    Game running at 1/4 of screen


    Game running at 1/4 of screen-immagine.jpg
    Sorry for the screen pretty "dark", in fact the game I was trying to play is called Dark Vengeance and it goes well at 640x480, while it just goes on a quarter of the screen for any higher resolution (the "loading" text refers in fact to the previous menu, which appears correctly, then goes sorta frenzy when I pause the game, once the game is loaded). I tried dx8dll and swiftshader, plus the lnk "-w" or "-windowed" mode, compatibility modes, etc... they seem not to work. Maybe is there any utility to force the game to run windowed or other fixes to make it work right at fullscreen?

    Unfortunely, it doesn't work. Tried the solutions which were posted (at least the ones which weren't specific for that other game) but they didn't solve (as the only featured video modes are D3D and RGB-8bit which is unbearably ugly). The problem in that forum's case is the screen being moved (while appearently showing all the contents), in my case the screen is cropped to the top-left corner. I found a video on Youtube saying that it's something to edit in the registry, but it still doesn't work as I set 1920x1080 on those values (max monitor resolution). I don't know what else to change, or if there's a program (not a virtual machine, I hope) I can run "to run" the game under specific environment (like a window).

    Do you have a link to this game? Is there any kind of editable ini file in the game install or AppData folder?

    You might try going into the game's options when the game is loaded and try to select a screen resolution or winnowed mode if available and see if that works. You can then try compatibility mode again.

    Post that YouTube link.

    This is main .ini of the game, and I've already tried changing something... but it doesn't look like it has anything more than the in-game menu, "window size" refers to some sort of scaling option of the game in fullscreen anyway
