- I want some clarification regarding building for Windows and choosing fullscreen mode. Which is the 'correct' choice, and why?
Fullscreen Window (Borderless)
Allows for quicker process focus switching (alt-tab) but will consume slightly more resources as it is still rendering the desktop. Normally users with multi-monitor setups or users who need to alt-tab to other applications (web browser, music player, etc) prefer Fullscreen Window (Borderless).
If profiling reveals the game is approaching its limit for VRAM, then Exclusive Fullscreen mode may be better, allowing users to gain a slight performance improvement.
-window-mode with either
borderless values when launching the game, e.g.,
-window-mode exclusive. Users in Steam could set this up. Alternatively, a custom launcher could be created to allow users to select this setting before launching the game with the custom launch options.
