Running a ~600x400 game fullscreen?

Hello, I have a game called Outwars and it runs at 600x400 .. or 640x480.. something like that. And when i first played it, it was full screen. Now when i play it my screen is mostly black with a 600x400 box in the middle where the game is. Iv tried to get the game to run as windowed, and i cant get that to work. Can someone help me make the game fullscreen again?

Iv been looking. in the game it has "run 640x480" and thats about it. And in the configuration mode on the .exe file iv tried to switch that to "run at 640x480" but that did nothing also.

also, my screen only goes down to like 800x1000 or something like that

Hmm, I can't think what else to check. If I had the game i'd have a look. Hopefully someone may be able to help

Just found something by accident lol

Right-click the shotcut and select for the game and select 'Properties' and see what (under the Shortcut tab) the 'Run' section is set to.

I've just run the game & it plays in full screen every time

I've even played with the settings, including using Direct Draw and still nothing.

I'll keep playing
