Windows 10: Can't get fullscreen to work

Postby Forklift17 » 2019-10-06 @ 22:27

I've looked at several tutorials for how to get DOSBox fullscreen. I have tried multiple settings for fullresolution, windowsresolution, output, etc. in the config file. Nothing I have tried works. The best I can do is to get a large window that only has a tiny portion in the middle for DOSBox, and the rest of the window is black.

I know that most DOS games have a 4:3 aspect ratio, and this is fine, but this does not describe my problem.

How do I enlarge DOSBox to fill most or all of the screen, not just that tiny portion in the middle?

That makes the window go big, but all the fonts are still tiny. The rest of the screen is just a thick black border.

change output to opengl in the .conf file. Also set aspect to true if you don't want the original 4:3 screen stretched on a widescreen monitor.

I fixed it. I was commenting out stuff with #, but it seems you can't do that on the setting lines. I set the fullscreen resolution to 0x0, and now it's truly fullscreen.

Thanks for the help, everyone!
