Windows 7: AppleWin Screen Ratio

AppleWin Screen Ratio

I used to like to play old Apple games, but since I got a widescreen computer, the AppleWin image gets stretch horizonally stretched. Is there a way to get it to display correctly ?

Can you set it to "windowed" mode instead of fullscreen?

Yeah, but the window is terribly small. Especially on a 15 inch wide screen. I can't play it like that.

Change the resolution of the window.

Change the resolution in the control panel ? That only distorts the screen. My screen is a widescreen. In a window, Apple Win plays in the normal 4:3 ratio. If I make it fullscreen, it stretches out horizonally. I changed the screen resolution like you said, but that only distorted the screen of my computer the way that Apple Win is distorted when I make it widescreen.

So, I downloaded the application, and it looks like it can not be resized. only the original resolution or fullscreen. Sorry, it won't do what you want. You may contact the makers of the application and ask that resolution changes be added in a future release.

So there's absolutely no way to get AppleWin to display fullscreen properly on a widescreen monitor ?
