Cannot change the game to fullscreen on an external monitor (OS X)




Cannot change the game to fullscreen on an external monitor. When I do that, the screen turns black (but I can hear the game music).

Running the game in windowed mode on the external display does work.

Running the game in fullscreen on the built-in display (MacBook Pro) does work.


Steps to Reproduce the Issue

* Launch the game from Steam on the external monitor

* The game starts in Windowed mode (I have configured the game to windowed mode with the built-in display only to be able to see anything)

* In Options -> Graphics select:
- Resolution: 2560 x 1440 (native resolution of the external display, though I've tried other resolutions and that fails as well)

- Check Fullscreen

- Close settings window for settings to take effect

-> Game window changes size to 2560 x 1440, but no fullscreen (Player.log says "Could not find requested mode.")

- Choose Fullscreen in the Pillars of Eternity menu bar

-> Changes to fullscreen but the screen is just black (Player.log says "Could not find requested mode.")


I've attached ~/Users/USER/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log
