    Hi guys!

    Running a MacBook with an additional Windows partition installed. Wanted to play some Age of Empires 2 and **** and i only own the Windows version an blah. I want to play it in 1280 x 1024 but when I set this resolution in PowerStrip it makes the whole screen scrollable. However, how can I force the picture to be stretched? My brother owns a widescreen monitor with a native resolution of 1440 x 900 and it can display a stretched 1280 x 1024 picture, although the native height is smaller. Must be possible somehow :/. It has an Intel GMA945 btw.

    Thank you all very much!

    Are you running Windows in a Boot Camp partition? If so, then you're probably using the Intel graphic drivers from the Leopard disk. What you can try is go to the Intel web site and download\install their latest Windows drivers for the GMA 945 graphic chipset. Newer drivers may support the resolution you want.
