I have tried this on both my Windows XP box as well as my brother's Windows 98 box. The XP is running a GeFarce 5200FX and the 98 is running a GeFarce 4. On both, when running windowed mode, I get everything I should expect. Fullscreen mode, however seems to find video modes that are incompatible. Im trying to find out what version of GLFW im using here... uh... Well, the documentation revision is 1.3, but I think Im using GLFW 2.3... Not sure.
Anyways, I havent tried messing with the video mode stuff, I figured it should have worked right off the bat. I will play around with that, but I want to know if there's anybody else out there who has come up with a solution (or had the same problem)
