Heya, hoping someone can help me, Trying to Run the old classic game Dreamweb thru DosBox, It runs fine, sound and all except for one thing, the game screen is drifted over to the left of the screen, meaning about an Inch of the Game screen is cropped off. Does anyone know why its doing this? is it fixable? the game works fine in all other aspects.

Yep, I am running full screen, I've also played with all the screen settings in the monitor, and my other dos games are lined up on the screen perfectly, which is why I'm so confused... I've included a screenshot to show you what I mean, You can see the text is cut off...

Thanks!!! The CVS version worked like a charm, no more cropped screen 😀 on that note, I also got Xcom: UFO to work on it! although it seems rather slow and stuttery, but I have'nt really fiddled, thanks again!

Actually, the Windows version still has speed-sensitivity issues (just not as bad as the DOS version) and still has "Drop-to-Desktop" issues.

Part of the reason some have been trying so hard to get it running in DosBox is because the DOS version (when run in a speed-controlled environment) appears to be more stable.
