Losing focus in Full screen mode, resets resolution to attached display resolution in Windows Standalone build game

Windows Standalone



Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 3Workaround is possible

How to reproduce:
1. Download attached project and open "Test" Scene
2. Make sure settings in Player settings are: D3D Fullscreen Mode: Fullscreen Window; Visible in Background: Off
3. Press build and run
4. In game notice actual resolution. Press "Set 1024x768" and then alt + tab. Then go back to game and notice, that resolution is not 1024x768 anymore

Expected result: Resolution should not change after losing focus
Actual result: When launching the game in fullscreen mode or changing settings during play, the resolution is set correctly. However, once the window loses focus (eg. alt + tab), the window will restore itself with the native resolution of the attached display
