Hi, has anyone managed to get full screen Opengl mode using SDL. also does anyone know of some sites that have either some examples or demos written with SDL. The doc`s that come with it are rather poor and hard to understand. Thx

There''s an OpenGL test program that comes with SDL (1.1.2 anyway, and I think the earlier 1.1 versions) source release called ''testgl''.

It can do fullscreen + OGL if you pass in the "-fullscreen" parameter. Or, edit the source to force fullscreen. It works with the systems I have tested it on.

Yes, the documentation for SDL sucks, but they are working on fixing that now...The best documentation for SDL currently are the various test programs that ship with the source release.
