Phantasmagoria Windows XP

Post by KellyLori » Wed Apr 29, 2020 7:58 am

I’ve installed Phantasmagoria with the original installation by changing my screen setting to 640. I installed it on my Windows XP laptop. I’ve also added the recommended patch. However despite this the game only fills most of the screen not all of it. Does anyone know of any wAy I can stretch it to fill out the screen?

Phantasmagoria is a VESA game that has a 640x480 (4:3 aspect ratio) resolution. I assume that you have a more modern wide screen display and want to stretch it to fill the screen. This will unnaturally distort the image, but if you really want to do that you will need to check your laptop's display settings, perhaps in the BIOS. I doubt that you will be able to with the Windows version, but may work with the DOS version. Try the SHP installer and select full screen after you have the display set to stretch the image.
