Classic Games widescren resolution

Hi all...what's up ?
So i'm here to ask a question.
Is there any software that patch classic games widescreen or can we make a widecreen patch for our games ?
I know universal widescreen patcher is one,but it have little games to patch widescreen.
I have tarzan pc game,which i want to play in widescreen mode.
But it only have 800x600 resolution.which looks crap

I know it's very old
but i got it now.Thanks For all u'r help :)

Edit-plz edit thread title there is spelling mistake in widescreen

Cool Sir, I do not know if the games supports it but it is worth a try. Search in the game directory for the user cfg file. Right click and open with notepad. Find the resolution 800x600 and change it to what you want. Then save and close it.

If that game is as old as I think it is, then there isn't likely much you can do. They don't list it here,

but they have a wealth of info on how to get widescreen out of a lot of games.

Cool Sir, sometime the files are game.ini

Does the game have one of them? If so the same thing I posted for the .cfg might work.

Sometimes you can fix it or patch it. Check out Widescreen gaming forums.

But in all honesty, on those older games your better off running it in the native aspect

You can either use your monitor to force a 4:3 ratio, or in your Graphic driver choose to have it handle scaling with the 'maintain Aspect ratio" option On.

You'll have black bars to the left and right, but it will look like it should and not stretched and ugly.

Thank you all
the thing is i'm not a noob at computers
so i didn't find any .ini or cfg file
that have resolution option
i found a cfg file.when i opened that with notepad.
There is another langauage that i don't understand
but i'm sure there is no option of resolution
so about graphic card resolution thing.i don't have that option also
i have Intel HD Graphics 3000
i think i have to live with it
i'll finish that game soon & then uninstall it
so thank you all for u'r kind help & support :)

Guyz guyz guyz guess what
i solved my problem
how ? this way >>
Step 1-Right click on u'r desktop select screen resolution select lowest screen resolution of u'r computer
Step 2-Go to u'r graphic card properties
Find resolution,in bottom of it
Set aspect ratio to Full screen
now save & exit
Step 3-Now again right click on u'r desktop-screen resolution
now select highest screen resolution or that u're using before.
Now run u'r game boom what u saw ? U'r classic game running in full screen
i think that way u don't need any widescreen patcher or software
just do these steps & u're ready to go :)
