Default Zooming a selected window to full screen or free stretching?

Hey guys.

Can I do that? There is that fan made game that has broken vsync in full screen mode and I'm stuck with window mode to play without tearing. Any way you know of to zoom it in and have it on full screen or free streching? I also want it to have free aspect ratio stretching. The game is on standard 4:3 aspect ration.

Thank you in advance.

You could reduce your screen resolution to something kinda matching the window size if that's helpful!

Thank you for the reply, Joe.

I tried to change the resolution to the 640x480, the same as that of the window, but the top boarder of the windows refuses but to be fully visible which makes the lower part of the window off-screen, and it's an important part.

Hmm, maybe a custom resolution would help? But that could damage the video card.

Hmm...

How about 800*600?

It won't be full screen, but it'll be bigger than at the normal resolution...

The game has native 320x240 or 640x480 resolutions only, unfortunately.

I risked it and made a custom 640x 540 resolution and had the windows almost filling the screen. That the best I could do and it will have to work.

It gives a funny feeling playing at that resolution on the main 60" TV set.

For some reason Windows 10 plays this game in full screen, stretching it completely removing black margins and with no screen tearing!

That's on reason I'm glad I upgraded to Windows 10 haha
