Folks,

I run dualhead, either 2x1920x1200 or lowresx1080P.  Invariable fedora games try
to start up full screen and completely mess up my displays.  Sometimes it is
quite a challenge to get back in to a state where I can restore my settings
without logging out and logging back in.

Please make your games start in windowed mode.  Let the user choose later to go
fullscreen.  Or make your came properly save the xrandr state and restore it,
including dual head.  Don't EVER go to mirror mode.

Two sample great games that just don't do full screen dual head smart:

extremetuxracer
angry dwarves

Oh, and can't full screen be just one head?  The video players can do it.  How
about the games?

Thanks guys!

Keep the great games coming.

I had the same problem with nvidia binary drivers and twinview; it went away
editing xorg.conf, adding the resolution needed by the game to MetaModes, ie
MetaModes  "1680x1050, 1680x1050; NULL, 1024x768"
to have the game requesting 1024x768 on the right screen.

Try it in F12. If you aren't using an nVidia card, try it without proprietary
drivers first.
wine isn't on the games spin, so if you want to try it on a live cd/dvd, don't
use that one.
