Can't run in full screen on Mac?
Seems to just ignore whether or not I check the full screen box and uses windowed mode. Quite annoying. I want to play this game in its full glory!

what version of OSX are you using?

that should definitely work. could you have a look at the game's config file (~/Library/Application Support/Gaijin Games/Runner2/game.cfg), and post what it says for "Fullscreen" and "Resolution"?

Fullscreen = yes
Resolution = 1920x1080x32

Yet it still starts up in windowed mode, in whatever I set the windowed size to. Hm.

Edit: I am using an external monitor, and it starts up in full screen fine when I disconnect it, so it looks like that's the problem.

ah, thanks for helping to track that down! we will look further into this once we have taken care of some more pressing issues that people are having.

I have exactly the same issue!

I've just tested the game on an iMac hooked up to a TV via display port -> HDMI, and was able to get it running fullscreen on both displays without any problems. to help me figure out what's going wrong for y'all, can I get some more details about your setups? specifically: are you using multiple monitors? how are your display(s) connected to your computer?

I'm on an Early 2011 Macbook Pro hooked up to an external monitor with a mini-display port > HDMI cable (it's my primary monitor, the laptop stays closed).

Edit: Just tried it with the lid of the laptop open. If the displays aren't mirrored, the game will open in full screen on the laptop screen. If they are, and I match the desktop size to the laptop's display, it opens in full screen. But if I match the desktop size to the monitor (so it's full resolution), it will open in windowed mode. My monitor is an Asus VS238, in case that helps.

Edit 2: By the way, thanks for helping!

I have tried with a mac mini connected to my TV with a HDMI cable, and also with my macbook pro (late 2011 I think) connected in my TV using a mini display port to HDMI adapter.

it's the same for me. :(

Is there any follow up on this?
I have the same problem on OS X 10.11.3 with an external monitor connected via a Thunderbird <--> Display Port Cable.
