> If there's no SDL_FULLSCREEN, there's "Can't get hardware surface" in stderr. However, when there are both SDL_HWSURFACE | SDL_FULLSCREEN, there's no "Can't get hardware surface", what means - video surface is in hardware. And even then, it still returns 0.
Doesn't that just mean SDL_SetVideoMode failed? Have you checked
SDL_GetError() in that case? e.g.:
if (screen == NULL)
fprintf(stderr, "Can't open video: %s\n", SDL_GetError());
