  • Ticket #12613 – Description

    initial v1  
    1313There are more restrictions depending on hardware..
    1414
    15 Granted, for newer cards there will be less restrictions than for older cards... Still, the way Be did it is the only theoretically correct way!

    1717Also:
    18 Since no mode is set before the hooks are requested, chances are some cards don't export their hooks, as no set mode is not supported by definition. Even if they do export the hooks, overlay is not guaranteed to work correctly since it does not know if the mode will violate it's hardware properties.

    2020At least the VIA driver blocks the hooks (which is correct) because of this.
