My screen size seems to have shrunk...

When I go to play RA, the game screen displays in a windowed form. Bear in mind I said game screen. The program itself is not windowed, but the image has been shrunken down and the rest of the screen is just black.

This actually happened a while back, when I was playing through Worms Armageddon. I have no idea how it happened, though. The reason I bring up WA is because, in that game, only the menu screens are shrunk. When I'm actually playing a match, the image reverts to full screen. Not such luck with RA, however.

Any idea what's causing this? Sounds like I might have messed with my computer's settings somehow. It's defeinitely not some third-party thing, as I've never downloaded any of those "windowed game" patches (like I said, it's not even technically windowed - the image has shrunk, but the program is still full screen, with the area not taken up by the image just blacked out).

Ah, this old problem. I'm going to assume you;'re playing on a laptop with an integrated graphics chipset?

Right click on your desktop, and scroll through the options. Somewhere in there is an option for 'panel fit'. Select 'fullscreen'.

At least, that's what I remember (and it's probably totally wrong); it's been well over a year since I last had to do this.
