Full Screen
Is it possible to use Dosbox on full screen? I don't like the small window; I rather play full screen? Is that possible?

Yep, Alt+Enter seems to work for everything to blow it up to the whole viewing area. That's an old Windows tradition, if I'm not mistaken...

Re: Full Screen
yes that is a standard key combo that is traditionally associated with enlarging the viewing plane of an application.

Get D-Fend. It's a frontend that will take all the pain out of DOSBox.

Open your dosbox.conf and change the line:

Fullscreen=false

to:

Fullscreen=true

Re: Full Screen
I was never able to have a full screen in Dosbox, even after changing every little setting that people told me to try.

I should use D-Fend.

First thing I tried when I noticed the maximise button was greyed out.

I thought it was just for having unique profiles for each game?
I would be interested in that, but not if it makes games look better than how they are originally

It mainly makes it easier to get the settings you want. You don't have to guess at it or know a lot of commands. Just check what you want. I've been using it for Monuments of Mars, and it's great. I wonder if I could get Alone in the Dark 2 to work, which I had trouble doing without the front-end.
