Hi BCXtreme....I did try the different settings and it made my screen size smaller but the game size stayed the same....I went into those settings for pgame and changed the settings it said that I wasn't allowed permission to change. Bummer :0(

That's because Windows 7, by default, won't let you change files that are in the Program Files folder. There's an easy way around it. First, copy the pgame file into your Documents folder twice. Your Documents folder should now have a "pgame" and a "pgame - Copy". Go into the one that's just called "pgame" and change the 640 to 1024, and the 480 to 600. Then save the file. Now take that file, and copy it back to the program folder, overwriting/replacing the existing file. (Leave the "pgame - Copy" file in your Documents folder). Now try the game and let me know if it works, or if it changes anything at all.
