      it's probably something due to depthbuffering on windows.
      one workaround could be to turn off and then on depthbuffering after going
      fullscreen: [fullscreen $1, depthbuffer 0,depthbuffer 1] in 'fullscreen'
      message box.
      other would be to bind some other key to depthbuffer on/off state to force
      rebuild when needed.

      Thank you Nesa,
      Well key sel 32 to toggle depth_enable $1 message to gridshape does actually something but does not bring out the same translucide effect (light of the video (torus)is leacking the letter thickness).
      In fullscreen mode the result of rebuilding the render scene brings the torus to front or back draw.
      When in window mode, asking to rebuild the scene with depth _enable switch 0/1 makes the effect of back/front draw or translucid effect expected.
      So is there something in the order of drawing scene wich is not the same in fullscreen mode than in window mode???
      Tried the patch with a second monitor the same behaviour...
      May be another idea Nesa?
      I'm running over tutorials again and will browse again thru blend mode stuff in forum...
      I'm still on system

      Not necessarily although the list og 3d objects will be rebuilt, so
      explicit draw order might not be the same. You can use @layer
      attribute to specify order.

      You've had some things mixed up: depth_enable and depthbuffer are two
      depth_enable should be kept at 1 in this case, but depthbuffer should be
      toggled and connected to jit.window, not the objects.
      More precise solution is what Westley suggested: @layer
      Here's your last patch changed a bit:
