Oh, hah, I don't think I've EVER used fullscreen in EE before, but I just went to check this one for you:
Fullscreen works fine, 2880x1800F is a slideshow, but 1440x900F 1280x800F work absolutely fine.

But, um... how does one enable SDL GL?

Go into display settings (inside Eternity, same place where you'd change resolution) and page-down (Fn+down) until you see a SDL field where you choose between software and GL 2D. Then restart Eternity.

Also I assume you have a discrete GPU. It's possible that the NVidia card is too lazy and lets the retarded Intel chip do the work. You may need to go into system preferences at power saving settings (light bulb) and deactivate automatic video card switching. Or have an OpenGL (for example) application running at the same time to wake up the GPU. I don't know whose fault is for this laziness: SDL's or Apple/Intel/NVidia's. I guess I can place a dummy OpenGL control at the main window to wake up the NVidia, but it's very hard for me to test it.

NOTE: this version of Eternity is modified by me to support resolutions higher than 2560xsomething. For GPL compliance I provided a patch that shows what I changed, inside "source diff/" folder from the DMG.

Also, I wish I knew how to make fancy DMGs the kind with artwork. But I'm not a graphic artist!

Oh man, what a nab. I didn't notice video settings go for more than trhee pages.

I forced OSX to use the dedicated GPU, switched to GL2D, set resolution to 2880x1800F...
it looks and works marvelous!

Does it work fine even if you don't force OSX to do that? Or will you eventually get to see the entire display stretched beyond your monitor?

That's exactly what happens if I leave GPU switch to automatic - I believe it's still 2880x1800 but not hiDPI, so it expects 4 times the screen size.

(I'm using gfxCardStatus to make quick GPU changes)

Some will be happy to know that EE works in Homebrew! Be sure to compile GCC4.x (do NOT use the apple Clang!) and set your CC flags accordingly. Works in Mavericks with no problems.
