Thread: Alpha 4 running on Win XP

    Default Alpha 4 running on Win XP

    I have a dos Alpha 4 program that ran well using Win 98 but now is having a problem with Win XP. The program is visible only on the top half of the monitor. I've tried correcting the properties but no luck.

    Does anyone know how I can get a full screen view without going back to Win 98?

    Thank you

    You will probably get more and better answers if you post this on the Alpha 4 or Alpha 4, Version 7 message board.

    My thought is you need to upgrade to Version 7 to achieve compatibility with XP; but, it's been a long time since I've done anything with Alpha 4. I hope others, more knowledgeable than I, will jump in here.

    If you can see the whole DOS screen but it only takes up half of the Windows screen, simple press ALT+ENTER to toggle between Windowed and Full Screen modes.

    Good luck.
