Several display options change how this function behaves:
· With ALLEGRO_SINGLE_BUFFER, no flipping is done. You still have to
call this function to display graphics, depending on how the used
graphics system works.
· The ALLEGRO_SWAP_METHOD option may have additional information about
what kind of operation is used internally to flip the front and back
· If ALLEGRO_VSYNC is 1, this function will force waiting for vsync.
If ALLEGRO_VSYNC is 2, this function will not wait for vsync. With
many drivers the vsync behavior is controlled by the user and not the
application, and ALLEGRO_VSYNC will not be set; in this case
al_flip_display(3) will wait for vsync depending on the settings set
in the system's graphics preferences.
