Some games launched in full screen mode will not run and show errors when trying to launch with DisplayLink software installed. This can also affect 3D benchmarking programs for example 3D Mark.
DisplayLink is aware of problems with some games in full screen mode, but there is no easy fix for these. One of the main problems is that games tend to use the graphics hardware directly in full screen mode, bypassing Desktop Window Manager (DWM). However this means that they bypass the DisplayLink virtual graphics driver and get confused when they try to use the graphics hardware and find DisplayLink also using the primary graphics card to render additional screens.
This is only in full screen mode, as in windowed mode the game goes through DWM and should function correctly.
DisplayLink recommend running games in windowed mode.
If you want to run games in full screen mode, DisplayLink provides a driver tool to temporarily disable the DisplayLink graphics driver to enable any games that show issues in full screen mode.
Note, do not try and uninstall DisplayLink software or update primary graphics drivers while the DisplayLink graphics drivers are disabled. Enable the DisplayLink graphics drivers before doing either of these tasks.
