Fullscreen resolution while providing the capability to interact between other windows or applications on your operating system interface.

  • Windowed: Windowed mode provides you with the capability to drag the edges of the window to maximize or minimize the window screen, and interact between other windows and applications.

Resolution

Controls the number of pixels that are displayed on the dimensions of your screen size. The supported Screen Dimensions include:

  • 1280 x 720

  • 1600 x 900

  • 1920 x 1080

  • 2560 x 1440

  • 3840 x 2160

Depending on your current Window Mode, this will have the following results:
  • Fullscreen: Resolution determines the GPU output resolution.

    Depending on your Graphics card and monitor screen size, this may result in a rendering display of black bars appearing on your screen.

  • Windowed: Resolution determines the size of the window.

  • Windowed Fullscreen: Resolution is inactive.
