Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Packaged game always starts in Borderless Window mode even after saving Fullscreen mod

Hello everybody,

I've been trying to package my game for final release, but unfortunately the Fullscreen mode does not stay.

All the other game user settings that are being changed stay the way they should be, but after closing the game in fullscreen mode and then relaunching it, it starts in borderless window mode, always.

This makes it impossible for someone to relaunch the game in fullscreen mode.

I am currently using Mathew Wadsteins Settings Menu from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_nCvY1OsdE

I've tried making my own from scratch with the same results.

I made a video of the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUzFAc2KU3g

The GameUserSettings.ini reports this: alt text Even though it should both be 0 after setting it to Fullscreen Changing the LastConfirmedFullscreenMode manually to 0 and then launching the game still starts it in Borderless Window mode.

To reproduce the issue:

  1. Create new project

  2. Create Widget with 3 buttons (Fullscreen, Windowed Fullscreen, Windowed)

  3. Create logic to apply & save after button press ^

  4. Create logic to load settings in Level Blueprint

  5. (Don't forget to add logic to your Character to create the widget and add it to viewport)

  6. Package Game

  7. Issue

Windowed mode and Borderless Windowed mode get saved and restored upon restart. But Fullscreen mode just gets ignored and put into Borderless Windowed mode always.

Now don't get me wrong, I love Borderless Window mode, but I can see that it can have performance issues on lower end devices. (Or if someone wants to set a different resolution than he is running on his desktop, which doesn't work in Borderless Winow mode as it is always using the desktop resolution)

I hope I have supplied you with enough information on the issue, please let me know if you need more!

Product Version: UE 4.19
