Could we get the game to truly run in "true" full-screen mode? because as is now, hot corners of macOS settings interfere when you bring the mouse to the corners of the monitor when playing the game. Would be nice if it could be fixed :>
Thank you all for keeping one of the greatest Mac games ever created, alive.

The problem with "true" full-screen mode is that it disables Cmd-Tab. To make that work, we have to detect it ourselves and have custom code to get out of full screen and then back in, when we become active again. I mean, it's doable since other games do it, but it would be a big change to do.

There might be some third-party utilities that can disable hot-corners when a certain app is running that you could use.

thanks for the reply. So big change for you guys, not worth it for a future update? id easily switch out command tab for true fullscreen :)

I mean, "worth it" is an interesting question. It's a mac-specific change and I'm the person that's been working on that code historically and currently I don't have much time to work on Myth and am not super motivated by the feature request since I personally don't use hot corners. And we don't have any active development on another update at the moment either. So probably unlikely in the immediate future, so if it's important to you, probably best to just use a third party utility to disable them while Myth is running.

I one hundred percent understand and respect that. I thought maybe it was a few minutes of work to release a patch or something that could fix that. I'm not a coder myself so I have zero clue :)

I just found this project and have installed the latest 1.8.4 build announced here on a Mac Sudio (M2 Ultra) running macOS 14.3.1. I'm running this on a Studio Display at 5120 x 2880. I've tried both windowed and fullscreen options, but both have a similar issue with regard to the start menu.

I was able to play through the tutorial and things generally seem to work. However, the issue I notice is that the start screen/menu seems to be clipped on the right hand side. I'm missing the "II" in the "Myth II" artwork of the menu and I'm only able to see menu down to the Preferences options in the list of menu options. Is this a known issue? If so is there some fix that I need to apply?

Thanks, removing the Myth II Interface (800 x 600) plugin from the plugins folder as was suggested in that thread seems to have resolved the issue I was having.
