Weird issues when changing display mode

    Updated to version 0.19 on Windows 7 and I'm having some strange issues that I didn't have in previous versions regarding display mode.

    There are 3 modes to choose from: windowed, borderless, and fullscreen.

    Windowed is the one that works alright. It's a little bit cut off at the bottom by my taskbar (by a few pixels), but it doesn't really block any buttons, so not an issue.

    Borderless is where it gets weird. Turning this on makes it the window borderless, but in previous versions, where it would fill up my screen, now it just leaves a blank space on the bottom and the top of the window. Images are attached below. Check out how you can see Firefox's top bar and my task bar at the bottom.

    Fullscreen - when applying this display mode, the screen gets extremely wide and low res, like I applied it at 640x480 (I didn't, it just automatically set itself to that.) I can change the resolution to 1600x900 after I make it fullscreen, so not too big of an issue. What is a big issue though, is the fact that every time I alt-tab to switch to another window, then alt-tab back, the game switches to Windowed mode. It definitely didn't do this on older versions.

    On older versions, borderless would fill up the entire screen (hiding windows behind it) and allow me to alt-tab between the game and another window without any issues. Fullscreen would glitch out a little when alt-tabbing into it, but would be otherwise fine, it would stay in full screen.

    Any ideas on how to make it act like before? Am I just missing something?

    Borderless issue and fullscreen res issue is fixed after 0.19.1. Fullscreen still switches back to windowed mode if I alt-tab though, is that an issue or intended?

    We have not fixed that yet. Right now it's the same behavior as always.

    Thank you. Is it planned to be fixed in the next version/hotfix? Or still being investigated?
