Hi Ted,I bought this some years ago and loved it, I liked to play this on my second monitor while working during the cold seasons. :) Now that I have it here on itch I wanted to use it again, but after installing the Beta_v092_Win I cannot make it work correctly on my second monitor. If I double click on the main monitor it toggles between fullscreen/windowed correctly, but if I drag it to the second one and double click it again it moves to the main one for a split second and then returns to the second one but stays centered in the screen in the small windowed size. I then cannot move it around until I double click again (I guess it's in "fullscreen" mode but with an incorrect size?).

Hi, thanks for letting me know and for the detailed description! I just checked and it fails on my machine now too, although in a slightly different way.. I guess something changed in Windows, so I'll have to do it differently. I'm looking into it now, and hope to fix it for the Out-of-Beta Update (v1.2.2) which is coming soon!

No problem, and thanks for looking into it! :)

I fixed the dual monitor issue, and it'll be in the v1.2.2 Update :) I'm wrapping that up now.

Hi Carles, I wanted to let you know I fixed the secondary screen issue in version 1.2.2 and it's available on the Itch App and the Pixel Fireplace Downloads Page. Let me know if it fixed the bug you were having.

Hi Ted, thanks for letting me know! Sorry to be a downer but unfortunately it seems it's still not working correctly for me :(. I've removed the previous version and installed the latest one you have uploaded (tried via the Itch app and also via the downloads page). After starting it, double clicking to switch to windowed mode, dragging the window to the second monitor and double clicking there again, it switches to fullscreen mode but back on the main monitor. It doesn't want to stay in the second one.

hmm dang! A few questions:

1) What OS version is your machine running?

2) Just to make sure, can you see "v1.2.2" on the Pixel Fireplace title screen at the bottom left?

1) I'm on Windows 10 Pro build 19042.685, the latest update it finds at the moment.

2) Yes, v1.2.2 on the corner.

Okay, that's what I'm on too. Would you mind trying out a debug version? It'll show the variables used for the displays and game-window xy positions, and sizes. You can email me at tedmartens [at] gmail [dot] com

Also, before going fullscreen pixel fireplace checks the top-left corner of it's window to determine which display to go to, so if the window isn't all the way within a secondary display it will go to the main display or whichever display that corner is within. It defaults to the main display if the top-left corner is outside of all display borders as well. Make sure you've dragged the window all the way to your secondary screen before trying fullscreen. (I might change it so that it checks the center of the window instead of the top-left corner)

No problem, I've sent you an email. :)
