Can Fullscreen actually be full screen?

Post by emailmestranger » Mon Dec 19, 2016 9:14 pm

I'm running Lux 6.5.1 on OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, and when I go to the map menu and choose Fullscreen, it only goes a window of the maximum size in appropriate ratio. Is there a way to make it go truly full screen, where it gets centered, the dock is automatically hidden, and a black (or user-variable) background fills the rest of the screen? I'm thinking about treating the game like a movie file, where full screen takes over everything and blocks out everything not the file being viewed.

Technically it's possible, however tests showed that on Mac OS in practice it would lead to crashing. So 'full screen' on macs was made how it currently behaves
