Window / Re: 0 fullscreen modes available on 14inch macbook pro

That seems rather odd. Do you get any Desktop Modes at least?

I get:

3024x1964 - 32 bpp

by running sf::VideoMode::getDesktopMode() (which is the correct resolution of my screen).

I'm running a minimal example:

#include <vector>
#include <iostream>

#include <SFML/Window.hpp>

int main()

    // Display the list of all the video modes available for fullscreen
    std::vector<sf::VideoMode> modes = sf::VideoMode::getFullscreenModes();
    for (std::size_t i = 0; i < modes.size(); ++i)
        sf::VideoMode mode = modes[i];
        std::cout << "Mode #" << i << ": "
                  << mode.width << "x" << mode.height << " - "
                  << mode.bitsPerPixel << " bpp" << std::endl;

    sf::VideoMode defaultMode = sf::VideoMode::getDesktopMode();
    std::cout << defaultMode.width << "x" << defaultMode.height << " - "
              << defaultMode.bitsPerPixel << " bpp" << std::endl;

    sf::Window window(sf::VideoMode(800, 600), "My window");

    // run the program as long as the window is open
    while (window.isOpen())
        // check all the window's events that were triggered since the last iteration of the loop
        sf::Event event;
        while (window.pollEvent(event))
            // "close requested" event: we close the window
            if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)

    return 0;

I'm able to run any window by creating a specific VideoMode, the only thing that doesn't work is fullscreen.

Window / 0 fullscreen modes available on 14inch macbook pro

Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I'm having a problem with fullscreen mode on the new 14inch macbook pro. If I copy and run the code from the SFML videomode documentation ( https://www.sfml-dev.org/documentation/2.5.1/classsf_1_1VideoMode.php#a6815b9b3b35767d5b4563fbed4bfc67b ) it returns a vector of size 0.
If I try to manually force fullscreen video mode with
mWindow(sf::VideoMode(), "name", sf::Style::Fullscreen)
it crashes with error:

The requested video mode is not available, switching to a valid mode

Process finished with exit code 139 (interrupted by signal 11: SIGSEGV)

I've also tried with a specific VideoMode resolution. Is it possible that no fullscreen videomode is available? Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
