Hi everyone, I'm having a problem with resolutions in Java2D. I'd like to do a fullscreen game, but I'm having some serious problems with Java not handling alt-tab properly. More often than not, the game crashes. And even if it doesn't, it's so slow that you might as well think it's crashed. Sometimes it crashes even when I change the resolution. When I googled around, I found lots of bug reports mentioning this, but they where several years old and mostly regarding the 1.4.0-ish versions. I'm on 1.6 now, and I still have these problems. Is there any way to work around this? Or is it supposed to work fine now? Any help is appreciated. Note that fullscreen is usually not a problem, but changing the screen resolution to 640*480 is. Thanks for reading.

I am indeed.
As I said, I can switch to full screen with no problems.
It is the changing of screen resolution that is very risky and unstable.
