I'm playing Amber Journeys Beyond right now. I'm playing on Win 98 SE. The screen is very small I have tried several different resolutions but it still stays a small screen. Is this the way the game came out or am I not doing something right to get a full screen ?

Hi Hat...

I played this game a number of years ago with ML. I recall it played normally, and that we had no issues playing it. We also played on a Windows 98SE machine.

jkeerie did it play in full screen ? I'm not really having any issues or problems with it. It just isn't playing in full screen and I wondered if it played this way or if it was something that I haven't done to get it to play in full screen.

Hi hats! I'm going to dig out my Amber box this afternoon and try it on my old Windows 98 SE PC.

I can't promise success, but I'll give it a shot.

Okay.
I loaded it up and everything looks fine.
It fills the screen ............... but it's in letterbox format.
That means the screen is mostly frame with the gameplay taking place in a letterbox-shaped area within the frame.
If that's what you've got that's what you should have.
It's meant to be like that. That's what Hue Forest Entertainment intended.

Does that help? Smile

As I recall, Gelert...and it has been some time since I played the game....it wasn't windowed, but letterbox does ring a bell.

Yes JK. Apparently (I've just read), it was done to create a film feel and to enhance atmosphere during certain parts of the game, where parts of the surround are used t enhance the effects. Smile

That is interesting Gelert. The game certainly has alot of atmosphere and keeps me feeling there is something there just out of my vision.
