Script to Enable Full Screen mode for MTG Arena on MacOS

I re-wrote the "./fix-mtga-arena-full-screen" script to dynamically get the screen resolution instead:

$ cat fix-mtga-arena-full-screen 
#!/bin/bash
FULLSCREEN_MODE=0
DEFAULT_WIDTH=1440
DEFAULT_HEIGHT=810

# this forces Arena into full screen mode on startup, set back to 3 to reset
# note that if you go into the Arena "Graphics" preference panel, it will reset all of these
# and you will need to run these commands again
defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Fullscreen mode" -integer $FULLSCREEN_MODE


# Dynamically get the resolution instead
#max_resolution=$(system_profiler SPDisplaysDataType |grep Resolution | egrep -o [0-9]+)
resolution=$(osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to get bounds of window of desktop' | cut -d, -f3,4 | egrep -o [0-9]+)

if [[ "$resolution" =~ ([0-9]+)[[:space:]]([0-9]+) ]]; then
  WIDTH=${BASH_REMATCH[1]}
  HEIGHT=${BASH_REMATCH[2]}
else
  echo "no match found"
  WIDTH=$DEFAULT_WIDTH
  HEIGHT=$DEFAULT_HEIGHT
fi

if [[ "$1" == "override" ]]; then
  WIDTH=$DEFAULT_WIDTH
  HEIGHT=$DEFAULT_HEIGHT
fi


defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Width" -integer $WIDTH
defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Height" -integer $HEIGHT
defaults read com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Width" 
defaults read com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Height" 

How to play MTG: Arena full screen on a mac

1- By default MTG:Arena will not run full screen on a mac. You may only run it in a WINDOWED mode.

2- Most macs, when you go into the options for graphics in Arena do NOT have an option for full screen.

3- The hacks online to go into low resolution just double your screen resolution and do not actually take you into full screen.

4- So here's how I did it ( using these instructions -> https://gist.githubusercontent.com/april/ef679cf5719cc5a2ba6a55da20869ffa/raw/c5a3cf5e6dcd7e22f962d067f0747de19e085392/arena-macos-fixes.sh ))


# this forces Arena into full screen mode on startup, set back to 3 to reset
# note that if you go into the Arena "Graphics" preference panel, it will reset all of these
# and you will need to run these commands again
defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Fullscreen mode" -integer 0


# replace 1792 and 1120 with your full screen resolution, or any scaled resolution your display supports
# to find the scaled resolutions, go to System Preferences --> Display
#defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Width" -integer 1792
#defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Height" -integer 1120

defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Width" -integer 1440
defaults write com.wizards.mtga "Screenmanager Resolution Height" -integer 900

The "too privileged to wear a mask" girl

I can't post this on Facebook because it has too many words in it that would trigger FB's censorship bots.

Tonight, before going to the gym, I stopped at the 7-11 to get an energy drink.  I'm wearing my mask as always.   I see inside at the counter are three blonde girls.  They look like they are about to hit Fort Lauderdale to party.  

One of  the three girls is not wearing any mask at all.  She's blonde with big _____, so she doesn't have to play by the rules right?  Female + blonde = privileged right?

Anyhow, she sees me in my mask and nudges one of her friends.  I'm waiting outside the door now.  I'm literally waiting for them to leave before I will enter.

The door opens, and the three walk past me and the one without the mask says, "I really like your mask."    GAME FUCKING ON — I think to myself, and quickly reply, "I wish you were wearing one."

Now at the time I said it I didn't think of it as a slam — as if to say "you are ugly, I wish were you wearing a mask" but I guess the other two girls took it that way and bust out a laugh as soon as I said that.
