Unable to run in Full Screen in Windows 10

Postby tomaustin700 » 26 Jun 2015, 19:10

Hi,
I have recently upgraded to the insider preview of Windows 10 (from 8.1) since upgrading I am unable to play the game in full screen, whenever I try to run the game I get the error "Can't initilize display, check your video driver version". I am running the latest version of my graphics card drivers so it's not that (AMD). The game was working perfectly before I upgraded, might it be an issue with Direct X 12? Have you got any suggestions to get it working?

Thanks

tomaustin700,
it may be because AMD drivers are still incomplete... Or maybe they're dropping support for DirectX8 (which would be a bit strange).
So except waiting for new drivers, there's not much to do... Maybe try compatibility modes to see if it changes anything.
Possibly, try to change to fullscreen with the Configuration utility, instead of within the game, maybe it'll help.

I've tried compatibility mode and also tried changing display settings using the configuration utility and still nothing.

So only thing you can do is wait for new drivers ; meanwhile, you can activate the borderless mode by setting Window to 2, in Tennis.ini (or the .ini of your profile), under [Display], like this :
Window = 2

Thanks, I will try that and let you know how it goes. Hopefully this isn't an issue in a month when Windows 10 ships.
