I am working on the Pacman game and I want it to run in full-screen mode.

I get the screen graphics device first and then from that device I can get the available display modes (on the specified computer):

import java.awt.GraphicsDevice;
import java.awt.DisplayMode;

// .
// .
// .

DisplayMode[] dms = graphicsDevice.getDisplayModes();

And my question is:
Can I set another display mode on the specified computer although it is not available on that computer (e.g. the display mode is not contained in the "DisplayMode[]" array)?



I am quite sure that you can, the question then is, however, "Will the monitor/graphics card support it?" And the answer to that is "Probably not".
