Just wondering if Windows supports the notion of opening a window in a resolution independent of your desktop.
I'm writing a 3D screen saver (openGL) and it runs fine except when Windows is set to a large resolution (like 1280x1024 or greater) in which case is slows to a crawl.
I was wondering if there is a way (without going to DirectX) of opening a full-screen window in say 800x600 regardless of what resolution the user has windows set to.
Possible? Or do I have to go to DirectX, or set the windows resolution and then set it back again on exit?
Any help appreciated, email reply preferred.
