I put this game on my xp with an installer. It plays just fine, but the screen is a small square in the middle of my monitor, it does not fill the screen. Anyone know if that can be fixed? I know GOG has this game, but I don't want to buy it from them if I get the same small screen. It's not that big a deal, because it's still very playable. I was just wondering. Thanks.

I've moved your post over to Glitches. There's probably a relatively simple fix for this problem. Let's wait for some advice.

Change your desktop resolution to 800x600 or 640x480 before starting the game.
Going by the age of the game, it probably runs in 640x480.
However with your desktop resolution at 800x600 the game window will still be reasonably large.

or
Right-click the game exe --> Properties --> Compatibility tab --> check checkbox for "Run in 640x480 screen resolution" --> Click OK or Apply to Save changes.

You might need to adjust scaling on your monitor or video card to prevent horizontal stretching if you have a widescreen monitor.

Will give it a try Jenny100, thanks. Did anyone buy it from GOG, & if so, did they fix it so it fills the screen?
