Sorry. I don't know more mechanisms about it. But the full-screen mode with DirectX is lighter than a simple resolution change process like The Big Box.
As far as I know, there's two kinds of fullscreen, exclusive and borderless.
Exclusive takes over the whole monitor, some may say performance is better in this, it changes the monitor resolution according to the game resolution.
The drawback is that it's slower when you need to switch between applications, it also may mess with the size and position of other applications, meaning you will have to resize and move everything where it was...
Borderless fullscreen is just a window that completely fills the screen, you can quickly switch between applications, change the resolution (sometimes refresh rate, and bit depth for ancient games), it's the only method capable of splitting a game through multiple monitors.
Either way, I don't think the performance hit would be enough to be noticeable in Fusion games, since those aren't that heavy to begin with...
In intensive 3D games the difference is negligible, 1-4 fps difference, in some borderless can also perform a bit better, but it feels like it's with the margin of error, the fluctuation could be because of background processes.
hi, several times i download a mfa on the forum, i modify it juste a little and the first owner cant't open it (newest version) even if we have both the latest version, i think it's because i have 2.5+ version, and i think it's when i use qualifiers, (even if i use standart qualifiers)
could you teach me what i can do to evoid this problem please?
@fredetmumu if you include anything exclusive to a DLC or exporter, a person who doesn't have it won't be able to open.
2.5+ exclusive features that could cause this are: Child events, Qualifiers on Global Event Editor, Custom Qualifiers
To make a file that should open for anyone, you should not use these.
thnaks for your answer, i didnt know for the Qualifiers on the global event editor
@Perry it will, like I said, you just need to not use exclusive features. Try opening an old mfa and save a new file from it, you'll see that it can be opened without the 2.5+.
When I say exclusive features, I mean anything that goes in the frame or event editor. Things like Profiler or DX11 will only be disabled, but it will still open.
I make examples for people on the Discord server all the time, people would complain if the mfa wasn't working...
All the times I try to build an .exe file, my Avast Antivirus: detects it as a Win32:KeyLogger-gen and remove the file.
A couple of days ago I've signaled it a s false positive, but nowadays is still detected as a virus.
It's a mess.
