No fullscreen on Fedora 31 w/ AMD video

I haven't run tdm for some time so I can't say for certain that's it's the video card change but I upgraded from a a Nvidia 1050 to a Radeon RX480 and now the game always starts in windowed mode.

The only REAL difference is the Nvidia drivers forced running in X while the open source Radeon drivers happily run in Wayland. 

What can I do?

Is there something similar to borderless gaming app but for Linux? In that way you can workround the problem.

I've run TDM successfully in fullscreen under Fedora 30, 31, and now 32 with an AMD Radeon RX 580 using X11.

I suspect TDM doesn't totally work under Wayland; personally I'm using X because of some other programs that got very angry when running under Wayland, so I had to switch back to X to get things working. It should be easy to toggle over to using X; you can just switch it on the login page with the little gear icon.

Do you happen to have a multi-monitor setup?  For me, I had to go into the system display settings and disable my second monitor when playing TDM fullscreen. Otherwise it goes into a weird windowed mode. Doesn't necessarily sound like the case here, but just in case that tidbit helps someone else...

Here was my workaround:

 

Basically, set it up as a windowed app sized to your native resolution and then tell your window manager to make it borderless.  I would expect this to work on Wayland as well, unless there's another issue preventing it from running even in windowed mode there.

I started working on modernizing the fullscreen code but have been busy with real work lately.  Since we have a workaround I wasn't going to push for a change in 2.08 and instead was planning to take the time to make sure the reworked code works out-of-the-box in both Wayland and X.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
