    Resolved [RESOLVED] dosbox wide screen

    Hi.
    I'm trying to play games in full widescreen resolution on my laptop windows 10 .
    The problem is that the games will always render on 4:3 . My resolution is 1920x1080
    Whatever configuration I use it will always skip back to 4:3 .
    At home with windows 7 I have done a full screen.
    So is it the OS, or the graphic card (it's intel UHD graphics) ?

    Here is the ini file, if you have any knowledge.

    Thanks

    Code:
    # This is the configuration file for DOSBox 0.74-3. (Please use the latest version of DOSBox)
    # Lines starting with a # are comment lines and are ignored by DOSBox.
    # They are used to (briefly) document the effect of each option.
    
    [sdl]
    #       fullscreen: Start dosbox directly in fullscreen. (Press ALT-Enter to go back)
    #       fulldouble: Use double buffering in fullscreen. It can reduce screen flickering, but it can also result in a slow DOSBox.
    #   fullresolution: What resolution to use for fullscreen: original, desktop or fixed size (e.g. 1024x768).
    #                     Using your monitor's native resolution (desktop) with aspect=true might give the best results.
    #                     If you end up with small window on a large screen, try an output different from surface.
    #                     On Windows 10 with display scaling (Scale and layout) set to a value above 100%, it is recommended
    #                     to use a lower full/windowresolution, in order to avoid window size problems.
    # windowresolution: Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.

    #           output: What video system to use for output.
    #                   Possible values: surface, overlay, opengl, openglnb, ddraw.

    Re: dosbox wide screen

    Went in Athens so I got my settings there.
    The laptop will scale better but it has black bars but not on 4:3, more like 5% on left and right.
    This seems to be either a monitor issue or a graphic card issue so I will post the settings if anyone is interested and close the topic
