Its probly old news to you guys,but its new news to me. A set of functions called glutEnterGameMode();
You can go directly to full screen with no border, you can set the resolution, depth buffer, and refresh rate, with EASE. LONG LIVE GLUT, LONG LIVE OPENGL, LONG LIVE GLUT, LONG LIVE OPENGL. Oh yeah, DIRECT X SUCKS.
If anyone is interested in this I found a pretty short, but sweet tutorial here.

no, i get realy confussed reading other peoples code notations and such. I like to keep things simple, and I find that not many other people do to. Just my opinion. But I still thought it was cool.

Just want to point out that web page is using glut 3.7, some of the functions are not in early versions of glut.
Thought glut has been needing a better keyboard input, with 3.7 you have glutkeyboardupfunc.
